The amputation or dismemberment of a limb can result from an accident caused by the negligence of another party. Losing a limb, whether a finger, an arm or a leg, can be a traumatic experience that can severely impact all aspects of the victim’s life. An individual who loses a limb may need assistance for even the simplest everyday activities, such as eating, walking or showering.
Amputation victims usually require multiple surgeries, extensive physical therapy and mobility devices. These requirements are expensive and can wreak financial havoc on the victim’s life. That is why an amputation victim should seek legal help to obtain the maximum damages for his or her injuries. Some damages that victims may be entitled to include:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Future earning capacity
- Any other out of pocket expenses resulting from the accident that caused the amputation
