Amputations

Illinois and Missouri Amputation and Personal Injury Lawyers

After an accident that results in the loss of an arm, leg or other part of the body, the physical and emotional pain can be difficult to handle and the recovery process is one that may never be fully complete.

Adapting to the amputation of a body part is a gradual process but there are some activities, including some occupations, which may no longer be possible as the result of the accident, even if a prosthesis can be fitted to partially replace the missing body part. A victim's home and automobile may have to be modified or replaced to allow the person to live as independently as possible. Financially, it is important to pursue compensation that you need for treatment, prosthetics, and other expenses related to the amputation, including past and future lost wages.
