Accident Related Amputation, Loss of Limb & Amputation Injury Lawyers

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 amputation injury due to the negligence of another person or organization, the knowledgeable amputation injury 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 injury 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 Northglenn personal injury lawyer 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 amputation injury victims, compensation may include money for vocational training.

Adaptations 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 amputation 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 adaptations can be quite expensive. It will be imperative to retain the services of an experienced Northglenn personal injury attorney to guide you through the complex process of filing a claim for your amputation injury. Located in Northglenn, CO, our personal injury lawyers have extensive experience representing injured accident victims in Arvada, Broomfield, Thornton, Westminster, Northglenn, Lafayette, Superior, Louisville, Brighton, Commerce City and throughout Colorado.
