Our Experienced Chicago Amputation Injury Lawyers Will Help You Obtain Fair Compensation
You couldn’t have known that the accident you were in was going to cost you one of your limbs. You never imagined that you would be living the rest of your life with an amputation injury.
Types of Accidents That Cause Amputation Injuries
A traumatic amputation injury may occur any time someone’s negligent or intentional actions (or inactions) result in an accident. However, some types of accidents are more likely than others are to cause an amputation injury. For example, an amputation may occur because of a:
- Workplace or household accident
- Defective product
- Car accident
- Medical errors
Whether you suffered an arm amputation at a worksite in downtown Chicago, a leg amputation after a car accident on I-94, a foot amputation after a medical error or mistake, or a hand amputation after a product malfunctioned in your home, you have suffered a catastrophic injury caused by a serious accident, and you deserve to know what to do next.
Life After Limb Loss - Medical Treatment, Support, and Financial Compensation
You may not be able to do the things that you once enjoyed or the work that once supported your family. There are other things that you may have to learn to do differently. The time following an amputation injury can be scary, and it can be one of significant adjustments. However, there are ways to recover and to continue living the life that you want to live on your own terms. You can, for example:
- Continue getting ongoing medical care to prevent infection, manage pain and achieve the fullest possible recovery.
- Talk to your doctor about a prosthesis, assistive technology devices, or other supports.
- Get physical and occupational therapy.
- Talk to a social worker, psychologist, or other support person.
- Get education or training to help you try to replace any lost employment opportunities you may suffer.
Of course, many of these things cost money. If your amputation injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, our attorneys may be able to help you recover compensation for your past, current, and future medical expenses as well as lost income, out of pocket costs, pain, suffering , and other damages. We have extensive experience in helping people who have lost limbs and other disabling injuries, and we can help you win your case and find the resources to make the most of your life after amputation.
