LOSS OF LIMB AND CATASTROPHIC INJURY ATTORNEY REPRESENTING CLIENTS IN NORTHEAST OHIO
Suffering the loss or disfigurement of a limb is one of the most difficult experiences a person can go through. For many workers in Ohio, particularly those in manufacturing or labor industries, losing a limb or sustaining any other type of severe injury can also spell the end of a career.
Amputation Accidents Can Affect You Physically, Financially And Psychologically
Although the physical effects of an amputation are obvious, many people who lose a limb also experience psychological issues at some point during their recovery. Ranging from depression to post-traumatic stress disorder, there are numerous types of psychological ailments that may not arise until well after the initial accident. While more difficult to establish, the effects are no less damaging to injured workers and their families and the costs of treatment no less difficult to manage. As experienced workers’ compensation lawyers, we understand the best methods for demonstrating psychological damage and recovering compensation, all while protecting the privacy and dignity of our clients.
In addition to the physical trauma, an amputation brings financial burdens such as:
- Medical bills
- The costs of being fitted for and maintaining a prosthesis
- Physical therapy
- The loss of income if you cannot return to work
With our help, you will not be left holding the bill.
The Loss Of A Limb May Result In Scheduled Loss Compensation
