Helping Texas Injury Victims Recover From Amputations
Whether they happen instantly in an accident or occur later as the result of an injury, amputations are one of the most debilitating injuries a person can suffer. They leave the injury victim with permanent disability and a possible lifetime of pain. It may not be possible for the person to work, care for his or her family, or enjoy former activities.
If someone else has caused you or a family member to suffer the loss of a limb, you can take action to hold the negligent party accountable. At the Dallas law office of Jerry D. Andrews, P.C., we represent victims of catastrophic injuries, including amputations. Our experienced, board-certified personal injury attorney can help you recover the compensation you need to face the future
The Cost Of Accidents Resulting In Amputations
Amputations can cause a broad range of side effects and problems, including:
- Phantom pain and wound pain
- Surgical complications
- Emotional distress
People who lose a limb, finger or other body part will require medical care for the rest of their lives. They may need treatment from surgeons, orthotists and prosthetists, pain management doctors, rehabilitative therapists and psychological counselors. Additional complications of amputations may arise years after the injury, making ongoing medical care necessary.
In addition to medical treatment, amputees need special medical equipment, including prostheses. The cost of prostheses — such as after a loss of a leg — is far greater than most people realize, even if insurance covers some of the expense. You will need financial compensation to cover these and other medical costs, as well as lost income and benefits. We will help to ensure you recover enough compensation, giving you peace of mind.
