San Diego Amputation Attorneys

Amputation or Limb Loss in an Accident

A catastrophic injury is a type of injury that occurs suddenly and without warning, and has life-altering effects on the victim. Amputation is one of the most severe types of catastrophic injuries and is without question one of the most tragic types of personal injuries an individual may endure. The loss of a limb or body part is not only emotionally, physically, and financially taxing for the victim as it permanently impacts their life, but also affects the family and loved ones who are trying to help the victim recover and regain a sense of normalcy. In the event that your amputation injury is caused by the negligence of another party, a knowledgeable personal injury attorney in San Diego can help you obtain the compensation you need to treat and recover from your injuries.

The loss of a body part or limb can cause a permanent or semi-permanent disability, in addition to a loss of a quality of life.

Overcoming Serious Challenges After an Amputation

The physical challenges of an amputation injury are tremendously difficult as a person will likely have to relearn basic things, such as walking, driving, or even holding a pen, and manage their everyday life without the use of the lost limb or body part. An amputation can also cause psychological and emotional conditions. These invisible scars can include depression; post traumatic stress disorder; loss of self confidence and self esteem due to scarring or disfigurement; and anxiety or grief.

Why Should I File an Injury Claim After an Amputation in San Diego?

The initial costs of an amputation are quite expensive, and the continued care and treatment you may need will add an additional financial burden to an already difficult and challenging situation. Multiple surgeries may be needed to repair nerve damage, and if a prosthetic limb is used, it is costly to buy and may need to be replaced every few years. If your amputation injury was caused by the negligence of another party, it is imperative that you seek compensation to help pay for your present and future medical care by filing a personal injury claim. An injured party can receive compensation for several types of damages, including, but not limited to, past, present, and future medical expenses; lost income and wages as a result of the injury; and pain and suffering that was brought to you by the injury.
