Amputation injuries are some of the most serious personal injuries a victim can endure. Not only does the victim have to deal with the trauma of being involved in an accident or incident that causes the loss of the limb or digit, but the victim also must deal with the impact of an amputation injury for the rest of his or her life. Losing a limb places a hardship on the victim, and for that hardship, the victim deserves fair compensation. Accident victims that lose a limb as a result of the negligence of someone else should seek the advice of an Atlanta amputation injury lawyer.
Amputation injuries are common in a number of personal injury cases. For instance, amputation can result from:
- Automobile accidents.
- Motorcycle accidents.
- Accidents involving large trucks.
- Boating accidents.
- Aviation accidents.
- Workplace accidents.
- Construction site accidents.
- Defective products.
Amputations are in their own right painful, and living with the aftermath can be a challenge. Amputations are prone to infection until they are fully healed, and can be incredibly tender for months after the amputation has occurred. Some victims experience a condition called phantom limb syndrome, where their brain still perceives that their limb is attached to their body. Phantom limb syndrome is a psychological condition, which can make it challenging for amputation injury victims to cope with. If you have incurred an amputation injury in an accident or incident, contact a personal injury attorney in Atlanta right away.
It is hard to fully imagine what it is like after losing a foot, hand, arm, or leg due to an accident or serious injury. Life would change forever. From having to learn how to function with prosthetics to possibly adjusting one’s career, there are a multitude of quantifiable damages an experienced Atlanta amputation injury lawyer needs to pursue to help you if someone else’s negligence caused you this infirmity.
Understandably so, amputation injuries are extremely costly and require an enormous amount of medical care as well as a significant investment of time to be spent learning how to adjust to a new life. Not only are there the medical expenses from the acute injury and the subsequent operations and procedures, but there are modifications to life’s needs that must be accounted for as well.
Anyone who has lost a limb or digit because of amputation resulting from an accident that was brought on by the negligence or recklessness of another needs to contact an Atlanta amputation injury lawyer immediately.
