Loss of Limb
The loss of a hand, foot, arm, leg, or other body part is a catastrophic event. This loss can result from many causes, such as a workplace accident, a farm accident, a motorcycle accident, or a medical condition.
How Jacobs & Jacobs Handles Loss of Limb Cases
When you suffer the loss of a limb there are many consequences such as:
- Surgery and recuperation
- Risk of infection
- "Phantom" pains that seem to reside where the missing body part should be
- Nerve damage
- Chronic pain
- Need for physical therapy and occupational therapy
- Need for prosthetic limbs
We have a special interest in the needs of amputation injury victims. One of our own lawyers, Kevin Ryder (now retired), first came to us as a client after a catastrophic work-related accident that resulted in amputations. He came to fully appreciate what an attorney could do for an accident victim . Kevin later went on to get a law degree and joined Jacobs & Jacobs in our fight to obtain compensation for people who have suffered loss of limb and other serious injuries.
Kevin's personal experience adds value and insight to our law firm's years of experience representing amputation injury victims. We know the importance of considering costs of anticipated new models of prosthetic devices which engineers are currently working to perfect. We work to include such costs in well-documented compensation proposals that we bring before insurance claims adjusters, judges and juries.
If you or a loved one has suffered the loss of a limb, please call Jacobs & Jacobs at 203-777-2300. We fight for the results you deserve.
