The loss of a finger, hand, foot, or limb as a medical procedure is never easy, but often times warranted to improve an individual's health.

Seeking Maximum Compensation for Accident Victims
At Hacker Murphy, LLP, we represent people who have suffered the loss of a limb in an accident caused by another person. An amputation can have a devastating financial impact on the amputee and his or her family. Accordingly, we seek compensation to cover a wide range of expenses:
- Medical expenses — Medical bills for the initial injury can be extremely high. However, the long-term care for amputees can also be high, depending on the nature of the injury. Long-term care can include rehabilitation and physical therapy.
- Prosthetic limbs — Some amputees are able to use artificial limbs. New prosthetic technology is always emerging. If you have lost a limb in a negligent accident, we will seek compensation to allow you to use the latest assistive products.
- Loss of livelihood — Many amputees are unable to continue their jobs after the injury. If your ability to work is affected, we will assess the long-term financial losses that result.
Many amputees experience phantom limb pain, or the feeling of pain, tingling, or other sensations in the amputated limb.

Although your injury may seem overwhelming now, we are here to help you make the greatest recovery possible. We have seen numerous cases in which an amputee has been able to return to a normal, happy life following the accident. Our hope is that you, too, can live as full a life as possible.
