A lost or severed limb or body part is one of the most traumatic injuries a person can experience. Many workplace accidents result in an employee losing an arm, leg, hand, foot, finger, toe, or other body part due to the negligence of another. The Texas injury attorneys at Duke Burleson & Associates provide years of courtroom experience to those families and individuals who have suffered an amputation.
Types of accidents or events that may result in an amputation include:
- Car or truck accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Burn injuries
- Medical accidents
- Birth injuries
- Falling objects
An amputation can be extremely painful and, in some cases, fatal. The recovery process is not limited to just medical care. An amputee’s life is forever changed. The victim must learn how to function on a day-to-day basis without the use of a limb or body part. This can include learning how to walk with one leg, write with one’s opposite hand, or eat without one’s hands. An amputee must effectively learn how to do things all over again.
If you or a loved one has suffered an amputation, the attorneys at Duke Burleson & Associates may be able to recover damages on your behalf. This may include compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, inability to work, and lost income. Let the personal injury attorneys at Duke Burleson & Associates get to work for you and your family.
