Compensation for Thumb Amputation in Newcaslte
Posted on March 4, 2022 by SheldonDavidsonSolicitors
Mr H was awarded £40,000 after undergoing a thumb amputation as a result of delay in treatment and surgery.
This medical negligence claim near Newcastle involved a delay in referring Mr H to a hand surgeon for further investigations and treatment after he sustained an injury to his thumb whilst at the gym.
The delay in treatment resulted in Mr H undergoing an amputation of his left thumb.
The Defendant admitted breach of duty in that there was a clear delay in appropriately investigating the thumb and that had the correct investigations been undertaken, surgery would have been performed at an earlier date.
However, the Defendant denied causation on the grounds that the thrombosis found in the thumb would not have been avoided if the appropriate investigations had been undertaken and the surgery undergone sooner.
How did we help?
Our independent Vascular Surgeon averred that surgery, involving a digital decompression, would have re-established blood flow within the thumb and the amputation would have been avoided.
The Claimant was awarded £40,000.00 from the Defendant.
