Amputation

In certain catastrophic accidents, people could have certain body parts completely severed. In some cases, medical professionals may need to remove a body part in order to avoid infection or prevent an accident victim from bleeding to death. Some of the most commonly amputated include:

  • Fingers
  • Toes
  • Hands
  • Feet
  • Arms
  • Legs

An injury that requires amputation could be the result of any one of a number of accidents. Examples include, but are not limited to such cases as:

  • Auto Accidents
  • Construction Accidents
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Premises Liability
  • Product Liability

A person who has a body part amputated not only endures physical pain and phantom pains that can last several years, but there is also a profound emotional trauma for victims. Many people are unable to return to work, and the loss of a limb can significantly affect their basic enjoyment of life.

When these types of injuries are caused by the negligence of another party, the individuals or businesses at fault could be liable for damages suffered by the victims. If you had to undergo a partial or total amputation because of another party’s negligence, you should be aware that the responsible party will have an insurance company seeking to pay as little as possible to resolve your claim—and possibly paying nothing at all. While they can initially seem friendly and concerned, insurance adjusters are actually attempting to get you to make recorded statements in which you either share blame or admit fault for the accident that led to your injury.

It can be very difficult to obtain the financial damages you need for your immediate and long-term needs by attempting to handle these types of cases on your own, but the West Chester amputation attorneys at Ciccarelli Law Offices will work as a team to fight for every dollar that you are owed. Additionally, you do not need to worry about paying our firm any initial fee, as we only get paid if you get a monetary award because we handle these cases on a contingency fee basis.
