When you experience an injury caused by an accident, the consequences can be overwhelming and life changing. A more serious accident, such as a product malfunction, trucking crash, motorcycle accident, or motor vehicle crash can result in the amputation of a finger, hand, or even an entire limb. This is where JHC’s Overland Park amputation injury lawyers can help.

In many cases, the injury could have been prevented had it not been for the negligent actions of another. If you have experienced an amputation due to another person’s negligence, it is important that you speak with a knowledgeable Overland Park amputation injury lawyer from Joseph, Hollander & Craft.

Amputation Causes

Approximately 185,000 amputations occur in the United States each year and at least 30,000 of them are traumatic amputations. Motor vehicle accidents cause nearly 30% of all traumatic amputations. Amputations can also be caused by:

Our Overland Park Amputation Injury Lawyers Handle Traumatic and Surgical Amputation Cases

Generally, amputations fall into two categories: traumatic and surgical. A traumatic amputation happens when there is an accidental or unintentional severing of a limb or body part, typically as a result of a catastrophic accident or traumatic event. A surgical amputation occurs when a surgeon must perform a procedure to remove a limb or body part. Such a procedure is typically necessary as the result of severe injury, infection, vascular disease, cancerous tumor, frostbite, neuroma, diabetes, or to control pain or illness. While a surgical amputation is usually planned and occurs in a controlled manner and environment, traumatic amputations are sudden and painful and can cause shock and lead to death.

Regardless of how it occurs, the loss of a limb is one of the most overwhelming and life-changing events that can happen in anyone’s life. Amputations can be the result of a serious injury or an infection or disease, such as diabetes or cancer. No matter the cause of the amputation, it will permanently change the amputee’s life.

Our Overland Park Amputation Injury Lawyers Can Help Recover the Compensation You Deserve

The loss of a limb also affects the amputee’s family members and close friends who may have to assist the injured person with lifestyle changes, physical limitations, emotional distress, and, of course, burdensome costs. An entire family’s day-to-day life can be turned completely upside down as the result of an amputation injury.

When this happens because of the person or company’s negligence or wrongful conduct, the injured person is entitled to collect financial compensation from the at-fault party. That’s where JHC’s Overland Park amputation injury attorneys can help.

Damages Resulting from Amputation

The costs for medical treatment and recovery from an amputation can pile up quickly. You will also need to seek compensation for intangible losses. A lawyer with expertise in amputation cases can help you calculate damages, both economic and non-economic.

It is important to recover economic damages for all financial losses, such as the expense for the hospital stay after an amputation and extensive physical and occupational therapy to relearn how to perform day-to-day tasks.

Non-economic damages are based on the effect the injury has on your life. By way of example, if the accident resulted in the loss of one arm, it can affect the ability to parent children or care for aging parents, both of which affect happiness and general life enjoyment.

An Overland Park amputation lawyer at Joseph, Hollander & Craft can help you pursue monetary damages to address the medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, lost earning capacity, mental anguish, and pain and suffering that can result from an amputation injury.

How can an amputation affect my life?

Your life after an amputation injury will not be the same as it was before you suffered the injury. There will be adjustments to your day-to-day life to acclimate to your new physical condition, which might include issues with mobility and dexterity. Your new routine might now involve regular rehabilitative therapy to manage the pain that can carry on for years after the injury occurs. All of this can and should be addressed in your personal injury claim. Trust JHC’s personal injury lawyers to handle it.

Will I need a prosthesis after my amputation?

The need for a prosthetic device depends on the location and severity of your injury. Modern prosthesis can help restore mobility following an amputation. You will also need physical therapy to help you learn how to use and live with your new prosthetic device. Obtaining a prosthesis can be difficult and expensive. That is why it is important to seek the compensation you are owed after an injury results from someone else’s negligence.
