Bay Area attorneys assisting injury victims with amputations
At the Bay Area Law Office of Michael and Michelle Mandel, we provide careful and efficient representation for victims who suffer from amputation injuries caused by accidents resulting from the negligence of others. Amputation injuries are painful and require significant medical treatment, and they often affect victims’ ability to earn income and participate in the daily life activities they enjoyed prior to an accident. Our attorneys understand the full impact amputations have on the lives of our clients, and we work hard to obtain just compensation.
Amputation is the removal of all or part of a limb or extremity such as an arm, a leg, a foot, a hand, a toe or a finger during a serious accident or through surgery. Amputation of the leg because of injury or disease is the most common amputation surgery. Our highly skilled and qualified personal injury lawyers can help accident victims recover compensation for amputation and related injuries, including:
Amputations in accidents and medical negligence
Accidental amputation is frequently a result of motor vehicle accidents, including car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian accidents, as well as MUNI bus accidents. Industrial accidents and construction site accidents are also common causes of amputations or injuries requiring surgical amputation. In some cases, amputation injuries may be caused by negligent doctors or surgeons and may include unnecessary amputation or amputation of the wrong limb. Our attorneys have more than 50 years’ combined experience in personal injury cases involving all types of negligence that result in amputation and related injuries. We use our extensive skills to help clients obtain the compensation they deserve.
Medical treatment for amputation
Amputation injuries generally require immediate and continuing medical care. In some cases of complete or partial amputation, the severed part may be reattached if it is treated with care. Proper emergency care, surgery, rehabilitation and prosthetics often help accident victims by minimizing the loss of use as well as loss of earning capacity or enjoyment of life activities. As an injury law firm with significant expertise in all types of accidents that result in amputations, we help clients maximize their recovery for immediate and long-term medical care and rehabilitation, including the following needs:
