Riverside Amputation Attorney
Experienced Amputation Lawyers Serving Riverside, California
You or a loved one can be faced with the tragic position of amputation if a major accident necessitates drastic measures. In addition to the potential need for costly rehabilitation, prosthetics, and other medical care, this type of treatment can make it impossible to lead a regular life. The Riverside amputation attorneys at the Aitken * Aitken * Cohn Law Firm extend their warmest best wishes for a full and rapid recovery to anybody who has had to have a finger, arm, leg, or other body part amputated due to an injury. The legal services of our Riverside personal injury attorneys can ensure that those parties uphold their obligations to improve your financial situation and long-term health if that amputation injury was in any way caused by the negligence of others or if an insurance company does not want to appropriately compensate your expense and loss.
The amputation attorneys at our firm have the knowledge and experience you want and need since amputation injuries are among the most difficult. While traumatic injuries and medical misconduct are the two most frequent causes of amputations, amputations brought on by someone else’s fault can fall under several categories of personal injury law:
- Product liability – For instance, a subpar drug or defective product that prevents blood flow may need an amputation.
- For instance, after a car accident, a limb may be damaged beyond repair—it cannot be salvaged.
- Surgical errors include, but are not limited to, removing the incorrect body part during surgery or carelessly cutting off the blood supply to a body portion.
- Medical malpractice, such as failing to catch an infection, is one example.
Types of Claims
By filing for a claim, an accident victim may seek compensation for the damages they have incurred as a result of their amputation. The particulars of each victim’s situation will determine the kind of claim that can be made. For situations involving amputation, the following sorts of claims are frequently submitted:
Personal Injury: A person may file a personal injury lawsuit against the party at fault if they sustain an amputation as a result of an accident that was caused by another party.
Medical Malpractice: Amputations can result from a variety of hospital or doctor mistakes. A negligent doctor could give a false diagnosis that causes an amputation due to malignancy or disease. A surgeon could amputate the incorrect patient in a needless surgery. A patient’s infection might not be treated promptly, which could result in entirely avoidable limb loss. In all of these situations, as well as others, there is cause for a medical malpractice claim.
Workers’ Compensation: Regardless of whether they were at fault for the accident, all employees are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for any injuries sustained while doing their duties (such as amputations from machinery). During their recuperation, they can be eligible for medical insurance and disability benefits.
