When Negligence Leads To Amputation
If you or a family member has suffered an auto accident injury that led to loss of limb, it is important that you speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. This type of catastrophic injury will require long-term medical care that is too costly unless you receive compensation from the negligent party.

We Fight For Victims Of Amputation Accidents
Vehicle accidents can result in amputations for many reasons, including:
- Traumatic amputation when a body part is severed in the accident
- Limbs pinned or crushed in the accident
- Leg amputations from motorcycle accidents
- Burn injuries or gangrene that require surgical amputation
- Broken bones that become infected
Regardless of the reason for the amputation, the injury victim will need considerable medical treatment that may include surgery, pain management, rehabilitative therapy and psychological counseling. Prostheses and additional medical equipment are also common in these cases. Depending on the specifics of the injury, modifications to the person’s home and vehicle may be necessary.
It may not be possible for the injury victim to return to work or care for himself or herself, at least for a while after the accident. We will seek damages for these losses as well.
