Coping with an Amputation Resulting from a Car Accident Can Take a Lifetime to Heal
Car accidents happen every day and thankfully the vast majority of them are minor. Others are fatal. And then there are those that are serious but not fatal. These are accidents in which the survivors may feel grateful to be alive while also struggling to deal with the long-term implications. This is especially true in accidents that involve amputations.
There is no question that an amputation accident can change a person’s life forever. They are one of the most traumatic injuries a person can survive. If this has happened to you, then you know there is no amount of financial compensation that can take back what happened to you. That said, getting fair compensation from the at-fault party can help you get closure, can hold them accountable, and can help you pay for necessary medical treatments and lifestyle modifications.

The Long-Term Financial Cost of Amputations
In almost all cases, amputations are done to save the patient’s life. They can come along with severe bleeding, serious damage to surrounding tissue, and severe pain. Whether the amputation was the tip of a person’s finger or several limbs, a person who suffers this operation will generally expect a long hospital stay, numerous surgeries, ongoing therapy, physical rehabilitation, and complex, long, and extensive recovery.
If you or a loved one is dealing with the consequences of another person’s recklessness or negligence, then they should be the one to face the financial burden of the amputation. Note that you cannot simply get a settlement to cover your past medical costs – there are likely to be long-term costs associated with the amputation as well. We will work with medical and financial experts to determine a reasonable settlement that includes estimated future medical costs associated with the accident.
