Three Types of Accident-Related Amputations
An amputation is the loss of a limb, foot, hand, or digit. Not all amputations
are caused by negligence, which would not call for an amputation injury
claim or lawsuit. However, if you know your amputation was caused by someone
else’s mistake or at least suspect it, then you should feel free
to reach out to our firm. We handle cases originating from all sorts of
amputations and incidents.
Three of the main causes of amputations that call for an injury claim are:
Negligent-related accidents: The vast majority of amputation claims and lawsuits involve limb loss caused
by violent trauma. For example,
truck accidents, and
motorcycle accidents are all common causes of catastrophic, life-changing injuries like amputations.
If you were in an accident that someone else caused and you lost a limb,
hand, or digit because of it, then we want to hear from you right away.
Workplace-related accidents: If you suffered a workplace accident that caused an amputation, then you
might be eligible to receive
workers’ compensation benefits. Our attorneys can review your workers’ comp coverage and make sure
that you are given the full benefits owed to you. We know how to overcome
objections and complications put forth by employers and workers’
comp insurance providers alike.
Medical malpractice: As upsetting as it might be, medical negligence on behalf of a doctor or
surgeon can cause an amputation that could have been avoided. Wrongful
amputations like surgically amputating the wrong limb or digit are more
common than you might think. Also, a
cancer misdiagnosis and other forms of
misdiagnoses can indirectly cause an amputation, too. For example, if a doctor fails
to notice cancer cells growing in a limb and that limb later needs to
be amputated to stop cancer from spreading more, then the doctor could
Compensation Owed to Amputees
The outcome of an amputation is always devastating. As such, it is only
fair to assume that the compensation owed to you as an amputee should
be significant. Our attorneys do not rush any part of the injury claim
process, especially not when calculating the damages owed to you for your
losses. We want to make sure that you get every penny of compensation,
so you have the best chance of feeling a sense of closure when the case finishes.
Damages owed to you from the liable party might include:
- Past and future medical costs
- Rehabilitative therapy costs
- Medical prosthetic costs
- Lost wages
- Reduced income capacity
- Emotional suffering
- Physical pain
- Lessened enjoyment of life
- Permanent disability complications
- And more
