We Need to Prove Your Case
Although limb loss is a catastrophic injury, you cannot count on the insurance company to provide you with compensation for all of your losses. To get the largest settlement possible, we need to prove that someone else caused your crash and amputation. If another party is more at fault than you were, it is possible to seek compensation.
Not taking anything for granted, we investigate our clients’ accidents to gather evidence that can be used in court to prove their claims:
- Speaking with witnesses
- Reviewing video footage and photographs
- Speaking with your doctor
- Reading accident reports
- Deposing the other party and asking them questions under oath
Once we have gathered enough evidence, we can make a strong argument for why you deserve compensation.
If You Are Denied Medical Care
In addition to emergency and ongoing medical care, you may need rehabilitative services, a prosthetic limb, numerous procedures, medication, and more. If you are denied the medical care you need by the insurance company, let us know. We can negotiate on your behalf while your trial is pending.
You Deserve Money for Lifestyle Changes
We will seek compensation to pay for your accident-related medical bills, including future ones. That’s only the beginning, however, since you also deserve to be paid for how your life has changed. This includes getting money for any financial and non-economic damages caused by the crash and amputation:
- Caregivers to assist you while you recover and adjust
- Household help if your limb loss prevents you from cleaning up, doing yard work, caring for the kids, and so on
- Quality of life losses due to being unable to engage in activities you once enjoyed
- Remodeling your home to make it handicap or disability friendly
You should also receive money for any wage losses you have suffered or are likely to suffer in the future.
Understanding Punitive Damages
An accident severe enough to cause a loss of limb often involves egregious negligence or reckless conduct. If a jury finds the other party to have been particularly negligent or to have purposefully exposed you to harm—such as through drunk driving—they may award punitive damages. This money isn’t tied to a direct cost but is instead awarded to you in order to punish the negligent party.
