Causes Of Amputations
Amputation injuries are often the result of car accidents, motorcycle accidents, farm incidents, workplace/crush accidents, medical malpractice, unsafe products and power tools. Many on-the-job accidents are caused by inadequate or faulty machine guards, improper equipment training, unsafe work conditions, or machines that have been improperly repaired or modified by the employer.
How We Approach Amputation Injuries
We begin working on each case as soon as our client retains us. This involves a thorough investigation into the cause of the accident and gathering as much evidence as possible. We need to identify the cause of the accident as well as any liable parties.
Frequently, amputations are the result of personal injury accidents, such as car accidents and motorcycle accidents, but sometimes the investigation reveals that the real cause of the accident was a defective product. Individuals may also lose limbs due to a surgical error.
Once we have gathered the facts and identified any negligent parties, we will evaluate your damages. Insurance companies are often quick to contact people after an accident in an effort to settle the claim. Unfortunately, those settlement offers are seldom enough to cover the costs and expenses associated with lost wages and medical costs including making and adjusting prosthesis. If the amputation forces a career change, retraining and an accurate measurement of lost earning capacity must be factored in. There are many other damages that also must be calculated.
Our clients trust us to look out for their interests. This means that we must focus our energies on maximizing recovery for our client to ensure a fair settlement.
