An Experienced Lawyer Dedicated to Improving Your Quality of Life
An infection or a traumatic injury to your limb can cause such extensive damage to blood vessels, nerves, muscles, bones and tissue that a limb cannot be saved. An amputation is a life-altering and traumatic event. You deserve every chance to regain functionality and improve your quality of life through urgent medical treatment, rehabilitation and lifelong care.

Damages Arising from Amputation
Modern technology has substantially helped individuals who have undergone amputation. For example, some prostheses enable better fine motor skills and athletic endeavors. State of the art equipment, such as special cars, ramps, computers and appliances, permit a heightened level of independence. However, accessing these important features requires money and benefits. Our goal is to give you the means of recovering functionality and living the healthiest and highest quality life you can after your amputation.
When calculating your damages, our attorneys consider your immediate needs and long-term costs and losses arising from amputation, including:
- Bleeding and shock
- Phantom sensations
- Permanent disability
- Joint deformity
- Loss of quality of life
- Mental anguish
- Diminished earning capacity
Our lawyers consult with medical doctors, vocational rehabilitation specialists, occupational therapists and other professionals who can testify to your damages.
