PHOENIX AMPUTATIONS ATTORNEY
Losing a leg, arm, hand, or foot is a devastating injury. The pain begins with the physical pain at the time of the accident. It continues with the physical pain of treatment and the continued treatments necessary to help minimize the damage to bone joints, muscles, ligaments, and other parts of the anatomy. The emotional pain can be worse. Amputee victims need extensive psychiatric and psychological help to cope with the loss of their limb. Then, there’s the functional loss of use of the limb which can mean the inability to work and difficulty with mobility, sleeping, and eating. Many amputees require vocational counseling.
At Amar Esq. PLLC, we are an amputations law firm that understand how traumatizing an amputation can be. Amputations are catastrophic injuries that require treatment by many different types of medical professionals. Our Scottsdale amputation attorney demands compensation for the lifetime of emotional pain, the lifetime of physical pain, the functional adjustments that must be made, the disfigurement of losing a limb, payment of all medical bills and prosthetics, and all lost income.
Arizona Lawyer for Amputee Victims Whose Lives Are Forever Changed
An amputation normally requires a great amount of force or damage to some part of the limb that requires that it be surgically removed. Some of the causes of limb loss are:
- Vehicle Crashes – When cars, trucks, trains, motorcycles, buses, or other vehicles collide; the occupants can be thrown into each other, into the dashboard, about the car, or even out of the car. The excessive force of any collision can cause the loss of a limb.
- Product Malfunctions – If a boiler, forklift, a piece of work equipment or a household consumer product malfunctions, a victim can lose a leg, arm, foot, or hand. Vehicles may malfunction too – such as when the brakes fail to work. Our Scottsdale loss of limb attorney holds the makers, distributors, and sellers of defective products liable when their defective products cause or require an amputation.
- Construction Site and Industrial Accidents – Workers can fall from scaffolding or ladders which are improperly designed, or, because proper safety procedures were not in place. Explosions can occur due to gas leaks or for a variety of reasons.
- Medical Malpractice – If a hospital, doctor or other medical provider causes you to lose a limb, the health company or provider can be sued for negligence. Medical error can include operating on the wrong body part, not treating infections correctly, failing to properly diagnose a medical problem, or for a variety of other reasons.
In amputation cases, one key element of any liability case or workers’ compensation case is the ability of the victim to use prosthetic devices. We work to help you get the right prosthetic device and to hold the wrongdoers accountable for the daily pain, anxiety, and frustration for having to work with the prosthetic. Many amputees also suffer phantom pain and trauma. They need help dealing with the fact that people will stare at them.
