Amputation & Dismemberment
Amputations are a devastating result of many serious and catastrophic accidents. These injuries leave a permanent mark on a person not only physically, but by impacting them emotionally and psychologically for the rest of one’s life. In addition, amputations most often come with heavy long-term financial burdens. If you or a loved one has suffered an amputation or dismemberment due to an accident, you deserve to be compensated.
