Amputations

Scottsdale Personal Injury Lawyer Fights for Compensation for You

One of the most awful physical injuries a person can suffer is the traumatic loss of a limb. When an individual loses all or a portion of a limb due to some sudden event such as a car crash, construction accident, boating accident or industrial accident which causes the avulsion of a body part, there is often an immediate danger of dying from the blood loss. If the victim survives the initial event, the danger of blood clots remains. Regardless of the outcome, any traumatic amputation of a limb is certain to be a life-changing event. And if that traumatic and sometimes fatal amputation was a result of negligence, recklessness or the intentional act of another person, the victim may be entitled to bring a formal legal claim against the responsible party for recovery of medical expenses, loss of earnings, loss of the enjoyment of life, and all other emotional, physical and economic losses he has suffered.

After an amputation, an individual must completely relearn their life as an amputee. Learning normal functions and movements such as walking, writing, driving, and eating can all be greatly affected by the loss of a limb. The traumatic mental, emotional, and physical impairments that a person may endure after the loss of an arm or a leg can be taxing. If the loss of the limb was the direct result of an accident, the victim may even feel strong emotion toward the liable party. It is important that after an accident where major trauma is endured, that you retain the representation of an aggressive attorney who will dedicate the experience and legal provisions needed to ensure that the compensation you are owed is paid to you.

REMEMBER: If the other side's claims adjuster calls to "interview" you or "take your statement," politely decline -- at least until after you have spoken with an experienced traumatic amputation injury and wrongful death attorney. Despite what the insurance adjuster might tell you, he or she is NOT "just trying to help."
