As many as two million people in the United States live their lives while missing one (or more) of their limbs. And while there are a variety of reasons that may be, particularly from diseases like cancer and diabetes, one contributing factor is physical trauma (catastrophic injury). When you lose a limb as a result of an accident, that injury tends to be called a “catastrophic injury”, and it can be a difficult one to face and accept. This is especially true when the loss came about as the result of someone else’s negligence or error.
Victims suffering a lost limb might find themselves struggling financially, physically, and emotionally. They often have to first face the tragic loss of their limb and accept that their lives have been altered permanently. This can create more than a few issues they must work through psychologically, not to mention the physical recovery and rehabilitation they face and the financial insecurity that comes along with those expenses. On average, medical expenses for an amputee can add up more than $600,000.
Because most individuals with a lost limb have such high medical costs, particularly if they need to hire round-the-clock assistance or undergo multiple procedures, it is important to understand your rights and what kind of recovery you might be able to receive. And if your limb was lost due to negligence or error, then you might have recourse to seek compensation.
