Compensation for Your Limb Loss
When you file a personal injury claim, the first items that come to mind when seeking damages are likely your medical bills. For amputations, medical costs can include surgeries, hospital stays, and doctor visits, but these are probably not all the losses you have suffered or will suffer.
You must also consider future medical bills and various other damages that will result from your limb loss. Have you thought about whether you will be able to return to work or whether you will need caregiving assistance? And what about a prosthetic limb? These are all damages you can seek in an Orange County amputation injury claim.
Here is a list of items your attorney may consider adding to your list of damages:
- The cost of caregiving assistance
- The expense of medical aids or prosthetics
- Medical bills and future medical expenses
- The pain and suffering you’ve experienced
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of your accident
- Diminished quality of life
