New York Attorneys Representing Those With Amputation Injuries
The loss of a limb or other body part is a traumatic event and can cause extensive physical and emotional damage. Amputations may occur in a variety of situations, but when they are the result of accidents, negligence or medical malpractice, it is important to hold those responsible for your injuries liable for your recovery. Coping with the aftermath of an amputation will take more than monetary compensation. However, a settlement will allow you to pay for medical bills, lost wages and other expenses while you deal with the other aspects of your recovery.
At the law firm of Friedman, Hirschen & Miller, LLP, our personal injury lawyers represent clients in Albany and throughout the state of New York. We will evaluate your medical records and the circumstances surrounding the accident and provide realistic options for your legal situation. Our attorneys will be honest and direct with you about your case and your chances of success.
Victims of amputations require long-term care, prosthetics, physical therapy and job retraining. We will work hard to ensure that you do not have the sole responsibility for paying for these aspects of your recovery. Contact us and speak with an attorney at no charge about your amputation.
Reasons for Amputation
After losing a hand, arm, leg, eye, hand, foot or other body part, it can difficult to cope with the aftermath of the amputation. You will have to adapt to getting around and working in a different way. Additionally, phantom pain can occur in the time following the amputation of a limb.
The need for amputation can occur for a variety of reasons, including:
- Trauma from car and automobile accidents
- Workplace injuries
- Failure of healthcare providers to exercise reasonable care
Many of the accidents that cause the loss of limbs and other parts are preventable and are due to negligence or misconduct. Our firm can help you explain your injury and will work hard to obtain the medical treatment and other benefits that you need for your injuries.
