Amputations can become necessary for several reasons but are often the result of serious injuries. When you lose a limb to trauma, you may struggle with expensive medical bills and difficult adjustments. If your injury was incited by someone else’s negligence, legal action can help you gain access to the resources you need.
If you are interested in pursuing a lawsuit, our team at MVP Accident Attorneys would be pleased to evaluate your case and guide you through the process.
Amputation is an expensive medical procedure, and this is just the beginning of the physical, emotional, and economic costs of losing a limb. To heal properly, you will need medical treatments, rehabilitative exercises and activities, pain management, and vocational counseling. You may also choose to be fitted with an artificial, or prosthetic, limb, which requires care and training. Additionally, you will have to make adjustments to your home environment, family life, and career.
Every individual and/or team on the list above needs to be paid. After an amputation, you will also be unable to work, during recovery and beyond. These financial burdens can quickly add up, and if someone else caused the accident that led to your injury, you should not be responsible for them.
Our team of attorneys uses a modern approach to hold at-fault parties liable and recover compensation on your behalf. Not only can a lawsuit pay for your medical and rehabilitative expenses, but it can help you account for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and other non-economic damages.
In the United States, doctors perform approximately 185,000 amputations each year, and about 2 million individuals are living with a loss of limb. Amputations produce a permanent disability and can affect your ability to move, work, and care for yourself – this procedure can also have a significant impact on your self-image. With the right care, rehabilitation is possible, and those who have undergone amputations can live independent and meaningful lives. To maximize your capabilities, however, you will need the highest quality of care and assistive devices, especially while you are adjusting to your newfound limitations. Treatment programs do not come cheap, but our California amputation lawyers can help.
According to John Hopkins Medicine, “amputation is an acquired condition that results in the loss of limb, usually from injury, disease, or surgery.” Many amputations are caused by traumatic accidents and injuries, particularly to the arms. About 75% of upper extremity amputations are trauma-related.
Hiring our firm will not be another expense for you during this difficult time because you don’t pay unless we win. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means your recovery covers our legal fees.
