Decatur, IL Injury Attorney For Accidents Resulting in Amputation

Schuyler County amputation attorney for loss of arms, legs, fingers, toes

Lawyers for Loss of Limb Injuries in Macon County, Champaign County, Peoria County, and McLean County

There are a wide variety of situations that can lead to catastrophic injuries, and in some of the worst cases, a victim may need to have limbs or other parts of their body amputated. These types of injuries will have a permanent effect on a person's well-being, and they can result in disabilities that affect a victim's ability to earn an income and provide for themselves and their family. Fortunately, by working with an experienced personal injury lawyer, people who have experienced these types of injuries can seek financial compensation from those who were responsible.

The attorneys of Kanoski Bresney have over 40 years of experience representing injury victims, and we have obtained verdicts and settlements for our clients totaling more than $400 million. We strive to provide respect, response, and results to those who have been injured by others' negligence, and we are ready to fight for you and make sure you are repaid for all of the ways your injury has affected your life.

Pursuing Compensation for Amputation Injuries

There are many different types of cases in which victims may experience injuries that lead to the loss of limbs. Car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, or pedestrian accidents can cause a person's arms or legs to be crushed or severed. Dog bites can lead to severed fingers, or wounds may be so severe that amputation of limbs may be necessary. Nursing home negligence can lead to injuries such as bed sores that result in the amputation of a resident's arms or legs. Workers on farms or construction sites may suffer amputation following injuries that occur because of equipment malfunctions or falling objects.

Victims of injuries that result in amputation can seek financial compensation for all of the ways the loss of a limb or body part has affected their life, as well as any expenses related to the injury. They should be fully repaid for the costs of medical treatment they receive, including emergency medical care and surgery to amputate limbs and address other health issues related to their injury. They should also receive compensation for any other medical costs, including ongoing physical therapy, prosthetics, assistive devices such as wheelchairs, and modifications to their home and vehicles.

Because an amputation can result in permanent disability, victims should be repaid for the income they have lost. In addition to the loss of pay while recovering from the injury, a person can also receive payments to address impairment to their future earning ability. These payments should cover the income a person would have been able to earn if they had not been injured, as well as other benefits they would have received, such as health insurance or retirement plans.

A victim's compensation should also address the way their injury has affected their quality of life. They should receive compensation for their pain and suffering, including physical pain and emotional trauma. Payments may cover the costs of psychological treatment for a victim and their family members, as well as the loss of enjoyment of life and limitations on a person's ability to care for their spouse or children.
