Amputation Injuries in the Workplace
Find Counsel from Our Atlanta Workers’ Comp Attorneys
The loss of a limb is a very serious injury that happens all too frequently in the workplace. It is common in many industries, but primarily in workplaces such as warehouses, factories, and on construction sites. Workers are exposed to heavy machinery and other equipment that puts them at risk for serious harm.
We understand the sacrifice that workers have to make in order to create a better life for themselves and their family. However, if an accident at work leads to amputation and the forced loss of a limb, you have every right to take legal action on your behalf. Our seasoned Atlanta workers’ comp lawyers are ready to help.
Do I Have a Claim for Compensation?
It is important to realize that not every injury claim, even one as serious as one that involves the loss of a limb or amputation, may have grounds for a claim. The workers’ compensation system is quite rigid, so it is important that you have legal counsel through every phase of your claim so that you know can anticipate any obstacles along the way.
For victims of amputation injuries in the workplace, you should know that these are severe circumstances, and as such, are never taken lightly when evaluating your claim.
It is our hope that your claim can help provide for the following:
- Medical bills and expenses
- Lost wages due to being unable to work
- Future medical treatment
- Prosthetic devices and other future costs
- Physical rehabilitation and therapy
- Emotional distress due to pain and suffering
As Atlanta workers’ comp attorneys, we investigate the circumstances of each case from top to bottom in order to determine who or what was at fault. Many factors could have contributed to your accident—from faulty, defective machinery to human error or negligence, such as if another employee failed to follow the rules, which led to the accident. We strive to get to the bottom of every case to uncover any necessary evidence. We are also thorough in our investigation because we want to ensure you are receiving the full value of the compensation you deserve for your amputation injury.
