Amputation is the loss of part or all of a limb. Surgical amputations may be necessary in cases of birth defects, cancer or diseases such as diabetes which block adequate blood supply to the area. The most unfortunate amputations are caused by careless behavior and could have been prevented.
In situations where a amputation injury has occurred due to the fault of another individual or entity, the victim is eligible for compensation to cover the costs of healing, rehabilitation and daily living. There are strict time limits for applications for benefits. Unfortunately a fair and just settlement cannot be taken for granted. Experienced and knowledgeable legal advice is key to winning the compensation you deserve and require.
Traumatic amputation injuries often take place in:
- Boating Accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Car and truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Drunk driver accidents
- Workplace accidents (industrial, construction, farms and heavy equipment)
Traffic laws are in place to ensure the safety of all drivers, passengers and pedestrians. Every workplace must adhere to strict safety laws and is responsible for safe practices and procedures. Whether on the roadway or in the workplace, when important rules and guidelines are disregarded, or unenforced, the result is all too often a serious injury suffered by an innocent person.
Ongoing costs may include:
- Prosthesis and replacements
- Medication for pain
- Medication for depression or anxiety
- Wheel chair
- Special ramps or stair elevators
- Special modifications to kitchens, doorways, halls and bathrooms
- Assisted devices for driving and other daily activities.
A victim of an amputation injury will require immediate and in most cases, ongoing medical care. Usually he/she will not be able to return to work right away. Depending on the severity and location of the amputation he/she may not be able to continue doing his regular job at all. Insurance companies may be difficult to deal with and the whole situation can feel overwhelming. The loss of a limb turns life completely upside down for an amputee victim and his/her family, yet added to new expense and stress, regular household bills must be paid.
