Amputations:  Catastrophic Injuries Due to Someone’s Negligence


If you have suffered an amputation due to an injury accident caused by some other third party, you need to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer.  Amputations cause physical, emotional, and occupational problems. It is an injury that has lifelong effects for the victim and his or her family. Depending on the severity of the amputation, you may be unable to return to work or engage in your usual activities. You may also be faced with a lifetime of pain and medical care.

How will you and your family adapt to these changes? Having financial support is important. The award winning injury lawyers at William Rawlings & Associates can help. We have more than 35 years of experience getting compensation for injury victims and offers personal attention for your case needs.

Life after amputation can be horrific as amputations are one of the most devastating injuries, often causing permanent disability.  In addition to disability and loss of limb the effects of a partial or complete amputation can include:

  • Phantom pain
  • Wound pain
  • Loss of mobility
  • Psychological trauma

The amputation surgery is only the beginning of the required medical treatment. A person who loses a limb also needs long-term medical care such as pain management, rehabilitation, physical and occupational therapy, psychological counseling, and more.  These injuries require compensation to pay for the prostheses and necessary medical care. In addition, you need help to cover the cost of making your home and vehicles accessible and safe. Your family may also need compensation for lost income. Trauma is the second leading cause of amputations in the U.S. Common types of trauma can include:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Burn injury
  • Dog bites
  • Surgical errors

You need experienced and compassionate representation in these situations.  We recently settled a case for a young truck driver who lost a leg in a semi-truck accident and was no longer able to drive his semi-truck.  It was the only work he knew and he worked for that position.  He had 7 young children under the age of 13 and he was the only bread winner. We negotiated a multi-million dollar settlement along with a monthly income for the rest of his lifetime.
