Loveland Amputation Lawyer

Amputation, the loss of a body part, is a devastating injury. Some amputations occur in unexpected traumatic accidents, and others occur in hospital operating rooms when the damage is too severe for a surgeon to save a limb. Regardless of how or where an amputation occurs, you might face many physical, emotional, and financial setbacks as you try to move forward after you lose a limb.

A Loveland amputation lawyer could help you start rebuilding your life. Our experienced catastrophic injury attorneys could assist you in pursuing compensation in a personal injury claim against the person or entity responsible for harming you.

Frequent Causes of Amputation

Some people need to have a limb amputated due to medical conditions, such as diabetes, cancer, infections, tissue damage, blood clots, or blood vessel disease, that do not respond to other medical treatments. Sadly, there is not usually anything a lawyer can do to help in these situations. Unless there is proof someone did something to cause the amputation, such as if a medical care team negligently failed to recognize the signs of a dangerous infection, there is no legal basis for bringing a lawsuit.

When an amputation occurs during an accident or becomes necessary because of a traumatic injury, the injured patient might have grounds to file a claim suit if someone else did something to cause the amputation injury. Some of the incidents that can lead to a legal claim after an amputation are as follows:

A Loveland amputation lawyer could use their skills, resources, and knowledge to look for proof of another person or entity’s negligence.

Potential Aftermath of Amputations

People who have a body part amputated frequently experience lifelong changes.

Medical Expenses

An amputee’s medical bills can be staggering. They often face lengthy hospital stays and might need extensive rehabilitative treatment. They might need prosthetic devices, which must be replaced throughout their lives. They might need home renovations to accommodate a wheelchair or even move to a new home.

Work Changes

Depending on what kind of work they performed before their injury, they might have to alter their career plans. For instance, a construction worker would not be able to return to the same line of work after losing a leg. They might have to settle for another job with a significant pay cut. Over their lifetime, that reduction in pay could result in a great deal of lost wages and potential earnings.

Mental Costs

Many amputation survivors experience intense mental trauma. Even looking at their own body could trigger a negative reaction. They sometimes deal with mental anguish, anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder, which may require counseling and medication.

An amputation lawyer in Loveland understands the full impact an amputation can have on an affected person and their family and could work tirelessly for maximum compensation.
