Helping You Come Back From A Devastating Injury
Unfortunately, it is not always medically possible to save a limb that has suffered an extreme injury. Either the severed limb cannot be reattached, or it becomes necessary to perform a surgical amputation to save the rest of the limb or save the person’s life.
As a result, you may need medical care for a long period of time. Your home may need modifications, and you may need prosthetics. You and your family will require significant compensation to cover these costs now and in the future.
You will likely need to learn new ways of performing daily activities. You may need more assistance from others, and your career may change. All of this can take a toll on your psyche. Many amputation victims often require counseling to adjust to their new lives.
Insurance companies sometimes assign a dollar figure to amputations: X amount for a lost finger or toe, more for a lost hand or foot, and a certain amount for amputation of the whole arm or leg, or a double amputation. We work to ensure clients are compensated not by a formula but for the actual impact on their ability to work and enjoyment of life, as well as the psychological suffering.
