Helping accident victims recover compensation for amputation and disfigurement injuries
Amputation is the removal of all or part of a limb or extremity such as an arm, leg, foot, hand, toe or finger during a serious accident such as a car, motorcycle, truck or pedestrian accident or through surgery because of such an accident. If you suffered an amputation during an accident caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongful acts, or if you needed a surgical amputation after such an accident, our Oklahoma personal injury attorneys at Cunningham & Mears may be able to help you recover compensation for your harm.
Amputation and disfigurement
Almost two million Americans are living with amputations. Amputation of the leg is the most common amputation surgery. Each highly qualified personal injury lawyer at Cunningham & Mears has significant experience helping accident victims recover compensation for a broad range of amputation and related injuries, including:
Medical care for amputation
If you suffer an amputation injury in an accident, you need to obtain immediate and continuing medical care to help minimize your injuries. Seeking proper medical treatment also gives you grounds for a personal injury attorney to help you recover compensation for the harm done to you if your accident was caused by the negligence of another party.
If an accident results in complete amputation, the part can sometimes be reattached if proper care is taken of the limb and severed part. In a partial amputation, the limb may also be attached depending on the severity of the injury. Proper emergency and critical care, surgery, early rehabilitation and prosthetics can help you in the long term, including minimizing your loss of earning capacity or enjoyment of life activities.
Recovering compensation for amputation
After an amputation of limbs or extremities — or disfigurement — you may face significant medical costs, loss of income and earning capacity, as well as pain and suffering. Our Oklahoma lawyers look at every aspect of your case to help you maximize your potential recovery from the negligent parties or insurers. We consider all immediate and long term medical care and rehabilitation:
We also present evidence regarding how your ability to earn income is affected by loss of limbs or disfigurement.
