A person’s life can change dramatically after enduring the amputation of a limb or digit. However, if an amputation was due to the negligence of a third party, you may be entitled to compensation to help you and your family adapt to your new life.
An amputation of any limb can affect a person and their loved ones dramatically. An amputee may be no longer be able to perform their job, or they may be unable to work altogether. They will require specially adapted items to assist them in their everyday lives, from kitchen implements to automatic cars. In the worst cases, their home may need to be adapted.
Aside from the emotional trauma associated with amputation, many people continue to suffer physical pain due to common issues such as phantom limb pain, contracture, necrosis and chronic neuroma.
Science and medicine is evolving rapidly and there are prosthetic devices and medical equipment available to help an amputee to lead a fulfilling life. Compensation can ensure an individual has the funds to get the very best medical treatment and equipment both now, and in the future.
