The loss of a limb or appendage will permanently change your life
Many people cannot imagine what their life would be like without a limb, but the reality is that thousands of people across the nation are affected by amputations every year. Some amputations are due to medical conditions such as infections, cancer, and other diseases that could have been avoided if the overseeing medical professional had not been negligent in their care. In other cases, amputations are caused by car accidents, defective products, unsafe working conditions, and other traumatic events.
While the causes of amputations vary, the results permanently change the victim and their loved ones’ lives forever. Of course, there is the immediate cost of treating the injury, but for many victims, it’s only beginning. The ongoing expenses incurred by follow-up appointments, physical therapy, medications, and other additional treatments can quickly overwhelm a family. Additionally, the victim may not be able to return to work for an extended period of time, if they can return at all.

We specialize in complex personal injury cases and work with the region’s premier medical facilities to help our patients get the best possible care.
