Loss of Limb Compensation

Philadelphia Amputation Injury Attorneys

When it comes to personal injury or workers’ compensation claims, loss of limb may be physical or functional. This means that you could receive compensation for a lost limb whether it was traumatically/surgically amputated or if you lost use of the limb due to paralysis/nerve damage. In either scenario, you have truly lost use of the limb and may experience a number of challenges in attempting to return to work or perform normal, day-to-day activities.

The recovery of maximum compensation is crucial in a case involving amputation or loss of limb. Unfortunately, the insurance company may try to offer an unfairly low settlement, delay payment, or even deny your claim altogether. Our Philadelphia amputation injury attorneys are here to protect your interests and help you get the money you deserve. We have over 35 years of collective experience to apply to your claim, and we take a compassionate, one-on-one approach that can bring you much comfort in these difficult times.

To find out how we can help you, call (215) 608-2183 for a free case evaluation.

How Much Compensation Do You Get?

The amount of compensation that you can receive for losing a limb will certainly depend on the circumstances surrounding the case. If you go through workers’ compensation for a workplace accident, you may be entitled to around $390,000 for an amputated arm or leg. You can get compensated an average of $300,000 for the loss of a hand or foot.

If you are pursuing a personal injury claim for the loss of a limb against a negligent part, how much compensation you are able to recover will depend on numerous factors. These include:

  • If the lost arm was on the dominant side of the body
  • What kind of impact this loss has on your ability to carry out your current job
  • Your age
  • Whether a prosthetic limb will be able to be fitted and functionable

If you lost a limb in a car accident from a drunk driver or an otherwise negligent driver, you will need assistance paying for the costs associated with the case, especially from the hospital stays, surgeries, and rehabilitation expenses. Our legal team can help you pursue compensation from an amputation for all damages, including:

  • Physical
  • Mental
  • Emotional

Causes of Amputation/Loss of Limb

Many different types of accidents and physical trauma can cause amputation or loss of use of a limb. It is important to understand exactly what occurred, as this will reveal what individual or company may be held liable (legally responsible) for the payment of compensation that can cover your medical care, lost earnings, pain, suffering, assistive devices, prosthetics, physical therapy, and more.
