Types of Cases We Handle
No limb amputation case is too minor or complex for the attorneys at LaMarca Law Group, P.C.. We handle a variety of limb amputation cases that include:
- Upper limb amputations – Cases involving upper limb amputations often consist of the complete or partial loss of a finger or thumb which can make completing everyday tasks difficult. The ability to grasp objects, operate machinery, open packages, dial phones, and type can be severely impaired. We also handle cases involving the partial or full amputation of one or both hands, lower and upper arms, and shoulder joints. Loss of an upper limb, whether it’s the removal of a fingertip or entire arm, requires a tough attorney to fight for you.
- Lower limb amputations – The loss of toes can leave an accident victim unable to balance correctly, making walking and standing difficult. The partial and complete loss of feet and portions of the lower and upper leg and thigh can leave an injury victim unable to walk without the assistance of prosthetics and crutches. The loss of both legs can cause a victim to be a wheelchair user for life.
When your amputation results from an accident at your workplace, you will pursue benefits from your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. You cannot sue your employer for negligence if your accident occurred at work, regardless of fault. However, this does mean that if your injury occurred by complete accident, or even if you contributed to your own injuries, you should still be able to recover compensation. Amputations can result from a wide variety of workplace incidents, including:
- Vehicle accidents
- Getting tangled in or crushed by machinery
- Machinery malfunction
These are just a few of the incidents that can lead to an amputation. As long as your amputation was a direct result of an injury you sustained at work or while carrying out work-related tasks (such as delivering goods or visiting clients), then you should be eligible for compensation.
