Accidents That Result In Traumatic Amputation

Traumatic amputation refers to the loss of limb that occurs due to an accident, not because of medical procedure. Traumatic amputations can occur as the result of a car accident, drunk driving accident and many other types of serious accidents.

Have you or a loved one lost a limb in an accident? Discuss your case with an attorney from The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, PLLC. Call 866-719-4394 or contact us online for a free consultation.

Long-Term Effects

The immediate results of an amputation can be horrific: loss of blood, extreme pain, emotional trauma and more. But once the initial shock wears off, and once the wounds heal, amputees face a sad reality: The loss of a limb is forever.

As personal injury attorneys, it is our job to assess the current and long-term effects of an amputation. In order to obtain full compensation for an amputee, we consider these effects:

  • Can the amputee continue the same job? If not, will he or she have to work for less money at another job?
  • What are the long-term medical costs expected to be? Will rehabilitation or therapy be needed?
  • Will the accident victim need a prosthetic device? How often will the device need to be replaced?
  • What other opportunities will be missed because of the amputation?
  • What psychological and emotional effects resulted?

No matter what the cause of the amputation — a motorcycle accident, a truck accident, serious work injury or machinery accident — it is important for any amputee to consult a lawyer as early as possible after an accident. At The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, PLLC, we charge no attorney fees unless we recover compensation for an accident victim. If you have suffered a traumatic amputation, your main concern should be becoming healthy after your accident — not wondering how you will pay for legal representation.
