Florida attorneys for amputation victims injured in automotive and work accidents

 

Accidents resulting in amputations are complex cases due to the severity of the injuries. An arm or leg amputation is a permanent disability that will change how you live daily, personally and professionally. It will require months or even years of recovery and adaptation. This article will talk about the accidents that can cause amputations, and the rights you would have as an amputee victim. We are talking about your right to be compensated for medical expenses, lost income, pain, suffering, job loss, and the harsh rehabilitation you will undergo. 

 

A person who has to have a limb amputated is disfigured and will be disabled. At best, a person who has lost an arm or leg faces a long road to recovery with extensive physical and psychological therapy. An amputation victim will face significant:

 

  1. medical expenses, 
  2. loss of ability to work, 
  3. loss of recreational activities, 
  4. increased difficulty in carrying out day-to-day tasks due to the loss of independence
  5. loss or limitation of movement and
  6. pain and suffering, physically and mentally, by the loss of a limb

 

If you lost a limb in an accident in West Palm Beach, Florida, caused by someone else's negligence, Advocates USA could help you with a compensation claim. Our respected and trusted West Palm Beach catastrophic injury attorneys will discuss your case. If you are in the hospital or at home, our attorneys can make provisions to arrange a visit to obtain more details of the accident. In addition, we help victims of traumatic amputations to protect their rights to ensure justice is served.

Causes of Amputation and Traumatic Loss of Limbs

 

Traumatic amputation is when a limb (arm or leg) has to be amputated due to an accident. A medical amputation is necessary when a limb has been badly injured. Sometimes doctors can reattach an amputated body part after an accident or assist an amputee using an (artificial) prosthesis.

 

Traumatic limb amputations can result from accidents such as:

 

 

Technology has come a long way in prosthetics in recent years. New limb replantation techniques have made great strides, but incomplete nerve regeneration is still an essential factor affecting the full use of replanted limbs. Consequently, a properly fitting functional prosthesis is often more helpful to the patient than a non-functional replanted limb. For this reason, if a limb has to be amputated, a prosthesis is used. 

 

Amputation and limb loss accidents are costly

 

There is no telling how costly a prosthesis can be and how difficult and long-lasting it can be to adjust to living with a prosthesis. The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health says in a widely cited study of health care costs associated with amputation or reconstruction of an injured limb that the projected average lifetime cost for patients who had undergone an amputation was more than $509,275 in 2002, or $674,720 when adjusted for inflation, three times the costs for those treated with limb reconstruction. Due to the cost of surgery and devices, it is crucial to have a good lawyer who will hold the negligent party responsible and ensure all medical expenses and future expenses are covered.

 

The study calculates the costs of:

 

  • Initial hospitalization.
  • Additional hospitalizations related to limb loss and reattachment.
  • Rehabilitation of hospitalized patients.
  • Outpatient visits to doctors.
  • Outpatient physical and occupational therapy.
  • Purchase and maintenance of prosthetics.

 

The study did not consider other costs related to limb loss, such as lost wages, pain and suffering, and reduced quality of life. Our Florida accident attorneys will consider all expenses, including future costs, in a compensation claim.

 

Florida law allows victims of traumatic amputations caused by the negligence or recklessness of others in either a car accident or a work accident to file personal injury claims for financial restitution. These legal claims, which in most cases are paid through insurance, are intended to make the victim financially well off.
