How much compensation could I receive if my amputation was the result of medical negligence?

The amount of compensation you can expect to receive will depend on exactly what you are claiming for and your particular circumstances. The main determinant will be what was amputated and a range of factors are considered when compensation is awarded. For example, if your hand or arm was amputated, then you can expect a higher award if it was your dominant hand, reflecting the additional difficulties you will have in re-learning how to manage even basic tasks with your other hand.

Ultimately, it’s the impact that the amputation will have on your life — now and in the future — that will determine the size of the award.
