My left leg was amputated after a truck crashed into my car. What should I know about claims involving amputation before I agree to a settlement?
We are saddened to hear about the serious injury you suffered in a Sarasota truck accident. Unfortunately, the loss of a leg can change your life forever. Losing a part of your body can cause you to suffer physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Not only does an amputation injury require a great amount of time healing due to surgery, time in the hospital, physical therapy, and rehabilitation, but an injury like this can also cause you to spend a great deal of time grieving and trying to heal emotionally.
After losing a limb following a horrific accident, you have the right to pursue a lawsuit against the negligent party for damages. However, because your injury is severe and life-changing, you should not try and settle with the insurance company on your own. Amputees already have a lot to deal with in the weeks and months following the accident. For this reason, you should turn to an experienced accident attorney for help pursuing the maximum financial recovery.
As an amputee, you should be given the highest financial compensation possible because you will always need to rely on someone for help, you may not be able to return to the same job, and you will not be able to drive or participate in the same activities you did before your injury.
