We deal with a wide array of injuries here at St. Petersburg Personal Injury Attorneys McQuaid & Douglas. But one of the unique ones that come along every once in a while involves an amputation, whether that be an arm, a leg, a toe, a finger. The amputation cases are very interesting because oftentimes the medical bills associated with those amputations are as big as you would imagine. And insurance companies oftentimes look to medical bills to value the case. But what needs to happen in order to value the case properly is fully document the injuries by fully documenting the injuries related to the amputation. This is going to allow us to argue that the pain and suffering, the mental anguish, the disfigurement component, a measure of damage, which will ultimately increase the value of an amputation case. Likewise, if an amputation causes, uh, one of our clients to lose time from work or be prevented from working altogether.
These are also large measures of damage, but the key to every amputation case as being able to build the sufficient evidence to show and prove why this particular amputation that occurred as a result of the negligence of another has impacted our client significantly and will do so in the future and for the rest of their lives. If you or anyone you know has had an amputation that’s a result of someone else’s negligence, or you think may be a result of someone else’s negligence, contact us immediately so we can talk to you about building a case to help recover the money that you deserve.
