Amputations Or Lost Limbs Claims Lawyer
Losing any part of your body in an amputation accident can be traumatic and life-changing. When the accident is caused by a defective or dangerous product, it can be even more devastating. Manufacturers and retailers have a responsibility to ensure that products are safe to use and do not pose any unexpected risks. If you have lost a limb or appendage due to an unsafe or defective product, you may be eligible to seek compensation for your injury.
When a limb or appendage is damaged beyond repair or severed in an accident, everything changes for the victim. Even the loss of a finger can require physical therapy and relearning how to do certain tasks without the lost digit. Larger appendage amputations like an arm, hand or leg caused by an accident can come at a large cost to the victim. On top of medical and therapy bills, there may be lost income, reduced function and ongoing pain or discomfort. If the amputation was caused by a defective product, these costs may be covered by the manufacturer or seller of the product.
Defective Product Accidents that Cause Limb Damage
The most common type of accident that results in a crushed limb or amputation is a vehicle wreck. A person thrown from a vehicle during an accident because their seatbelt failed or the door latch was dysfunctional may suffer a lost limb. Motorcycle accidents are another common cause of severed or damaged appendages, which may be caused by defective components on a vehicle. Other possible types of defective product amputation accidents include:
- Electrocution/electrical burns
- Agricultural equipment accidents
- Fireworks or explosives
- Household tools
If a defective product was the catalyst that caused an amputation accident in your family, you may have the right to sue for financial damages. Contact our team at Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law to schedule a free consultation to discuss your claim.
