An amputation has lasting physical, emotional and financial effects on an accident victim. He or she may incur very high medical costs and need extensive physical therapy. The victim may experience considerable pain and suffering, first in the immediate aftermath of the accident, and afterwards due to “phantom pain syndrome.” If the amputation victim works in a manual occupation, he or she may not be able to return to work.
As a victim of negligence, you have the right to seek compensation for your financial losses and suffering. You should speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
