Loss of limb or amputation injuries dramatically effect the lives of victims and their families.
Loss of limb injuries are usually the result of catastrophic accidents such as industrial accidents, motor vehicle accidents or failed surgeries. Loss of limb victims not only suffer loss of income, but also suffer emotional and psychological pain and suffering. Common income losses include loss of wages during recovery, loss of opportunity due to injuries sustained, and the costs associated with medical expenses and therapy. Common emotional and psychological issues associated with loss of limb injuries include, but are not limited to:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD);
- Phantom limb sensations;
- Depression and anxiety; and
- Stump pain.
Regardless of the injuries sustained, we are committed to helping you obtain compensation for your claim. We will obtain the necessary resources to make sure we understand the nature of your loss/injuries. This includes working with qualified medical experts such as psychologists and counsellors to assist in your claim. Such claims must be brought within two years of the date of the accident.
