Poor diabetic foot care

Our medical negligence solicitors' client, Mr. Risdale, suffered a minor twisting injury after stepping off a kerb, resulting in swelling that led him to seek medical care from the nurse at his GP surgery. He was wrongly diagnosed as having cellulitis and was not referred for specialist diabetic foot care. His amputation followed multiple missed opportunities by practitioners at his GP surgery and a hospital radiology (x-ray) department to refer him for specialist foot care and to diagnose his condition.

Our experts helped Kevin make an amputation compensation claim for his pain and suffering, partial loss of earnings, extra care, increased accommodation costs, equipment, and therapies. Prior to settlement, interim payments paid for bespoke prosthetic limbs, including a water activity limb, enabling him to return to his former hobby of kayaking.
