Philadelphia Amputation Attorney
Loss of a limb is nearly always devastating. Depending on the facts of a case, the injured person may be simply grateful to be alive after a dramatic rescue. Nonetheless, this gratitude for life does not take away from the many losses and expenses that go along with an amputation injury.
After losing a hand, an arm, a foot or a leg, an amputation victim typically has to cope with some or all of these losses and needs:
- Emergency medical care
- Lingering nerve pain
- Loss of function, with accompanying disability
- Adaptation to a prosthesis
- Ongoing maintenance and period replacement of the prosthesis
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
It is important to seek legal counsel as soon as possible after any type of accident resulting in loss of a limb:
- A car or truck accident
- A construction accident
- A “freak accident” of any kind
- An explosion
- A machinery accident in a factory or elsewhere
Beware of early settlement offers from potentially liable parties. You need to know what you are really facing for a lifetime before agreeing to accept a low dollar amount in compensation. Are you likely to need additional surgery? Will you have to completely retrain for a different line of work? Will you be unable to work at all anymore? This might be the case of a pianist who loses a hand, for example.
