Workplace Injury Attorney: Amputation / Permanent Injury Case
Workplace accidents that lead to amputations are some of the most severe and devastating types of injuries. Amputations often lead to permanent disability, and an inability to return one’s former lifestyle. Such injuries can occur due to malfunctioning or improperly maintained equipment, co-employee negligence, lax safety standards, or any number of other reasons.
While state-of-the art prostheses are available and may improve your quality of life, these still do not function as natural as a leg, arm or hand. Extensive physical and occupational therapy will most likely be necessary to help you regain a more normal lifestyle after you have suffered a catastrophic loss of limb. Still, most that have suffered a permanent injury such as an amputation are unable to return to their former jobs or lifestyles.
If your injury was due to the negligence of another such as your employer, or if an insurance company is refusing to adequately compensate your medical expenses, wage loss, and pain and suffering, you should consult a workplace injury lawyer to fully understand your rights for compensation. The workplace injury attorneys at Kirkendall Dwyer LLP can ensure the right parties uphold their obligations to restore your financial circumstances and long-term health.
