Denton County Amputation Injury Lawyers
Fighting for Full & Fair Compensation in Texas Personal Injury Claims
Losing a limb is a lifechanging event that has serious consequences for victims and their families. Amputation can result from accidents such as traffic crashes involving cars, motorcycles, commercial trucks, bicycles, and pedestrians. Amputations can also follow from workplace accidents, injuries in the home, from certain diseases, criminal attacks, and medical malpractice. In many cases, they are the result of someone else’s negligence, wrongdoing, or malice. An example of this would be a drunk driver causing a motor vehicle accident which resulted in the other driver’s loss of a limb. In such cases where another party was at fault or contributed to the accident, an injury claim can be filed to recover rightful and fair compensation for the victim.

Amputation Injury Trauma & Consequences
Loss of a body part can occur in the accident itself or amputation may be required later in a hospital to save the victim’s life. Either way, losing a limb has a drastic effect on someone’s life, first as a trauma and later in serious medical treatment and post-amputation care. The victim may require multiple surgeries followed by the need for prosthetics. Extensive physical therapy will then generally follow in which the victim must learn to adjust to life without the natural limb and with a prosthetic.
Those who suffer amputation face a lifetime of disfigurement. They may not be able to return to their former jobs or careers. They also may struggle with psychological trauma regarding their condition for months, years, or for the rest of their lives. Because of the difficulty of making a physical and psychological adjustment, these victims may require counseling and other forms of support to help them. Their homes and cars may require renovations to accommodate their condition and help restore them to an independent lifestyle.
For anyone who has had an amputation, the quality of life will forever be changed. When this has occurred due a negligent party or parties, full and fair compensation must be pursued on behalf of the amputee to ensure that all medical, psychological, and physical needs are available. The losses and damages required can include those for hospitalization, post-operative care, physical or occupational therapy, loss of income, loss of future earning capacity, pain and suffering, psychological counseling, and the cost of a prosthetic limb.
