What’s Your Case Worth?
Amputation injuries are permanent injuries that will likely result in lifelong disability. An amputation, by definition, is the loss of a body part, usually a finger, hand, or arm, or a toe, foot, or leg. Traumatic amputation injuries occur when the limb is wholly or partially severed in an accident. Amputation can also be surgically performed when a limb cannot be saved due to serious injuries. Victims of traumatic amputation are at risk for serious complications, including bleeding, infection, shock, and death.
Illinois amputation injury lawyers at Willens Law Offices represent individuals and their families who have suffered amputation injuries resulting from all forms of negligence, including:
Construction accidents, industrial accidents and other types of work accidents can cause amputations and dismemberment injuries. Amputation accidents can be the result of improper machinery maintenance, improper employee training, unsafe working conditions, or lack of safety guards or protective equipment.
Proper training, safety practices and supervision can prevent amputation accidents and disfigurement injuries. If you have lost a limb or been disfigured in an accident at work, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation from your employer and possibly the manufacturer and/or distributor of the machine or piece of equipment at issue.
Amputations are expensive, both immediately after the accident and possibly for the rest of the victim’s life. Medical bills will likely be extensive. If you are unable to work due to a traumatic amputation injury, you may be eligible for compensation for lost wages and loss of future earning capacity. To maximize your compensation, we work with highly qualified experts to determine your future medical and financial needs as a result of your amputation injury.
Amputation injuries can cause emotional suffering, disability and a loss of a normal life. Amputations, like other life-changing tragedies, cause psychological injuries. Disfigurement may decrease self-confidence and self esteem. Coping with and adjusting to an amputation injury can be difficult. Posttraumatic stress disorder, anxiety, grief and depression are all associated psychological injuries of amputations.
