There are approximately two million people in America today living life as an amputee. Accidental amputation can result from a number of personal injury accidents including premises liability, product defect, car crash, or dog bite, and can have a devastating impact on the injured. The medical needs of an individual with a partial or complete amputation are very high. The surgery required to attempt to reattach a limb or to repair the injury so it can heal is expensive and extensive rehabilitation therapy may be needed for years to come.
If reattachment was not possible, an expensive prosthetic appliance could be necessary. Not only is the initial fitting and procurement of the prosthesis costly, but the appliance itself will need to be replaced periodically throughout a lifetime. Some individuals who are forced to suffer from an amputation may not be able to return their line of work, resulting in a large financial burden.

Workplace amputation injuries can be life changing. We can help.
In the case of a work injury involving a machine that caused an amputation, our comprehensive investigation may produce evidence that the machine lacked sufficient safeguards making this a product defect accident. Under these circumstances, the manufacturer could be held liable for the accident and have to compensate the injured person for all current and future medical costs as well as for any prosthetic, mechanical, or other aids that the client might need.
We take a thorough approach to understanding the circumstances of your accident to determine if you may be owed compensation and if so, we fearlessly and deliberately pursue what you are owed and deserve.
