California Personal Injury Lawyers
Amputation Accidents/ Injury
At AlderLaw, we understand the catastrophic effect on a plaintiff's life after the loss of one or more limbs. The emotional scars are often worse than the physical scars. Phantom pain (pain felt as if the limb were still attached) can be excruciating, and is a common symptom among those who suffer limb loss. Presenting the full loss experienced by the victim to a jury – both mental and physical – is required to obtain complete compensation for an amputation injury. Multiple experts are required at trial, including a rehabilitation expert, a physical medicine doctor, an orthopedist, a life care planner, a psychiatrist, a prosthetics expert, and an economist.
We have in-depth experience in analyzing these types of cases and taking them to trial. For example, in December 2008, Mr. Alder received a $7.8 million verdict for a 41 year old woman who lost her right leg slightly above the knee after being struck by an automobile. If you have experienced an amputation injury, we can help you get immediate, appropriate treatment, and can help present your case properly in order to receive full value for your loss.
