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.
Accidents that cause a person to lose a limb can happen anywhere, including
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.
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:
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.
