Amputation Injury In Philadelphia
Amputation. Is there a scarier word for you to hear after suffering an injury in an accident? Losing a Limb – a leg, foot, hand, arm, toe, or finger – is one of the worst things that can happen to you, as amputation brings life-altering changes. Amputation will severely impact various aspects of your life, and the loss of a climb is something you will have to live with for the rest of your life.
That’s why it is vital that you seek maximum compensation from the party that caused the accident resulting in the amputation. A person may lose his or her limb in a Car Accident, Motorcycle Accident, bicycle accident, Truck Accident, Slip and Fall Accident, Dog Bite, Medical Malpractice, and any other accident or incident.
Make sure you speak to a Philadelphia Amputation Injury Attorney from The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., to determine the value of your case. Unfortunately, many victims who lose a limb after a traumatic event fail to properly assess their damages and losses.
Recovering Damages for Amputation Injury
Do keep in mind that amputation will have a colossal effect on your ability to live your life to the fullest, live a happy life, do the things you have always enjoyed doing, find a romantic partner and get married, work and earn a living to provide for yourself financially, raise your children, and many more.
Regardless of whether you underwent a foot amputation, hand amputation, leg amputation, arm amputation, toe amputation, or finger amputation, losing a limb will most likely negatively impact you on a physical, mental, and emotional level.
Our experienced Amputation Injury Attorney in Philadelphia explains that you have the right to recover damages if another individual or entity is at fault for causing the accident that necessitated the amputation surgery. Just because your surgeon found a way to reattach your limb or help you find a suitable prosthetic limb does not mean you lose your right to seek compensation.
Amputation’s Effect on Your Life (Evaluating the Damages)
Amputation can have a tremendous effect on the quality of your life, as it can affect even such “basic” everyday activities as walking, sitting, standing straight, eating, brushing your teeth, operating a vehicle, working on a laptop or computer, and even holding your phone.
Suppose another party is to blame for causing an accident in which you lost your limb or suffered a severe injury and had to undergo an amputation surgery. In that case, you have a right to hold that party responsible for all your resulting damages and losses, both past and future expenses.
Suppose a Philadelphia Amputation Injury Lawyer represents you. In that case, your attorney will consider various factors, including the mental, physical, and emotional effects on you and any complications you may expect in the long run.
A skilled Personal Injury Lawyer from The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., will consider whether there is a risk of neuroma (severed nerves that send pain messages to the brain), surgical errors during the amputation, post-surgery bone spurs, decreased blood flow to the amputation area, weaker residual limb, phantom pain, and many more.
