Any amputation is a life changing injury.
While the loss of a body part can occur as the result of a medical condition or procedure, most often they are the result of a traumatic event, such as an auto collision, electrical mishap, explosion, shooting, or accident with machinery.
Survivors of amputations due to the negligence of another may seek damages including:
- Medical expenses – including home modifications
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Permanent impairment
- Mental distress and suffering
