Personal Injury and Civil Trial
New Jersey Lawyers Representing Sufferers Of Amputation Injuries
Motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, car accidents and workplace injuries are ways that many people lose limbs. Loss of a limb is a devastating event. Even the loss of a finger or a couple of toes can be a terrible blow. Pain and suffering, loss of function, disfigurement, and ongoing therapy can take a toll. The loss of an arm, hand, foot or leg is even more difficult to deal with. You may not be able to continue at the job you had before — or you may need occupational retraining or extensive rehabilitation to go back to work.
Grappling With The Challenges Of Living With Amputation
Amputation is not impossible to adapt to, of course. However, amputees often report difficulties including phantom pains. A prosthetic foot, leg, hand or arm may be needed — and will be expensive. For all these reasons, legal representation as soon as possible after an accidental injury resulting in amputation is strongly advised.
Getting The Legal Advice And Representation You Need
An experienced, skillful personal injury attorney on your side can make a large difference in the outcome of your case after an accidental injury leaves you with amputation injuries. A detailed investigation can determine exactly how the accident occurred, who is liable to compensate you and what sources of funding exist. Your fate may depend in part on what insurance policies cover the person or other entity that may be responsible. A motorist, a property owner, a product manufacturer or a subcontractor at a worksite may have been negligent. A well-researched, well-composed injury claim or lawsuit may enable you to recover money you need for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wage replacement
- Physical and occupational therapy
- A prosthesis (and anticipated replacements for the rest of your life)
- Pain and suffering
