Your Rights In Accidents That Cause Amputations
Loss of a limb is a life-changing matter. Whether a limb was lost in an accident or the limb suffered so much damage that it needed to be amputated, the victim may no longer be able to return to work. Medical expenses may include prosthetic limbs that are quite costly. If the accident was caused by an act of negligence, the negligent party should be held accountable for all of the costs the victim has incurred.

Loss Of Limb In The Workplace
Many of the loss of limb cases we see are the result of accidents in the workplace. While many of these are simple workers’ compensation matters, others lead to personal injury claims. For example, if the limb was lost in a punch press or some other type of industrial machinery as the result of a machinery defect, a defective product claim could be filed against the manufacturer. This allows hand amputation and other amputation victims to get more compensation than what is typically available through workers’ comp.
Do not worry about finances. We handle all limb loss accident cases on a contingency basis, so you do not have to pay any attorney fees until we get you the recovery you deserve.
