Personal Injury

Amputations

Amputations are catastrophic injuries that result in the loss of a limb. They may be caused by a car accident, industrial accident or a failed surgical attempt to save a limb. Amputations are classified as either major (above or below the knee, forearm, above the elbow, etc.), or minor (digits, partial foot, etc.). Regardless of the category, a compassionate Personal Injury lawyer understands that amputations have devastating, long-term effects on the health and wellbeing of the injured person and their family.

An amputation can cause difficulty performing otherwise familiar tasks, making daily routines daunting and potentially rendering you incapable of earning income in the same way. Amputations can also cause physiological effects such as phantom limb (wherein the injured continues to feel the limb and which can cause consistent pain, burning and itching), or heterotropic ossification (wherein a bone begins to grow in the place of scar tissue and can require extensive medical attention, up to and including surgery). All of these potential complications not only have a devastating economic impact on you and your family, they also cause extreme emotional distress. 

If you or a loved one has sustained a major or minor amputation as the result of an accident or someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation for more than just physical injuries. Vishal Sharma will fight for your right to compensation for medical expenses, prosthetics, loss of wages, rehabilitation as well as counseling, if and when it is needed. You and your family should be focusing on a recovery process that helps you avoid the potential emotional and psychological complications that arise from an amputation. While you focus on getting your life back, Vishal Sharma will advocate for the retribution you require to do exactly that.
