Compensation for an Amputation Injury

The compensation that you may receive for an amputation injury may reflect the following:

  • Emergency medical expenses to stabilize your injury and minimize harm
  • Follow-up and long-term medical care
  • Physical therapy, the use of prosthetics, and care for adjusting to use, including back pain and joint problems
  • Complications including stump or residual limb infection, additional trauma, pain, and wounds
  • Occupational therapy to maximize independence and lifestyle
  • Mental health injuries, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and other harms
  • Lost wages and damage to career
  • Property damage that may have occurred in the accident
  • Related expenses like the cost of travel, mobility assistance devices, and home modifications
  • Costs for household services the injured person may have performed for the family or that they now need assistance with
  • Disfigurement, scars
  • Changes in lifestyle and activity
  • Physical pain and suffering, emotional anguish

An amputation impacts a person physically, emotionally, and financially. At a time when you are in pain and grieving, you are wondering how to pay medical bills. The bills are likely extensive. When an amputation impacts your life drastically, you need and deserve compensation that reflects what you have lost.

As Boca Raton amputation injury lawyers, we understand our mission. Our team works diligently to prove your right to compensation and pursue it through legal channels. We file legal cases and insurance claims. We take cases to trial and pursue fair settlements. It is our goal to work for truth, transparency, and justice. Ultimately, that means you receive the compensation that you deserve under Florida law.

A victim suffering from an amputation is likely to have other injuries as well. All your economic and non-economic losses available under the law can be claimed. Our lawyers ensure that your claim is complete.

Do I have a case for compensation?

If another person or party has legal fault for the injuries leading to your amputation, you may receive financial compensation. The most common basis is negligence, which is a lack of ordinary or reasonable care.

A defendant doesn’t have to purposefully inflict harm to have legal liability. It is sufficient to be negligent or not as careful as a reasonable person would have been in the situation. Creating or allowing a dangerous condition to occur that results in an accident can be sufficient grounds. Other grounds for legal liability in Boca Raton may be strict liability, recklessness, or intentional harm.

Causes of Amputation That Can Be Grounds for Compensation

An amputation may occur in several different ways. Many of these causes can form the foundation of a lawsuit for compensation, including:

  • Car accidents
  • Slip and fall, falls from an elevated height
  • Animal attacks
  • Blunt trauma
  • Workplace accidents
  • Medical negligence
  • Disease and neuropathy
  • Gunshot wounds
  • Assault and battery

Accidental or intentional harm can directly damage the limb to the point that it must be amputated. It may also be the result of infection or disease that results in tissue death and the need for amputation.

Our lawyers investigate the situation and determine who may have legal fault for what occurred. Then, we pursue all avenues for compensation.

5 star review

I usually never leave reviews, good or bad, but for this instance, I most definitely had to. David and Marnie were both AMAZING. They made me feel comfortable and confident in their ability to resolve my case. I was walking in a crosswalk and was hit by a vehicle resulting in having to go to the hospital. I sustained injuries from this that I am still in the midst of dealing with. I contacted the firm and was able to speak with them via zoom immediately. I decided to sign with them on a Monday evening (3 days after my accident) and by Tuesday afternoon (the very next day) my case was settled. And settled for the very max that was able to be obtained. I attribute a lot of this to not only the expertise of the firm, but the relationships that Marnie has built with her experience working as a lawyer within a major insurance provider, which just so happened to be the insurance provider involved in my case. This is incredibly atypical for a case to be settled this quickly, especially with this outcome. It has been two weeks to the day today that my accident has happened and my case has already been resolved. I am blessed and more than happy that I decided to hire this firm. Every case is different, but I can bet that this firm will handle your case with care and the utmost professionalism. I pray I never have to go through a situation like this again, but if I did, I wouldn’t hesitate to call this law firm. Thank you guys very much!!


5 star review

I highly recommend Eltringham Law Group to anyone seeking legal advice after having a car accident. David Eltringham and his entire staff gave me the personal attention I needed during a very difficult and painful time. David took the extra steps needed to ensure that I received the medical care I needed as well as the financial compensation I deserved. Harold Torres, Paralegal updated me every step of the way. Thank you Eltringham Law Group!
