Amputation And Disfigurement Claims In Southern California
There are some injuries for which recovery can only go so far. If you have lost a limb or been seriously disfigured, a full recovery will probably be impossible. Your life will never be the same as it was before your accident. Additionally, you may have ongoing medical needs that could last a lifetime. If you have had to endure an amputation or disfigurement from an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
At the San Diego personal injury law firm of Martinez & Schill LLP, we understand how physically and psychologically traumatizing amputation and disfigurement can be and the lifelong limitations they can cause. Our San Diego personal injury attorneys aggressively seek full compensation for our injured clients.
Compensation For Amputations And Disfigurement
The loss of a limb, whether it is an arm, leg, finger or toe, is a traumatic and life-changing injury. The pain of the initial injury is severe, and subsequent medical interventions can also be extremely painful. Often, amputees struggle with phantom pain from lost limbs for years after an amputation. In addition to enduring this painful injury, amputees typically also must go through a long rehabilitation process and may require psychological treatment as well. Our attorneys understand the full impact that losing a limb has on a person’s life. We carefully evaluate all the damages that our clients have suffered as we pursue maximum compensation. You may be entitled to damages for:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
- Rehabilitation costs
- Prosthetic limbs
- Lost wages
- Permanent disability
If you have been permanently disfigured, you may also have lifelong consequences to endure. Beyond the physical pain of the trauma, there may also be a significant psychological impact, particularly if you have a facial disfigurement. You may also have to undergo a series of corrective surgeries. Our Riverside personal injury attorneys understand the importance of planning for all possible future medical needs when pursuing compensation, and we strive to ensure that you will have what you need to pay all your past, present and future medical expenses.
