Denver County amputation injury attorney

Denver Amputation Attorney Serving Colorado

Of the different types of catastrophic injuries that a person can experience, amputations are among the most severe. The loss of a limb or another part of the body is an injury that will never fully heal, and it will serve as a permanent reminder of one of the most traumatic experiences of a person's life. Because of this, amputations can often result in serious emotional trauma on top of the physical issues related to a person's medical care and rehabilitation. Amputees will need to determine their options for addressing the expenses related to their injuries and the other ways they have been affected, and they may be able to recover compensation through a personal injury lawsuit against the person or parties who were at fault for their injuries.

The lawyers of The Gold Law Firm know how difficult life can be for amputees and their family members. Victims will often need to make significant adjustments to their way of life, and they may be unable to participate in many of the activities they had previously enjoyed. A person's ability to return to work may be affected, and their options for finding employment in other jobs may be limited. They will also need to adjust to using prosthetic limbs or other equipment, and they may struggle to complete regular daily activities such as preparing meals or taking care of household chores. At the same time, they may experience significant emotional trauma that can greatly impact their quality of life. We work to ensure that victims will receive compensation that fully addresses all of these issues, allowing them to move forward successfully, recover to the fullest extent possible, and meet their family's ongoing needs.

Recovering Compensation for Amputation Injuries

In some cases, amputations occur because of medical conditions such as cancer or diabetes. However, many amputation injuries are caused by traumatic accidents. These include car accidents in which victims suffer severe injuries to their arms or legs, such as T-bone collisions where a person's limbs may be crushed by the impact of a vehicle's door or head-on collisions where a driver's legs may be pinned under their vehicle's dashboard. Truck accidents are more likely to lead to amputation injuries due to the large size and weight of commercial trucks. Amputations can also occur in motorcycle, pedestrian, bicycle, golf cart, or scooter accidents in which a person is struck by a motor vehicle.

The expenses related to treatment for an amputation injury can be very high, and a victim may be able to receive compensation for all of these costs and other ways they have been affected. Emergency medical treatment may include transportation in an ambulance, treatment in an emergency room, emergency surgery to remove a limb that has been damaged beyond repair, and hospitalization. Multiple forms of ongoing medical treatment will also be needed, including any additional surgeries that are required, regular doctor visits, and medications for pain, infections, or other medical issues. A person will also need physical therapy to build strength and compensate for the loss of a limb or other body part, as well as occupational therapy to ensure that they will be able to complete different types of daily tasks.

The costs of prosthetics and other assistive devices can also be significant. Artificial limbs can be very expensive, and they may need to be repaired or replaced regularly. Other types of devices may also be needed, such as wheelchairs, walkers, canes, or crutches. Modifications may need to be made to a person's home and the vehicles they use to accommodate these devices and ensure they can move around inside or outside of the home and complete daily activities. Ongoing therapy may be needed to ensure that an amputee will be able to use different assistive devices properly.
