Amputation injuries are some of the most catastrophic and life-altering
injuries possible. 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.
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, inconvenience, loss
of consortium (intimacy, sexual relations, loss of doing various activities
with a spouse, etc.), loss of current and future earnings, expected future
medical care, and generally the financial or economic equivalent of the
injuries impact on your future life.
Insurance companies and adjustors will generally fight on issues ranging
from liability (who is at fault for the incident), to whether or not you
actually suffered the injuries 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! Our personal injury and
amputation attorneys at the Werner Law Firm deal with insurance companies
on a regular basis, and will fight to make sure you are rightfully compensated
