If you have suffered an amputation or loss of limb due to a workplace accident, you need to speak with a skilled workers’ compensation attorney to know your full rights. While you will be covered under workers’ compensation, there may also be additional claims outside of workers’ compensation.

We take the time to listen to exactly how the accident occurred. Amputations or injuries requiring emergency amputation surgery often are caused by accidents involving heavy machinery and equipment. This can include having a foot amputation or legs amputated. If the machine malfunctioned, was defective or in any other way contributed to the accident, we will determine if the company that produced it is partially responsible. Sometimes there are third-party liability claims, or personal injury claims, that you might be eligible to file.

If there is a claim available, we will begin that process on your behalf. These claims proceed separately from workers’ compensation and will not affect your workers’ compensation outcome.

Almost always, amputation results in the worker having a permanent disability, either partial or total, resulting in him or her not being able to ever work again in that field. We will guide you through the process of filing for permanent disability, making sure that you are provided the benefits you need. In many cases, this also involves a Workers Compensation Insurance (WCI) application, which we can help you successfully file.

Our attorneys handle all of the legal burden, and you can focus on dealing with your injury with the assurance that your case is being skillfully handled.
