The Realities of Amputation
If you have suffered the loss of a finger, toe, hand, foot, arm, leg or other body part, you face much more than physical challenges of adaptability. You may endure emotional turmoil, social awkwardness, chronic pain and numerous financial losses. In addition to bills for emergency medical care, you likely need financial compensation to cover:
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Medical care to deal with related complications such as ongoing nerve pain and “phantom pains” seeming to come from your missing limb
- Prostheses, which will need to be replaced periodically — particularly for children
- Disability accommodations, depending on individual circumstances
A successful premises liability, personal injury, or medical malpractice claim after an amputation will involve a detailed look at the facts of your case from several angles:
- Accident reconstruction: How did it happen?
- Liability: Whose negligence contributed to or caused your injury?
- Medical evaluation: How do your doctors expect you to improve over time?
- Pain and suffering: How is your day-to-day life affected by the amputation?
Every amputation case is unique and requires detailed evaluation and review. To maximize your ability to recover ample compensation, entrust your case to an experienced plaintiff’s attorney
