Amputation Injury

The loss of an extremity in an accident typically requires extensive rehabilitation and, often, costly prosthetics. For that reason, if you have had a limb severed in a motor vehicle accident or by a dangerous or defective product, you will want legal representation from an attorney who understands your future and all the costs associated with the loss of a limb and how to obtain the compensation necessary to pay for your present and future care. An Experienced Florida Personal Injury Lawyer in this field will advance the costs and expenses necessary to successfully litigate these cases.

Amputation injuries are permanent injuries that may result in lifelong disability. An amputation, by definition, is the loss of a body part, usually a finger, hand, or arm, or a toe, foot, or leg. Traumatic amputation injuries occur when the limb is wholly or partially severed in an accident. Amputation can also be surgically performed when a limb cannot be spared due to serious injuries. Victims of traumatic amputation are at risk for serious complications, including bleeding, infection, shock, and death. A knowledgeable Florida Injury Attorney in the Amputation Injury Claims subject will assist you to successfully litigate these cases.

Adults and children with dismemberment injuries resulting from all types of accidents include:
