Few injuries are more life-changing than an amputation or the loss of a limb. Whether you have lost an arm, a leg or a single digit, you may no longer be able to perform the activities and hobbies that once filled your life. You may no longer be able to work or return to your former profession. You may suffer from chronic phantom pain. Even with the help of a prosthetic device, life may never be the same again.
Amputation may result from industrial accidents involving heavy machinery. Some, though, result from motor vehicle accidents, truck accidents, or other types of severe accidents. Regardless of the type of accident, you may be entitled to financial recovery, through whether a workers’ compensation claim for work-related injuries or a personal injury claim against the negligent parties who contributed to your accident.
Amputation or lost limbs often lead to extensive medical expenses. Multiple surgeries may be required. You may also spend months or years undergoing physical therapy and other forms of rehabilitation.
Through a personal injury or workers’ compensation claim, you may be able to obtain compensation for these expenses as well as other out-of-pocket expenses and lost wages. A personal injury claim may also lead to monetary damages for your pain and suffering. Because each case is different, it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer about your rights.
