The loss of an arm, leg or another body part due to an accident can be a traumatic event. If you underwent amputation surgery due to a catastrophic injury caused by someone else’s reckless or negligent behavior, it’s critical that you take strong legal action to protect your rights.

What are common causes of amputation accidents?
Injuries or accidents that result in amputation surgery can cover a wide range, including:
- Construction accidents, including accidents involving power tools and heavy machinery. Falling from scaffolding or being struck by an object can also result in a limb being surgically amputated.
- Motor vehicle accidents, including crashes (often at high speed) which result in someone’s leg or arm being severely injured.
- Oil rig accidents, including explosions or fires. When this happens, someone’s limb may be injured beyond repair.
- Manufacturing accidents, which often involve machinery or equipment found in many factories, especially ones with assembly lines.
Wherever or however your accident took place, it’s important to understand your legal rights. That’s why it’s critical that you talk to an attorney who understands Texas’ legal system and who can fight for the financial compensation you rightfully deserve.
Should I file a claim or a lawsuit?
Depending on the nature of your accident, you may be able to file an injury claim or a lawsuit to obtain the financial compensation you deserve for your injury-related expenses. An attorney can help you decide which approach makes the most sense based on your specific circumstances.
One common exception is if your injury took place at work. In many cases, you cannot sue your employer. You may be able to do so in certain specific circumstances, however, including if they knowingly violated state or federal safety rules or if your employer opted out of workers’ compensation.
In addition, you can file a third-party lawsuit against another company if they were responsible for your workplace injury. These cases are common at construction sites, where several different companies may be working at the same place at the same time.
How much is my case worth?
The value of your settlement claim or your lawsuit verdict should cover all your amputation-related expenses. As a result, emergency medical expenses are only part of what you should be compensated for if you lost a limb. Other expenses include:
- Surgical procedures
- Hospital bills
- Follow-up medical care
- Prosthetic limbs
- Replacement income during your recovery
- Lost future income if you cannot return to work or must work in a reduced capacity
- Pain and suffering in certain circumstances
These expenses and many more can quickly add up to tens of thousands or millions of dollars. Insurance companies for the at-fault party know this. That’s why some of them may try to do everything they can to reduce or deny your claim. That’s not right. That’s why it’s critical that you have a dedicated legal team on your side, vigorously fighting for your rights.
