Arlington Heights Amputation Injury Attorneys

DuPage County Amputated Limb Lawyers

Lawyers in Rolling Meadows Help Injury Victims

When you think about the types of injuries one might sustain in a car crash, slip and fall, workplace accident, or other types of accidents, what comes to mind? If you are like most people, you might think about broken bones, bumps, bruises, whiplash, and possibly head trauma, among a number of other injuries. Regardless of the type of injuries you have considered, there is a good chance that you pictured the injured victim in your mind a whole person-one who is not missing any parts of his or her body. For some accident victims, however, this is not always the reality.

At Newland & Newland, LLP, we understand that serious accidents can result in the amputation of limbs and other extremities. Amputation is one of the most serious and debilitating types of injury that a person could possibly suffer. Losing a limb is not only painful but it will also have a profound effect on the victim's quality of life. If you or someone you love has been forced to undergo an amputation as the result of any type of accident, our experienced attorneys can help you explore your options for collecting compensation.

Trusted Cook County Counsel for Catastrophic Injuries

There are many different situations that could necessitate the amputation of a limb. An arm or a leg that is crushed in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident, for example, might need to be amputated in order to save the life of the victim. Heavy machinery, sharp tools, and other dangerous equipment at work could easily sever a limb, digit, or extremity. While a severed limb or digit can sometimes be reattached by skilled medical professionals, such procedures are not always successful, and amputation may be necessary.

It is even possible for negligence on the part of a medical professional to make amputation necessary. A misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a particular condition could allow the condition to progress to the point where an amputation is needed to save the patient's life.

Collecting Compensation for Amputations in Cook County

When you have experienced an amputation as the result of another party's actions or negligence, you have the right under Illinois law to collect compensation for the losses you have experienced. When an amputation is involved, such losses can be quite substantial. Medical expenses alone for an amputation patient can exceed hundreds of thousands of dollars over the patient's lifetime. Prosthetic devices, home and vehicle modifications, and other necessary costs can add up quickly. The loss of a limb may make it much more difficult for you to work and to provide for your family. You are also likely to experience a great deal of pain and suffering, as well as a reduced quality of life-all of which must be considered when seeking compensation.
