Suffered a Loss of Limb?
Western New York Amputation Attorneys
Losing a limb can be a devastating shock that forever changes the victim’s life. The emotional trauma increases if the amputation happens unexpectedly due to injuries suffered in an accident. If the accident was caused by someone else, the victim’s mental anguish is worse still. Aside from physical and psychological effects, the amputation also brings financial issues with the cost of surgery, hospital, long-term home care, prosthetic limb, physical therapy, and counseling to adjust to life without the severed limb. Not to mention loss of income from missed work and a career change if the injury prevents returning to the same occupation.
If you or a loved one have experienced such a loss, the personal injury lawyers at Nicholas, Perot, Smith, Bernhardt & Zosh want you to know there’s hope. We can help you prepare a case against those responsible for the amputation to receive compensation for what you’ve suffered. Our team of experienced lawyers will give you the proper legal representation you need to get through this difficult time.
Amputations are a danger on the job for people who work in construction, around heavy equipment or industrial jobs around machinery. An on-the-job accident is usually resolved through workers’ compensation. If the injury happened due to medical negligence, it may be a medical malpractice case. Otherwise, an amputation accident is typically pursued as a personal injury case.
Why Work with Us?
Our serious injury lawyers understand the nuances involved in these cases from years of helping people in Western New York face similar hardships. We work with medical professionals and experts to build a case for your claim against those at fault, regardless of the type of case.
There’s a limit to the amount of medical expenses covered by workers’ compensation insurance. Serious injuries, such as amputations with lifetime consequences, often require more than workers’ comp insurance will provide. In such situations, our legal team may be able to file a separate personal injury lawsuit. If the amputation injury was caused by malfunctioning or defective equipment, the case may be product liability and we can pursue the manufacturer.

We have the resources and knowledge to prepare a case demanding compensation for your emotional and mental anguish. Call us today to set an appointment with one of our lawyers.
