Serving Kansas City, Independence, Blue Springs & Lee’s Summit
Amputation and dismemberment is a removal of a body part, typically the result of a severe trauma. Without doubt, these are life-changing injuries that demand highly competent legal representation and include partial or full:
- Loss of a leg
- Loss of foot, including the toes
- Loss of an arm, including the hand/fingers
Severe trauma causing dismemberment or the need for amputation commonly results from motor vehicle crashes, work-related accidents, or a dangerous condition. An amputation or dismemberment of a body part involves lifelong physical, emotional, and financial consequences. Although amputee victims may eventually adjust to the loss of a limb, they will forever be deprived of the ability to perform many physical activities and functions. This is emotionally traumatic and likely result in periods of sadness, depression, distress, and mental anguish.
In addition to physical challenges and emotional suffering, amputees also face financial burdens. They often require costly prosthetic limbs, wheelchairs, and physical therapy for the rest of their lives.
In this regard, it is your attorney’s responsibility to make sure the evidence is comprehensive, including highly trained experts in the fields of psychology, rehabilitation (medical/vocational), and life care.
