Amputation Injuries


An amputation injury changes the lives of the victims and their families forever. Amputation and dismemberment involves the removal of a limb through a work accident or a vehicle accident, and is one of the most traumatic, life-altering and disabling of all personal injuries. Amputations often require a lifetime of costly medical care, rehabilitation and physical therapy, prosthetics and modifications to their homes and vehicles. Often, the family of an amputee must assume the role of caretaker.

Damages in Amputation Cases

An amputation can have hidden costs and a far-reaching impact on your future:

  • Medical costs
  • Vocational rehabilitation
  • Future surgeries
  • Prosthetics
  • Long-term home care
  • Disfigurement
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wage loss
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Transportation service
  • Permanent or partial disability

The emotional trauma of losing a body part could take many years to stabilize. Normally an amputee or disfigurement victim will need special pain medication, psychotherapy and hospitalization to deal with the serious after effects of loss of a limb, or destruction thereof. Huntsville amputation accident victims are often unable to work or earn a living and get paid again. Amputation injuries that result from the carelessness of others can leave the victim to cope with long-term physical limitations and severe emotional trauma.
