Injuries Resulting in Amputation or Paralysis

Why You Should Hire a Personal Injury Specialist

The amputation of a limb due to an automobile accident or work-related incident leaves not only physical wounds but also unseen emotional scars.

Catastrophic injury or illness usually occurs suddenly and without warning. Management of a catastrophic injury is complex and requires the expertise of a team of health professionals including physicians, consultants, nurses, therapists, and counselors.

Recovering from an amputation can involve a constant stream of challenges, including multiple surgeries and intense physical therapy. It can take many months or even years for the amputee to regain confidence and the ability to do the things most people take for granted. When a person loses a leg or an arm, he or she must learn how to walk and maneuver all over again.

Amputations also result in extremely high medical bills, physical and psychological rehabilitation fees, loss of income, and a lifetime of paying for prosthetic limbs, wheelchairs, and costly living and transportation accommodations. To cover these expenses, victims of amputation may be entitled to compensation for their injuries from the negligent party involved.

Paralysis caused by medical malpractice can result from operating errors during back surgery, inexperienced physicians, anesthesia mistakes, and others.

Medical providers are required to advise their patients of the paralysis risks involved with any surgery near the spine. When a medical provider does not explain the risks, or takes unnecessary actions without fully explaining the patient's options, they may be found negligent for causing the paralysis.

The needs of someone who has experienced paralysis or amputations are obviously long-term and expensive. The victim may experience lifelong loss of income and mobility as well as facing other major challenges.

With good medical attention the injured victim can often make an excellent recovery, but they deserve adequate compensation from the responsible parties in order to properly continue their lives.
