Life-altering injuries resulting in amputation surgery are classified under the sensitive and complex area of catastrophic injury law. There are a myriad of possible causes of amputation injuries. Vehicular accidents or incidents with machinery involving jagged or sharp debris can tear through soft tissue and muscle, requiring amputation of extremities or more. Such incidents can often be fatal. Our catastrophic injury lawyers at The Werner Law Firm can help you when you need it most.
FIGHTING FOR CATASTROPHIC INJURY JUSTICE
It is important to understand that where another party is at fault for such injuries, you have a right to sue them not only for medical damages suffered, but additionally for:
- Pain and suffering.
- Loss of consortium (intimacy, sexual relations, partaking in spousal activities, etc).
- Loss of current and future earnings.
- Expected future medical care.
- And, generally, the financial or economic equivalent impact on your future life.
Insurance companies and adjusters will generally fight on issues ranging from liability (who is at fault for the incident), to whether or not you actually suffered a catastrophic injury to claim, to the extent of the reasonableness of your medical bills to treat such injuries, and even the extent you claim the injuries affect your day to day life!
