Helping Amputation Injury Victims Recover Compensation for Loss of Limb Brought on by Another’s Negligent Misconduct
The loss of a limb, an eye or any body part can be a horrifying experience for anyone. For many, amputation and burn injuries are among scariest catastrophic injuries they can imagine. The loss of limb may occur during the accident itself or through surgery after the fact when necessary to save a life or prevent further damage when the limb cannot be saved. Nearly two million people in America live with an amputation, most commonly an above or below-the-knee leg amputation.
