New Orleans Amputation Lawyers
Amputations have consequences that last long after the accident that caused them. Injuries requiring amputation often cause physical, occupational and emotional issues for years. Depending on the type of amputation, it may be impossible to return to your previous job or perform daily tasks for yourself and your family.
At Rome, Arata, Baxley & Stelly, LLC, our lawyers provide compassionate, experienced representation to amputation victims and their families. We understand that catastrophic injuries affect the entire family, often requiring family members to take on different roles and duties. Our goal is to recover the damages you need to pay medical bills, replace lost income and benefits, and compensate you for pain and suffering.
The Need For Adequate Compensation
The amputation surgery is the first step in a long series of medical procedures. The injury victim may also need long-term medical care that can include physical and occupational therapy, pain management, cosmetic surgery, and psychological counseling.
If you lost a hand, foot or limb, you may also need compensation to cover the cost of prostheses and other medical equipment, as well as the cost of making your home and vehicles accessible. The lifetime expense of medical treatment, prostheses, and modifications to your house and car can be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Even with health insurance, your out-of-pocket costs will be overwhelming.
Our New Orleans amputation attorneys relentlessly pursue compensation for amputation victims who were injured in accidents such as:
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Maritime accidents
- Longshore and harbor worker accidents
- Railroad accidents
