Catastrophic Amputation Injury Cases
Amputation injuries often result in tremendous blood loss and physical trauma. Traumatic amputations often occur as the result of automobile or motorcycle accidents. They can also result from untreated infection, workplace accidents or other unforeseen incidents. Individuals who work in construction or with machinery can be at higher risk of serious workplace injury. Accidents with saws or other cutting instruments or from crush injuries involving heavy machinery may require amputation surgery.
Determining the costs associated with an amputation can involve expensive surgeries, intensive physical therapy, and medical equipment such as wheelchairs or special prostheses (artificial limbs). A prosthesis is expensive and may require replacement as it wears out every few years. In addition, costs for counseling for the depression victims often suffer, medications, lost wages, and other expenses associated with this type of life-altering injury must all be carefully assessed.
An amputation injury can be a devastating injury requiring attendant care and treatment for a lifetime. Special damages must be collected to provide for the injured future needs.
