Car Accidents And Amputation Injuries
Unlike a simple soft tissue injury resulting from a car accident, an amputation injury generally means a lifetime of disability, medical treatment and financial burden. The loss of any body part is difficult to accept. When that loss was preventable and caused by another’s negligence behind the wheel, it can be even more devastating.
At Williams, Walsh & O'Connor, LLC, in North Haven, we stand up for the rights of people in Connecticut who have suffered serious injuries in car and truck accidents. Our attorneys will take the time to learn how the loss has affected your daily life and ability to earn a living, so we understand the full extent of your amputation injury and can accurately communicate your loss to the insurance company and, if necessary, a jury.
Identifying Driver Negligence
Vehicle accidents are commonly caused by distracted drivers who simply are not paying attention to the road in front of them. Some are busy talking on their cellphones; others are texting while driving. Other times, accidents are caused by motorists who are driving while intoxicated and unable to safely operate a vehicle.
When you retain our services, we will launch a thorough investigation into the cause of your accident. We will gather and review all evidence to determine who caused the collision and build a solid case to hold that individual responsible for your amputation injury.
Common Amputation Injuries
The most frequent types of amputation involve:
- Amputation at the elbow
- Amputation at the hip
- Amputation at the knee
Not only are amputation injuries life-altering, but they are also expensive. As your Connecticut personal injury lawyers, we will consult with specialists such as life-care planners and economists to determine past and future costs of your injury. We will work to ensure costs for a prosthesis, physical therapy and other factors are taken into consideration. Our goal is to obtain maximum compensation on your behalf to ease the financial hardship posed by your new situation.
