The Cost Of An Amputation Is Considerable

Amputations can be caused by injuries from medical malpractice, car accidents, truck accidents, workplace accidents, construction accidents and defective products. Regardless of the cause, an amputation injury can leave the victim with:

  • Wound pain and phantom pain
  • Tissue and skin death
  • Prosthetic complications
  • Muscle atrophy
  • Infection
  • Depression or PTSD

The recovery period after an amputation can take months or years, depending on the severity of the injury. Some people will need therapy to help them relearn skills such as grasping objects, dressing, eating or walking.

In addition to medical bills, medical equipment costs, pain management and therapy, many people need compensation to cover the cost of modifying their homes and vehicles. To recover this amount of compensation, it is best to work with a law firm that has the skill, resources and reputation to fight for you.
