Wrongful Amputation in Weston
Advocating for the Injured, collectively, for Over 40 Years
Most medical malpractice cases involve lingering illnesses, pain, and soreness, which is already inexcusable. Some doctors may act so negligently, though, that their mistakes lead to catastrophic and avoidable complications and consequences, such as a total amputation of a limb.
Medical malpractice can lead to amputation if:
- Incorrect medication was given after a surgery.
- Initial surgery was performed incorrectly.
- Infection in a joint was not diagnosed.
When a patient leaves a hospital in worse condition than when they arrived, a serious affront to patients' rights may have occurred. In order to set things right again and to help them cope with the difficulties related to limb and digit amputation, a lawsuit should be created quickly.

Difficulties with Compensation
When the consequences of poor medical practice are as severe as a wrongful amputation, it is likely that hospital staff will start pointing fingers at one another to avoid the blame. In some cases involving infection after a surgery, the patients themselves have been told that they are responsible for the amputation due to their alleged inability to follow a prescription's directions. If you need to make a case, you will be in for an uphill battle that could involve multiple parties.
To properly recover, you may need to sue:
- Surgical team
- Diagnosing doctor
- Prescribing pharmacist
- Hospital manager or coordinator
The bottom line is that your life is going to be hindered by the wrongful amputation, one way or another. As one of the most catastrophic forms of medical malpractice, it is likely to set you back for the rest of your life. The injury case that you bring against them should be strong enough to pursue compensation that helps pay for:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Quality of life decrease
- Lifelong medical expenses
