Legal Help For Victims Of Complications Of Amputations

There are a number of scenarios where a patient has to undergo an amputation procedure due to doctor or hospital negligence. For example, if a person suffers a wound to his or her foot and the wound is not treated aggressively, a bone infection may develop, resulting in an amputation of the leg below the knee.

Patients who are taking immunosuppressive drugs are often more susceptible to infection. If such a patient develops an infection and it is not properly treated, an amputation can be an unfortunate consequence. Additionally, patients with diabetes have a much greater chance of requiring an amputation than a person without the disease.

At the Law Offices of Gary Osborne & Associates, we believe in holding doctors, nurses and hospitals accountable when they fail to uphold their duties of care. The loss of a limb due to medical negligence is an unexpected and disturbing event. We have successfully handled difficult amputation cases, and we will do our best for you. No amount of money can restore what you have lost, but getting the compensation you need and deserve can help you begin to move forward in life.

Failing To Monitor The Surgery Site

If a patient undergoes surgery and the surgeon or other professional fails to monitor the site, a circulation problem may go undetected and lead to amputation of the limb that has been deprived of oxygen.

If a medical error or the failure to aggressively treat a problem while it is still in a treatable stage is the cause of your amputation, our experienced medical malpractice lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve. We recognize that an amputation may prevent you from working the same job you did before, putting your family's financial health in jeopardy. We work aggressively to obtain full compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering, medical bills and emotional stress.
