We Will Build a Case on Your Behalf and Help You Recover Compensation Nationwide
Amputation is a procedure in which an arm, leg, hand, foot, finger, or toe is surgically removed. Injury victims can lose limbs in traumatic accidents as well, in which extensive medical care is needed to minimize damage and prevent further issues. Regardless of how a person may have lost a limb, these injuries are catastrophic and can drastically alter the way a person lives their life.

Causes of Traumatic Amputation Injuries
Limb loss can potentially result from any type of traumatic accident. A person may also have a limb amputated because of an infection, illness, or other issue.
A person may lose a limb as a result of:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Work accidents (including construction accidents)
- Defective product injuries (including injuries caused by defective medical devices)
Limb Loss Treatment and Damages
Losing a limb is a devastating injury that will require extensive treatment and long-term care to manage. In addition to the surgery needed to address limb loss or complete an amputation, injury victims often need medication, medical devices, and physical therapy as well. Beyond the initial treatment for an injury, people who lose an arm or leg may require extended in-home care, assistance with daily tasks, or the continued use of medical devices to function. All of these types of care are expensive, but can be covered through an injury claim. The compensation provided through a settlement or verdict can cover the medical expenses you have paid, as well as the cost of anticipated medical expenses.
An amputation may cause an injury victim to be permanently unable to work, temporarily unable to work, or only able to work in a certain capacity. It is possible to receive compensation for the wages you lost while unable to work, and potentially the difference in income between the time before and after your injury. Additional financial damages, such as travel and transportation expenses, may be compensable through an injury claim.
Victims of limb loss and amputation injuries suffer from significant emotional distress and mental anguish, such as stress, anxiety, depression, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of purpose. In law, these issues are known as “non-economic damages” and are often summarized as “pain and suffering.” Injury victims can receive compensation for non-economic damages as well.
