Unique Nature of Amputation or Loss of Limb Cases in South Florida

While personal injury cases involving an amputation or loss of limbs in an accident are technically governed by the same negligence theory of law that applies in all other personal injury cases, the challenges that arise in loss of limb are unique because these cases tend to represent high dollar values, which means that the insurance adjusters are likely to fight much more aggressively to avoid paying full compensation.  Additional special challenges arise because:

Frequently Asked Questions About Injury Claims Involving Amputation or Loss of Limbs

How do amputation injuries or loss of limbs occur?

The end result of any number of accidents can be your loss of a limb or amputation.  Amputation is generally made necessary when you have suffered such significant injury to a limb that medical professionals are unable to restore the limb without substantial risk to your future health.  Motorcycle accidents and car crashes can lead to crushing injuries to the limbs that eventually require amputation. Similarly, construction site accidents and workplace injuries often result in loss of limbs.  Even a dog bite can lead to a strong infection that threatens your life or health. When a limb is severely injured, the physician may determine that the only way to avoid an infection that could threaten your life is to amputate the limb.

How can you establish that someone else is financially responsible for my medical bills and other expenses if I have suffered a loss of a limb?

Our lawyers will work to identify the party whose negligent actions caused the accident in which you were injured.  This investigation begins with determining what caused your accident. To succeed with a negligence action based on your loss of limbs, we will identify the duty of care that the person who caused the accident owed to you—for example, a duty to drive safely on the roads. We will then use the evidence that we uncover in your case to establish how that driver violated the duty of care—for example, by driving while distracted or under the influence of alcohol.  Next, we must show a causal link between the party’s actions and your injuries to show that the breach of the duty caused the loss of limbs. Finally, we will consult with experts to show the past, current and future damages that the amputation has caused.
