New York City Amputation Attorneys

Our Personal Injury Lawyers Are Dedicated To Your Case

Serious injuries can have a lifetime effect. The lawyers at the Perecman Law Film are ready to fight on your behalf to attain any and all compensation that you deserve. 

Whether an amputation is caused by an accident, disease, an infection, or any other reason, the loss of a body part will permanently alter a victim’s life. Aside from the permanent disfigurement caused by an amputation, an amputee can expect to have a lifetime of related care and medical services including the fabrication and fitting of a prosthesis with regular servicing and replacement, physical therapy and rehabilitation and occupational therapy in order to regain independence and functioning in activities of daily living. All of this new and unfamiliar treatment and care will certainly impact a victim’s quality of life.

The attorneys at the Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. specialize in catastrophic injury cases and have been successfully representing clients that have suffered traumatic amputations for more than 40 years. Whether the amputation was sustained in a construction accident, motor vehicle incident, train accident, or as a consequence of medical malpractice, the New York City attorneys in the Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. can represent you in your claim. We understand that amputations are life-altering (and even life threatening) procedures, and we believe that it is our duty to help victims fight for the compensation they deserve and need in order to continue a stable life.

What Can Cause an Amputation?

There are a variety of reasons why an amputation can occur, ranging from disease to traumatic injury. Some of the most common reasons for amputations that might require you to seek legal consultation include:

  • Trauma: If a limb has been severely damaged by an injury, amputation may be required. There are a variety of injuries that could necessitate an amputation, including the limb being severely crushed, blast injuries caused by explosive devices, severe burns, or if the limb is torn or cut off.
  • Malpractice: There are many instances when medical conditions can be misdiagnosed or improperly managed that might ultimately cause a victim to suffer an amputation. Whether it be improper management of diabetes, the failure to diagnose cancer or some other medical negligence, the breach of the standard of care could cause a patient/victim to suffer an eventual amputation.

While these aren’t the only reasons why an amputation may be necessary, they are some of the most common reasons why an amputee might seek legal consultation. If you, or someone you know, sustained an amputation for these reasons you may be able to file a claim.
