Amputation Due to an Accident
Accidents happen all over the country each day either on the roads, at the workplace, at construction sites, in the home and one the field of play. Some of these accidents will result in serious bodily injury or even death. Accidents that don’t result in death might result in serious bodily injury that includes amputation of a limb because of injuries sustained.
If a limb needs to be amputated following an accident your life will change forever. You may not be able to work again, which means you can apply for Social Security disability insurance benefits, and you will worry about how you will provide for your family. Amputation due to an accident can include the amputation of an arm, a leg, a hand, a foot, a toe or a finger. Not all amputations due to an accident are the right answer to solving the problem either. Sometimes a doctor will amputate a limb by mistake, known as medical malpractice, and you will have a whole other legal matter on your hands if this happens.
