You use all your limbs to complete various tasks every single day. Losing one would change your life dramatically.
If you’ve been involved in an accident that resulted in amputation, you may be facing a range of struggles. Contact a Los Angeles amputations attorney at the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg if you believe your accident was the result of another party’s negligence. There’s a strong possibility an attorney could help you recover financial compensation for your losses.
Various types of accidents may be severe enough that they require the amputation of a victim’s limbs. Examples include (but are not limited to):
These types of accidents are often potentially avoidable. They may occur because of someone’s negligence.
For example, many motor vehicle accidents result from the carelessness of a driver who fails to consider how their choices behind the wheel can impact others.
Or, consider the example of an accident requiring amputation that occurs as a result of using a defective product. Product manufacturers and designers have a duty to ensure what they sell is free of defects that can cause harm when their products are used as intended. If a defect causes an injury that necessitates amputation, the victim could potentially file a claim or lawsuit against the designers of the product that harmed them.
Contact a Los Angeles amputations attorney if you believe your accident resulted from another party’s carelessness. If a lawyer believes you have a valid case and you decide to work together, they will typically begin pursuing the compensation for which you may be eligible by investigating your accident to determine who is to blame.
An injury that results in loss of a limb will require costly medical treatment. You likely are not prepared to pay for said treatment. Additionally, depending on the nature of your job, there is a good chance that losing a limb will render you unable to work. This will rob you of an income.
These financial difficulties may be exacerbated by a variety of other non-economic struggles you might face as a result of an amputation. It’s possible you will struggle with physical pain for some time after your accident. You might also have general difficulty taking care of yourself, tending to the needs of your family, and adapting to your new condition.
You deserve to be compensated accordingly if your accident occurred because another party was careless. You can also seek compensation if you lost a limb as a result of an on-the-job accident, regardless of whether negligence was the cause.
Recovering the compensation you deserve will typically involve filing an insurance claim. Because an insurance company will probably attempt to deny your claim or convince you to accept a low settlement offer, it is very wise to hire a Los Angeles amputations attorney in these circumstances. A legal expert can handle negotiating with the insurance company on your behalf. This improves your chances of recovering the compensation you may be owed.
