Pursuing Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice Claims
People and companies that do not take enough care for the safety of others can end up causing serious injuries, including injuries that require amputation of accident victims' limbs. The following are some of the major types of injuries that can cause the loss of a limb:
- Auto accidents: A sudden impact can cause a car or other vehicle to buckle, crushing or severing an arm or leg to the extent where amputation of the limb is necessary.
- Construction site accidents: Heavy machinery accidents and falls can also do serious damage to the limbs of construction workers and other people on construction sites.
- Hospitalization-related infections: A serious enough infection may require a limb to be amputated in order to avoid the spread of disease throughout the body.
If you have been injured in any of these circumstances or any other incident caused by someone else's negligence, our attorneys and nurses will carefully document your personal injury or malpractice claim with the help of cutting-edge technology and credible experts.
