The loss of a limb through a work accident, car crash or construction site incident is traumatic, disabling and life-altering. Obtaining compensation when another party is responsible can be difficult, leaving one feeling as if no one understands or cares.
If you are one of the lucky ones who has had a reattachment of a limb and it is functioning just as before, you are still entitled to compensation if the injury was caused by someone else’s negligence. If reattachment was not successful or even possible, you will be looking at adding additional long term support that will last for the rest of your life.
The recovery from the loss of a finger or limb lasts for months, and can put a strain on families physically, emotionally and financially. Surgery and wound care are often the first steps to recover from an amputation, followed by physical therapy and sometimes prosthetics. While our clients are recovering from their injuries, they nearly always lose time from work. Their injuries might also limit their ability to ever return to work in the field in which they had previously been employed. Long term consequences can include lack of ability to drive or play sports. Victims of amputation also experience a reduced ability to perform daily tasks such as doing laundry or washing dishes. Some of our clients have had to hire in home care givers or assistants to help with the performance of their routine activities of daily living. Long term help is not inexpensive.
An experienced personal injury lawyer looks at the totality of the case when presenting the request for compensation to the at fault party and their insurance companies. All of the losses described above contribute to the justification for financial recovery.
