Texas car accident victims often suffer devastating injuries that require extensive treatment and time off work. Most injuries, such as lacerations and bone fractures, can heal over time if treated properly. Yet some injuries could last a lifetime, such as when victims lose one or more limbs.
The Dallas amputation injury lawyers at the Law Offices of W.T. Johnson understand that it is possible for someone to lose a leg, arm, foot, hand, toe or finger any time there is a high-speed collision. The force of an accident can be so severe that victims are crushed inside or trapped by the bent metal and broken glass.
Immediate and effective medical treatment may lessen the damage, but it is not always possible to reattach the damaged body part. Factors that could affect the possibility of reattachment include:
- the duration of time between the accident and receiving treatment
- the overall medical condition of the victim
- the part of the body that was amputated
- the extent of the damage
If you are an amputation injury victim, even after lengthy and expensive physical therapy, you may never regain your previous strength or physical ability. You might not be able to perform work as you once did, and even suffer from depression and a decreased quality of life.
If your amputation injury resulted from an act of negligence, the at-fault driver can be held accountable for your significant losses. Our skilled attorneys can help you pursue support for your medical expenses, cost of rehabilitation services, lost wages, loss of earning potential and other related damages.
