The loss of a limb or part of a limb is an injury that will have permanent effects on an individual’s life, both physically and emotionally. It adds challenges to everyday activities, can potentially damage one’s earning capacity or career prospects, impacts their ability to function normally during everyday life and creates significant emotional turmoil.
At Pullano & Siporin, we understand that a complete physical recovery is not possible after an amputation, even with modern advances in prosthetics and such technologies. As such, we are completely dedicated to earning our amputation injury clients the maximum compensation they can recover in their case.
Our legal team makes every client a priority, and spends significant time researching your case and putting you in the best possible position to succeed. You deserve this personal and caring service, and our attorneys are here to be your unyielding advocates in a difficult time in your life.
Amputation may occur as a result of the following types of injuries:
Our team reviews every detail of your case, including medical records, safety inspections and financial documents in addition to the evidence obtained at the scene of the accident. We carefully research the responsibilities of all parties involved to see whether there was a breach of duty of care that would make a party liable.
The short answer is “maybe”. Doctors that do not treat an injury appropriately can be liable for the resulting harm. However, suing a doctor is often not necessary or even in your best interest. Under the law, the initial wrongdoer (i.e. the driver of the car not paying attention or the truck driver that was too tired) is legally responsible for any medical errors of those professionals trying to treat the original injuries. As a result, it is often not necessary to file a medical negligence case against subsequent treating doctors in those types of cases. Doing so will be costly and often may result in your recovering less money.
Our experienced team is completely committed to upholding the trust you have placed in our firm. We work tirelessly to protect your rights and assist you in recovering damages for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We will spend significant time with you at your kitchen table understanding exactly how your amputation injury is impacting your daily life from a physical and emotional standpoint. Your case is always a top priority for us, and we do not rest until we’ve produced the best result possible for you.
