Amputation Accidents

AMPUTATION AFTER AN ACCIDENT

In the United States, there are nearly 2 million people living with limb loss. Nearly 25% of all amputations come from traumatic accidents, including serious automobile accidents. Losing a can leave victims unable to work in their chosen profession, enjoy their hobbies, or even maintain an independent lifestyle. If you or someone you love was injured in an accident, and suffered an amputation, you will need compensation to pay for medical expenses, surgeries, rehabilitation, therapy and handicapped equipment.

Expert witnesses may be necessary to maximize your recovery following the loss of a limb in a motor vehicle wreck. Some of the most common, necessary experts include:

  • Accident reconstruction experts to establish liability
  • Life care planners to determine future medical and care needs following an amputation
  • Economists to calculate wage loss and the present day value of medical expenses
  • Physicians and therapists to specify the nature of past and future treatment

These experts can cost tens of thousands of dollars alone. Generally, the personal injury lawyers at Norton, Bowers & Hofstra, P.C., will NOT require you to pay a retainer for costs up front.
