An injury that results in amputation causes devastating losses and a lifetime of financial costs. Whether the amputation is from a car crash, work place accident, or the result of medical negligence, amputations require costly surgical treatment, extensive physical therapy, and custom made prostheses.
Prostheses are expensive custom made artificial limbs designed to replace body parts lost by injury. Prostheses require costly replacement as they wear out over time.
Every amputation is catastrophic and life altering. Victims with these injuries require continued medical care, physical therapy, pain medications, and counseling to assist with issues such as depression and the loss of the ability to earn wages. Because of the severity of the situation, it is critical to contact a personal injury lawyer immediately.
Amputations can result in long-term phantom limb pain, depression, loss of employment and financial ruin.
