Amputation/Loss of Use

If You Have Lost a Limb in an Accident, We Can Help.

Albany Personal Injury & Amputation Attorneys

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.

The loss of a limb as the result of a careless accident, however, is devastating. Because of another person or party's negligence, the life of the accident victim — now an amputee — is changed forever.

At Hacker Murphy, LLP, we offer compassionate, aggressive representation to individuals who have suffered amputation injuries as the result of a careless accident. Call (866) 919-9031 or contact us online to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss your options for compensation.

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.
