Catastrophic Injury Claims Involving Limb Loss

Living with an amputation injury will change your life forever. Even if you are able to get an advanced prosthetic to replace the missing limb, hand, foot, or digit, your life will not be the same. Day-to-day complications can arise, as well as debilitating chronic pain.

If your amputation was caused by another party’s negligence, then you could be owed significant compensation from them. Let Rubenstein & Rynecki and our New York City amputation attorneys help you form and follow your claim to a positive conclusion. Thanks to our extensive legal experience, we can challenge the most stubborn and powerful insurance companies and oppositions, all while you rest and focus on other important matters in your life.

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, car accidents, 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 be liable.

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
