Loss of Limb

If you have lost a limb due to a workplace accident, you may have many concerns and questions. How long will it take to recover? How will I pay my bills? Am I eligible for permanent disability? Can I even return to work?

Losing a limb is an experience that will change someone's life forever. Not only does losing a limb affect someone's physical limitations, but it also has massive psychological effects that are long lasting after the accident has passed.

There are many jobs that involve the use of sharp objects, heavy machinery, or special equipment. These occupations carry the risk of an accidental loss of limb.

The loss of a limb requires an intricate rehabilitation process that can seriously affect the way a person operates at work. The loss of a limb could even prevent you from doing your job, resulting in you having to quit.

As the victim, you are entitled to seek legal compensation from the at-fault party involved in the accident that required amputation.
