Broomfield

Amputation Attorneys

Accidents can happen anywhere and anytime- at work, on the road, at home, and at play. Sometimes these accidents can result in serious bodily injury, including the loss of a limb, or an extremity, such as a hand, foot, finger, or toe. If you or a loved one have suffered such an injury due to the negligence of another person or organization, the Broomfield amputation attorneys at Hull & Zimmerman can help.

According to the National Limb Loss Information Center, approximately 1.7 million people in the U.S. are living with limb amputations.

There are two types of amputation- surgical and traumatic.

A surgical amputation refers to the loss of a body part that has been damaged in an accident or due to a serious infection. If the body part cannot be saved, it may need to be amputated surgically.

A traumatic amputation occurs when a body part
is severed or torn from the body in the accident.

Trauma accidents that may lead to amputation can include:

  • Traffic accidents involving cars, motorcycles, bicycles, or pedestrians, or
  • Work accidents involving heavy equipment or machines with moving parts.

If you have experienced the amputation of any limb or body part, you could be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim.

Compensation for Amputation Injuries

If the accident that led to your amputation was caused by the negligence of someone else, you may be able to file a personal injury claim. A personal injury claim seeks compensation for losses related to your injury. Speak to a Broomfield personal injury attorney right away.

The most obvious of these losses include medical bills. However, you may also be able to receive compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering,
  • Lost wages,
  • Loss of earnings potential, and
  • Future medical expenses, including the cost of prosthetics and artificial limbs necessary as a result of the amputation.

Advancements in prosthetic technology have restored mobility and function to many amputees. Some, however, are unable to return to their previous occupations, or in their full capacities. For these injury victims, compensation may include money for vocational training.

Adaptions to Lifestyle 

Losing a limb as the result of an accident will change your life forever. The use of a prosthetic or other assistive device may be necessary. In addition to a prosthetic limb, other assistive devices may include a cane, a walker, or a wheelchair. Your injury may necessitate modifications to your home, your surroundings, or your vehicle to allow you to function as normally as possible. All of these new adaptions can be quite expensive.

It will be imperative to retain the services of an experienced Broomfield attorney to guide you through the complex process of filing a claim for your amputation injury.
