Negligence knee surgery results in amputation - negligence claim settled for £150,000

At 75, David’s routine knee replacement operation went wrong when the surgeon cut the popliteal artery. The wound became infected eventually resulting in the need for an above knee amputation.

There were lengthy discussions about whether the damage to the artery could be attributed to substandard operative technique or whether it was a rare, but recognised, complication of the procedure. 

The amputation negligence claim was settled shortly after commencement of legal proceedings for £150,000 reflecting damages for the loss of limb, adaptations to the house, equipment and care needed to assist in minimising the effects of the amputation. 

The service was personal, professional and considered. I was treated so kindly and in the end I knew that not only had I found the right organisation but also the right person.
