Years of Experience
Have You Suffered From A Loss of Limb In Rhode Island?
It is estimated that 185,000 amputations are performed every year. While many of these amputations are due to disease or a truly unavoidable accident, many are due to the negligence of another person. Car crashes and slips and falls from a great height are both common causes of loss of limb - and causes that could be prevented. If you or a loved one has had to undergo an amputation, chances are you are seeing medical bills pile up and may even be dealing with loss of income. An experienced Providence Loss of Limb Lawyer can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Who is responsible for loss of limb?
Responsibility for loss of a limb depends on many factors. The easiest way to determine who is responsible for an amputation or loss of limb is to determine who is responsible for the incident that caused it. If a reckless driver is distracted by their cell phone and hits a pedestrian, they would likely be found responsible for that person’s injuries. Likewise, if a product malfunctions and causes a loss of limb, there would be a possible product liability case where the product manufacturer or designer may be held responsible.
What types of accidents result in loss of limb?
Loss of limb has a variety of causes. Disease and infection are not at all uncommon reasons someone may need an amputation. Some incidents, however, are caused by the negligence of another person, and in these situations, you may deserve compensation.
- Car Accidents - Car accidents are a very common cause of loss of limb. If a limb is severely crushed or is pinned in a way that cuts off blood flow, it may need to be amputated.
- Motorcycle Accidents - Even if you take every safety precaution while riding a motorcycle, an accident can still cause severe injuries. Loss of limb injuries are all too common in motorcycle accidents since there is nothing protecting your body from being struck by a vehicle.
- Construction Site and Other Workplace Accidents - When operating heavy machinery, accidents can be incredibly harmful, even resulting in loss of limb.
- Product Liability - If a product is not designed or manufactured correctly, it can cause serious injuries, including damage that could result in a necessary amputation.
What are the side effects of amputation?
One of the most common side effects of amputation is “phantom limb” pain, where the amputee would still feel as though they had their full limb and would feel pain in the amputated portion. Other possible side effects include heart problems, deep vein thrombosis, and infection.
Can you sue someone for a loss of limb?
If another person causes you to suffer an amputation or the loss of a limb, either through their negligence or through their intentional actions, they could be held responsible. If someone intentionally or unintentionally causes you to lose a limb, there may be the possibility of taking them to court in order to get compensated for your medical bills and other associated costs.
Is it worth it to hire a lawyer for a loss of limb?
If you or a loved one has suffered an amputation or loss of a limb due to the negligence or actions of someone else, it is always worth it to at least discuss your case with a loss of limb lawyer. An experienced lawyer will be able to assess your case and provide you with advice as to how you should proceed.
