Any accident which results in a serious injury has traumatic effects. Those which cause permanent disability such as an amputation can take quite some time to adjust to, and an injured individual often requires therapy. Anyone who has been injured and suffered an amputation is advised to get the help of an experienced personal injury attorney. The legal team at the firm understands that money cannot begin to make up for what has been lost, but the compensation which is due to an injured individual can ensure that all medical needs are met and that some measure of the individual’s quality of life can be maintained.
Lawyer For Amputation Injury Cases
There are many types of accidents which result in amputation. The most common causes are vehicle accidents, industrial and agricultural, sports or recreation accidents and product defects. Regardless of where or how it happened, a person or entity that harms another through negligence or by making, distributing or selling a defective product is legally responsible to the person injured. An experienced amputation lawyer knows that there may be causes beyond the immediately apparent cause, and investigates the accident or event to determine the source of the liability. Often, an apparently simple accident may have resulted in serious injury through an equipment malfunction. The team at the firm is sensitive to the needs and issues facing a person who has suffered an amputation injury and takes a personal interest in a client’s future. A key component is to preserve evidence before the vehicle, product or equipment is fixed or replaced.
The costs of medical treatment and follow-up care can be extensive, and there may be future medical costs involved as well. The legal team uses expert witnesses to calculate the financial toll in preparing a claim for damages on behalf of a client. Additional losses such as loss of income, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and more will require compensation from the responsible party.
