Did You Suffer Disfigurement, Amputation Or Paralysis?
Our firm has experience representing clients suffering from a wide range of injuries, including:
- Amputation: It is not uncommon for serious industrial or heavy machinery accidents to lead to amputation. Typically in these accidents, an appendage is crushed beyond repair and must be amputated. Amputation can also result from medical malpractice, surgical errors or serious motor vehicle accidents.
- Disfigurement: Electrical, chemical or fire burns typically lead to disfigurement. Most often, the skin and underlying tissue are damaged to the point that the appearance is actually changed. This can include severe scarring that might require plastic surgery to correct the skin’s appearance.
- Paralysis: When an individual suffers a severe spinal cord injury, it is common for paralysis to result. Whether that paralysis is complete or incomplete depends largely on the injury. Paralysis can be paraplegia, quadriplegia or hemiplegia.
If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, it is wise to consult with a skilled personal injury lawyer. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your accident, you might be entitled to recover monetary compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
