Amputation is the loss of a limb and that can have a serious impact on a person’s future and their overall quality of life. In fact, the impact on the quality of life is permanent rather than temporary. From there, the focus is to establish the best possible life and sometimes that includes prosthetics.
If you have been involved in an accident that has caused you to lose a limb either directly in the accident or because it had to be medically removed due to the effects of the accident, you may have a personal injury claim. With the help of an experienced Mankato personal injury lawyer, you can file a solid claim against the party responsible for the accident and the resulting injuries.
Skilled & Dedicated Representation
It is through skilled and dedicated representation that you are able to get the result that you are looking for. It first starts with determining who was at fault in the accident. Sometimes it is one person or entity and other times it is multiple parties. Each responsible party will be named in the claim so that the proper compensation can be sought from each.
When it comes to amputation accidents, they can occur anywhere. They can occur at work, in car accidents, due to medical error, in construction accidents, due to defective products, during an assault, in a warehouse where entrapment by heavy equipment may occur, or when simply walking down the street. There are many ways in which accidents leading to amputation can occur and there is usually someone at fault for those accidents.
Seeking The Compensation You Deserve
There are different types of compensation that you claim and more than one of those can be pursued in your case. Your Southern Minnesota personal injury attorney will closely evaluate all aspects of your case to determine the present and future damages so that you receive the compensation you need to cover both. For instance, you can receive money to cover your medical expenses, lost wages from missed work, pain and suffering, and other applicable costs. Another expense is the cost for childcare if you are unable to care for your children during your lengthy recovery.
While money does not take away the loss of the limb, it does reduce a great deal of stress during the healing process. There is no having to worry about how the bills are going to get paid. Instead, focus can be placed on the actual recovery. The more a person can focus on recovering and re-establishing quality of life, the easier it is to move forward past the accident.
