You’ve just been in a horrific accident. Time moves at the speed of light as you’re rushed from the scene to the hospital.

With your loved ones gathered around your bedside, your doctor finally delivers the heartbreaking news—they’ll have to amputate.

Suddenly, the panic you felt from the accident has turned into all-consuming fear and rage as you consider how this procedure will change your life forever.

Why did this happen to me?

What am I going to do if I can no longer work?

How will I pay for the medical bills and ongoing treatment?

These are some of the questions that need answering.

Unfortunately, no answers will help you cope with what’s happened. You need justice and an ally who will support you and seek compensation for the pain you’ve experienced due to someone else’s negligence.

That’s where we come in.

Our attorneys at Abogados Centro Legal don’t take negligence lightly. We help injury victims like you get justice for what’s happened to them by getting fair compensation in their cases.

Common Causes of Amputation Injuries

There are two types of amputation injuries: traumatic amputation and surgical amputation.

Traumatic Amputations

Traumatic amputations, which account for 45% of amputations, occur when limbs are torn away from the body.

Traumatic amputation injuries are most often due to high-impact incidents, such as:

Work accidents are often the leading cause of traumatic injuries. Jobs involving heavy machinery—like oil drilling and construction—are at extremely high risk of limb injury and amputation. This highlights the importance of occupational safety and the need to hold employers accountable when the proper safety protocols are not in place

Surgical Amputations

Surgical amputations become necessary when the body part becomes irreparably diseased, infected, or injured.

Common causes of surgical amputations include:

  • Excessive tissue damage/death
  • Frostbite
  • A severe infection that does not get better with antibiotics
  • Nerve damage
  • Crush injuries

No matter the cause of your injury, an experienced attorney can help you fight for justice in your case.

How Much Will I Be Compensated for an Amputation?

Unlike other injuries, the effects of an amputation injury don’t end once you leave the hospital bed. You may still require help with daily functions, experience phantom pain, endure enormous physical pain, and be unable to work.

Every case is different, but for most accidents, you should consider the following for compensation:

  • Surgery
  • Medical expenses and ongoing care
  • Physical therapy
  • Prosthetic devices
  • Medications
  • Medical devices
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Pain and suffering*
  • Emotional trauma*
  • Loss of consortium*
  • Loss of enjoyment of life*

*Not applicable to Workers’ Compensation cases

In personal injury cases, compensation is most influenced by your injuries’ severity and medical costs. So, naturally, when you suffer a catastrophic injury like amputation, it may result in a higher payout than other types of injuries.

Additionally, based on the nature of the accident, you may be entitled to punitive damages if the at-fault acted with gross negligence.

At Abogados Centro Legal, our attorneys have recovered millions for injury victims in Birmingham.

Here’s an example of our most recent accomplishments:

  • $3 million settlement for a defective product
  • $990,000 for front-end collision

Bet on our Birmingham amputation lawyers when you need justice in your case.

Alabama Liability Laws: Who's Responsible?

In a personal injury case, you have the right to recover compensation from the individual or entity responsible for your injury.

For instance, if your arm was amputated due to unsafe conditions at work, you may have a personal injury lawsuit under workers’ compensation. Whereas in a truck accident, you may even be able to bring a third-party claim against the other driver.

It’s important to note that in Alabama, the state follows contributory negligence rules, meaning that if you’re found to even be partially negligent for the accident, you may be unable to claim compensation. The only exception is this is a worker’s compensation case. Negligence on the part of the plaintiff is NOT a bar to recovery in a workers’ compensation case.

By hiring a personal injury lawyer, you can protect yourself and claim what’s rightfully yours.
