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.
