The loss of a limb is a life-changing injury. Amputation of a limb can occur as a result of traumatic injury. Things like car accidents, motorcycle crashes, workplace injuries, or farming accidents.


All too often, preventable accidents cause the loss of limbs. People who suffer amputation of an arm or leg need surgeries. Most need extensive rehabilitation. Some need a prosthesis, and job retraining to resume productive lives. It is important to contact an experienced attorney who understands your legal rights.


About one out of every 200 people have an amputation. Most cope with it well. Though, it may take time to adjust to the loss of a limb. Men are at much higher risk of amputation than women.


Two-thirds of amputations involve an upper limb such as a hand. Many occur because of circulation problems and vascular complications. Many are also caused by accidents. Sometimes, amputations happen because of accidents caused by careless drivers or negligent employers. This is where our team of personal injury lawyers can help you.
