Connecticut Amputation Lawyers

Eagan, Donohue, Van Dyke & Falsey, LLP’s Connecticut amputation lawyers have handled numerous wrongful death matters and injury claims involving amputations.

Accidents occur every day within large cities, many involving large motor vehicles or other operating machinery. However, we never begin our day anticipating an accident, and many accidents can have traumatic lifelong effects. Accidents leading to amputations are some of the most severe and traumatic accidents a person can face, and the consequences last the rest of your life. If you or a loved one have been injured in an amputation accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

Amputation Accidents

Amputation accidents unfortunately often occur in the workplace in which employees work with dangerous equipment. Accidents are often the result of improperly maintained equipment or inexperience. If an injury received from a machine at work or as the result of a car accident is severe enough, the body part may have to be amputated. Sometimes the accident is so severe that an amputation is the result of the accident itself. Motor vehicle accidents also often cause severe injuries leading to amputations which are often the cause of negligent or distracted driving.

Despite the severity of these accidents and subsequent injuries, many go unreported to official federal statistics, and a new study from Michigan State University indicated that the federal statistics are off by more than 50% in the incidence of work accident amputations. As a result, amputation accidents are often not given the attention by national accident organizations as other severe injuries are afforded. However, amputation injuries unfortunately occur on a daily basis in a number of circumstances and should be recognized for the serious consequences which the accidents lead to.

Amputations are often the result of either traumatic accidents or surgical procedures. These are often not the result of the actions of the person receiving the injuries, but are often due to negligence on the part of another person. The negligent party can be held liable for any medical costs associated with the amputation injury, including medical expenses, lost wages, future earnings, and pain and suffering.
