Amputation Injuries in the South Bay
South Bay Personal Injury Lawyers for Amputation Cases
At The Layfield Law Firm, APC, we fight for those who have suffered injuries due to the negligence of others. We work to help our clients recover financial compensation for their losses and to secure justice for the wrongs they have suffered. One of the most serious types of catastrophic injury we see is amputation. Whether it is a case of traumatic amputation, in which the limb is severed from the body by the force and violence of an accident, or if the limb must be surgically amputated after it has been crushed, mangled or burned, the accident victim will never again be able to return to his or her normal life. Such an injury will usually require an extended stay in the hospital, and the amputee will normally have to use a prosthesis or perhaps a wheelchair in order to compensate for the loss of mobility.
Amputation Cases in Hawthorne, Torrance, El Segundo, and Redondo Beach
We recognize what a devastating impact an amputation injury can have on every aspect of your life, and we want to help you take legal action to claim the compensation you deserve. If your accident was caused by another person, a South Bay personal injury lawyer from our team may be able to help you recover an insurance settlement or jury verdict to pay for all of your medical expenses and lost income, as well as noneconomic damages for your pain, suffering and emotional distress.
This is common in car accidents, motorcycle accidents and other types of traffic collisions, as well as in cases involving defective products which trap or crush a limb, or burn injury cases in which the limb has been charred and must be removed to prevent infection. Alternatively, if the amputation occurred in a work-related accident, you are most likely entitled to recover benefits through workers' compensation. Either way, we urge you to take the first step now by contacting us for a free case evaluation.
