Amputation is loss on a scale most individuals will never face in their lifetimes. Those that do must brave a new set of circumstances and challenges on a daily basis. The Jacksonville personal injury lawyers of Farah & Farah are dedicated to helping collect damages on the behalf of those who have lost a limb(s) due to negligence and neglect on the part of another careless individual or entity. Since 1979, we have provided understanding and comprehensive representation to amputees who sought justice in a court of law for their suffering.

If you or a loved one is a recent amputee and believe it to be the fault of someone’s reckless behavior, please give us a call at 904-263-4610. You will receive a free case consultation and evaluation, as well as extensive overview of your potential legal options.

What Kind of Accidents Lead to Amputation?

According to the Amputee Coalition, there are approximately 2 million people working and living with limb loss in America today. Over 180,000 amputations happen every day – with almost half of those coming as a result of severe trauma. Despite the extensive statistics, amputation still remains a rare procedure, which is almost always associated with severe car accidents and industrial machinery failure. It is estimated these accidents cost insurance agencies nationwide, both public and private, approximately 12 billion dollars in adjustments. Frequently, limb loss accompanies the following accidents:

  • Automotive, motorcycle, tractor-trailer collision that results in a roll-over situation or catastrophic damage
  • Injury resulting from work materials and machinery; this includes bench saws, conveyor belts, hydraulic press machines, slicers, farm equipment, heavy ropes and other assorted fixed or mobile industrial tools.
  • Electric shock from overhead power lines, breaker systems, outdoor lighting and underground wiring
  • Explosive damage sustained as a result of fireworks handling, faulty gun manufacturing, gas line maintenance

What Kind of Compensation Can I Expect?

When considering a personal injury lawsuit, particularly one that involves such a grievous injury, like an amputation, it is important to look at the economic and non-economic damages involved with your injury. Economic damages are those that have created a physical cost that you can account for, such as:

  • Initial surgery, emergency care and treatment of damaged limb
  • Extended hospital care with inpatient treatment
  • Prosthetic limbs; arms, legs, hands, etc
  • Physical and occupational therapy
  • Personal trainer, nurse or doctor

On the other hand, non-economic damages attempt to quantify those "costs" that have a considerable effect on your life, even if they are intangible. Those can range from:

  • Mental and emotional health counseling
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of wages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

While entering into litigation against the at-fault party may not return those physical losses you have suffered, it can ease the present difficulties you may be experiencing both financially and emotionally. At Farah & Farah, we pride ourselves on having secured millions in compensation for our injured clients and holding those responsible to the highest letter of the law. If you have any questions or wish to speak with a Jacksonville amputation attorney concerning an amputation injury, just call 904-263-4610. And remember – we don’t get paid until we win.
