Don't Pay a Penny Unless We Win
If you lost an arm or leg in a motor vehicle accident or had to have a limb amputated due to your injuries, your life will change forever. That’s why it’s important that you’re fairly compensated. That way, you will be prepared for the next phase in your life.
Medical professionals classify amputation injuries based on where the injury occurred on a person. In general, amputation injuries are divided into two types – injuries that occur in the upper half of the body and injuries that occur in lower half of the body. Such injuries include:
Upper body amputation injuries primarily involve the hands, arms or fingers. Common upper body amputation injuries include:
- Amputation of entire arm (Arm Shoulder Disarticulation)
- Above-elbow amputation (Transhumeral)
- Forearm amputation (Transradial)
- Amputation of hand below wrist (Metacarpal amputation)
- Removal of hand including the wrist (Wrist disarticulation)
- Amputation of fingers (Digit amputation)
Lower body amputations primarily involve the toes, feet and legs. Some of the most common lower body amputation injuries include:
- Removal of entire leg and hip joint (Hip disarticulation)
- Amputation of leg above knee (Transfemoral amputation)
- Removal of leg including knee (Knee disarticulation)
- Removal of leg below knee (Transtibial amputation)
- Amputation of foot including ankle (Ankle disarticulation)
- Removal of foot below ankle (Foot amputation)
- Removal of toes (Digit amputation)
You Have Rights
If you lost all or part of an arm or leg in a car accident, knowing what to do can be overwhelming. Family or friends might be telling you to do one thing. Insurance companies might be saying something completely different.
We can give you honest, accurate advice you can trust. That’s because your best interests are our best interests. In contrast, insurance companies only care about one thing – paying you as little money as possible.
You often only have one opportunity to obtain all the money you will need for your injury-related expenses for the rest of your life. Make sure you make the most of your opportunity for justice. Contact Tracey & Fox and schedule an appointment in our San Antonio office today.
