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.
