Amputation Of A Limb During Or After An Accident
Catastrophic personal injury victims – often involved in serious auto accidents, construction accidents, or workplace accidents – sometimes require amputations. Sometimes a victim’s fingers, toes, hands, feet, or even an entire limb is so severely damaged that reconstruction is not an option. In other cases, amputations may be required to prevent further damage or to save a person’s life. Regardless of how an amputation injury occurs, the effects of a limb amputation are both physically and emotionally devastating.
In addition to the loss of motor functions and immense psychological trauma amputation injury victims suffer; most of these catastrophic injury victims are unable to return to work, compounding the financial effect of the accident. At the Atlanta, Georgia law office of Mitchell & Shapiro, amputation lawyer Richard C. Mitchell helps victims statewide obtain the fair compensation they need.
