Traumatic Amputations

When amputation occurs as the result of a negligent employer or third party, the accident victim is left with a lot of emotional and physical pain and a permanent sense of loss. With the unfortunate spread of superbugs, any cut or laceration from an accident can result in an infection such as MERSA, staph infections and gangrene.

Antibiotics are proving less effective than they used to be at controlling dangerous infections. After seeking treatment at Minnesota hospitals and clinics, injury victims can contract these serious infections, resulting in multiple successive operations to try to cut away the infected flesh and tissues.

At Meshbesher Law Firm, we have helped injury victims recover monetary damages, including workers’ compensation benefits for lost limbs, in cases where they or a family member experienced amputation as the result of negligence or carelessness. While this does not take away the physical or emotional pain, this can help with the financial burden stemming from an accident they had no part in causing.

Determining Fault

It is important to be able to determine fault by analyzing the facts of the accident that caused your amputation. We accomplish this by using professional investigators, expert witnesses and accident recreation specialists.

Parties frequently liable in amputation accidents include:

  • Employers
  • Construction companies
  • Property owners
  • Manufacturers of defective products
  • Defendant vehicle owner and vehicle driver
  • An at-fault doctor, another medical professional or a medical facility

Of course, the list can go on and on depending upon the type of injury, and there are times in which more than one party can be held responsible.

Available Compensation

We can seek a number of compensation types for you in your case. You can seek damages for the following and any other expenses considered relevant to your particular case:

  • Medical expenses
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of earning capacity and lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Embarrassment
  • Disability
  • Lost quality of life

Our attorneys will seek out maximum compensation by conducting our own investigation regarding fault, damages and liability. That way you do not have to worry about the financial aspect of what your injuries have caused. Instead, you can focus on getting better and having the best quality of life possible.
