Motorcycle accidents generally lead to significant injuries. In some cases, damage to limbs or nerves may be so severe that amputation is required. Not only does the loss of a limb dramatically affect your life, but your finances may take a big hit once all the medical bills start coming in.
After you’ve been involved in an accident where an amputation was the result, you’ll want to be sure that the responsible parties are held accountable and you’re fully compensated. The best way to do that is to contact a Baton Rouge motorcycle accident amputation lawyer from Spencer Calahan Injury Lawyers.
Loss of Limb and the Effect on Your Life
Losing an arm or leg in a motorcycle crash is inevitably going to have a major impact on your quality of life. You’ll almost certainly be unable to take part in many of the activities that you previously did, and special equipment will likely be required, especially if a leg was amputated. In some cases, you may even need to renovate your home.
Your ability to work will also be impacted. If your job involved any kind of physical labor, then the amputation may make it impossible for you to continue in your current career. This can be particularly devastating at a time when you’re faced with mountains of incoming medical bills and other expenses related to adjusting to the limb loss.
These are all damages that you deserve to be compensated for, and an attorney from our firm will make certain that every expense and every way that your life has been impacted by the amputation is accounted for in your final compensation.
Compensation for a Motorcycle Wreck
This is probably the most important step to you, especially when it comes down to handling all of the bills associated with your amputation and motorcycle crash. Compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and personal property damage are important, but other compensation is often overlooked by the insurance companies.
An amputation does more than affect your finances. The result of an amputation can mean a decrease in quality of life and more stress than you’ve ever dealt with. Your attorney understands that and will fight for compensation for how your life has been impacted:
Pain and suffering
Loss of consortium
Lost enjoyment of life
While you aren’t guaranteed these awards, we understand how an amputation can affect your overall life, and we will fight for you. To understand your claim better and what may be involved, contact our office today.
