Aggressive Legal Representation for Amputation Injuries throughout Florida

Undergoing an amputation is a completely life-altering event, impacting victims not just physically, but also mentally, financially and emotionally. If you have been involved in an accident that resulted in an amputation of a limb, speak to an experienced Florida personal injury lawyer. Amputation surgeries may include:

  • Leg amputation
  • Foot amputation
  • Arm amputation
  • Toe amputation
  • Finger amputation

Our experienced, compassionate attorneys help injury victims who have suffered an amputation after serious accidents or situations such as the following:

Unsafe Machinery or Products

An amputation may occur when operating heavy machinery, especially if that machinery has not been properly inspected or is not equipped with the proper safeguards. Employers have a duty to doctor consoling a patientprovide proper training and maintain equipment to prevent unnecessary accidents. Working unguarded or without being informed of the proper safety precautions can result in devastating injuries. Heavy machinery may include conveyors, welding tools, power presses, meat grinders and cutters, industrial saws and more. These tools are found in plants, shops and warehouses across the country, but utilizing the proper prevention tactics and and taking the necessary precautions can prevent devastating injuries.

Car and Motorcycle Accidents

For the past four decades, our personal injury attorneys have represented victims who were injured in car or motorcycle accidents through no fault of their own. After an auto or motorcycle accident, catastrophic injuries may occur, resulting in the need to amputate a limb. If you were injured in a car accident, we can help you get the necessary medical treatment, reduce your medical bills, and obtain the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Medical Malpractice

Unfortunately, medical mistakes happen each and every day. The need for an amputation may be the result of a doctor’s or other healthcare worker’s negligence. If you believe you have suffered an amputation due to medical malpractice, it is important to speak to a qualified personal injury attorney in Florida as soon as possible.

The medical bills associated with an amputation can be astronomical. Additionally, artificial limbs can cost tens of thousands of dollars. We understand that no amount of money will undo the pain you’ve endured and the loss you’ve suffered. However, our amputation injury attorneys at The Ruth Law Team can assist you with the following:

  • Holding the responsible party accountable for any negligence or wrongdoing that may have occurred
  • Reducing the expensive medical bills incurred prior to an amputation as well as healthcare costs associated with recovery and treatment after surgery
  • Recovering monetary compensation for your inevitable pain and suffering associated with losing a limb
  • Assisting in recouping lost wages and income potential due to the serious injury

Losing or partially losing an arm, leg, or foot can be an extremely traumatic experience. An amputation increases the occurrence of depression or anxiety. You don’t have to go through this process alone. If you have suffered an amputation or other catastrophic injury in an industrial accident, through a physician’s negligence, or in any other accident, trust The Ruth Law Team to handle your case.
