What to Do After an Amputation Injury or Limb Loss

An amputation injury has life-altering consequences for the victim and their family. Losing a body extremity can result from a motor vehicle crash, workplace accident or home repair injury. Often, such accidents are caused by a person's negligent behavior, in which case an injury claim can be filed to retrieve compensation.

The injury lawyers at The Law Office of WT Johnson have recovered more than $106,000,000 for their clients in the Dallas, Texas area and the firm has over 25 years of experience in representing clients in different kinds of personal injury cases. We can help bring you justice by recovering compensation from the liable parties in your accident. Our attorneys will help prove the negligence of the liable parties if they don’t admit to their error. We will also help you quantify how much your amputation injury is actually worth. This is not always easy because damages related to pain and suffering, mental trauma, strained personal relationships and diminished quality of life are difficult to put a dollar amount on, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be compensated.

Using our experience, we will help you determine exactly how much compensation your are entitled to for all of these damages so you have an idea of what a reasonable settlement offer is. Our Dallas injury attorneys meticulously investigate every case they take on in order to improve our negotiating position when dealing with the insurance companies. If your case ends up going to court, we will leave nothing to chance and will investigate and prepare your case until we feel comfortable that we can win.

The Trauma of an Amputation

In some amputation cases, the body part is lost in the accident itself, in other cases, it is removed by the hospital to avoid an infection or diseases from spreading throughout the rest of the body or to save a victim from bleeding to death. Just about any type of amputation has very grave consequences for the victim. Amputations generally require serious medical treatment and often extensive after-care. Multiple surgeries may be necessary, prosthetics, and weeks, months or even years of physical therapy. Amputation victims may not be able to perform their profession after their accident and consequently lose their jobs. After their accident, many victims suffer from mental trauma, which they may struggle with for the rest of their lives.

An amputation is something that is very difficult to deal with mentally, which is why therapy may be needed to help the victim cope. Modifications may be necessary to the victim’s house and car to allow them to retain their independence. The consequences of an amputation can also be difficult for family and friends of the victim, putting strain on their relationships. Overall, quality of life will likely never be the same again. If a negligent person or entity caused your amputation accident, you deserve to get compensated for any and all of the aforementioned damages.

Personal injury cases are often complex and worrying about the complicated legal process that is involved in filing an injury claim is the last thing you want to be doing while recovering from your amputation injury. It is advisable to hire an experienced Dallas catastrophic injury lawyer to handle your personal injury claim, as they will be able to negotiate a better settlement offer or retrieve maximum compensation after a court battle.
