The Catastrophic Nature of Amputation Injuries
Every year in the United States, an average of 30,000 people suffer from traumatic amputation injuries. Many are caused because of others’ negligence, and others occur in the workplace. In addition to the overwhelming frustration, fear and emotional hardship associated with such catastrophic injuries, our lawyers understand that any traumatic loss of a limb irrevocably alters accident victims’ lives, resulting in costly medical care, lost income, pain and suffering, and permanent disability. Accident victims who endure traumatic amputation often require additional surgery, and extensive physical and occupational rehabilitation in order to learn to live with their substantial limitations. No amount of money can replace a lost arm or leg, but retaining a personal injury attorney can be a critical step for an injury victim to obtaining compensation from those responsible.
Causes of Traumatic Amputations
Accidents that cause a person to lose a limb can happen anywhere, including
- High-speed or roll-over car crashes
- Trucking and commercial vehicle accidents
- Motorcycle wrecks
- Pedestrian collisions
- Bicycle crashes
- Construction and other workplace accidents
- Defective equipment or machinery
- Medical malpractice
Complications After Amputation
Traumatic amputation victims endure profound consequences. In many cases, such injuries result in permanent disability, ending careers. In addition to the immense financial hardship associated with such injuries, victims can no longer perform tasks that many of us take for granted, such as putting their clothing on, writing, bathing, walking, holding and playing with their children, and others.
Advances in medicine may allow physicians and surgeons to reattach a amputated limbs depending on the nature of the injury. Guillotine amputations, such as when a limb is “chopped off,” have a greater chance of successful reattachment than a crushed limb, or an avulsion amputation (where the limb is sheared off). In addition to saving a traumatic amputee’s life, surgical reattachment of a severed limb is of high importance immediately after an accident. However, even when limbs are fortunately reattached following amputation, victims have a long road to recovery. Initially, there is often a high risk of infection, and in dire circumstances, sepsis. Victims often also have to endure physical therapy to re-learn how to use their reattached limbs as well, and often do not regain full functioning of the appendage.
Damages in Traumatic Amputation Cases
The types of damages a personal injury plaintiff may recover from negligent defendants vary from state to state. However, our attorneys pursue all types of damages to which our clients are entitled by law. Depending on the facts of a case and the applicable law, these may include compensation for:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost income
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Punitive or “Penalty” Damages if the defendant’s conduct is egregious, such as fleeing the scene of the accident or driving while intoxicated (subject to state law)
- Loss of consortium
- Emotional distress
In the appropriate case and depending on the nature and extent of the injury, the age of a given client, and the amount of money available to compensate the victim, our attorneys may employ financial experts to determine our clients’ lost income over a long period of time as well as future medical costs. Sometimes it is also necessary to determine the costs of making an injured victim’s home more handicap-accessible in light of the injury.

Our Promise to You
- Treat your case as if it were our own. We'll treat you the same way we would want to be treated – as if it were our own case, or the case of a close friend or family member.
- Protect you from powerful insurance companies. One of the first things the insurance adjuster will typically say is that you do not need an attorney. That's because the insurance company's goal is to pay you as little money as possible. And they know that injured people get substantially more money with an attorney representing them. With over 38years of experience dealing with insurance companies, we can help you navigate through the insurance company minefields and avoid any traps.
- Analyze your case at no charge to you. We'll evaluate your situation and advise you how to best protect your rights, at no charge to you. We invite you to call us 24 hours a day, including weekends and holidays to request a free consultation with one of our experienced personal injury lawyers.

- Give your case our personal attention. We tell our clients: "We want you to concentrate on getting well. We want to hear from you if you have any questions or concerns. We work for you, not the other way around."
- Promptly return phone calls and keep you informed. We are sure you've heard about professionals who do not return phone calls. Or, perhaps you have spoken to people using other law firms who never knew what was going on with their case. That won't happen with us. We keep our clients well informed of important developments and routinely send copies of correspondence regarding their case.
- Be there for you when you need us most. When our clients first call us after a serious injury, they're understandably really worried. And we say to them, "You don't have to do this alone."

That's the kind of help we've been giving for over 38years.
