Get Help After a Life-Changing Injury
As with other injuries that cause permanent disability and disfigurement, amputations are catastrophic injuries that change people's lives forever. Many people will be unable to return to their former jobs. Some will be unable to care for themselves or their families. The physical and psychological trauma of an amputation can cause victims to withdraw from family and friends.
When a loss is this great, the injury victim will need considerable compensation to cover medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and related expenses. Workers' compensation will help, but it may not cover all of your losses. At Domnitz & Skemp, S.C., our experienced attorneys can seek compensation from negligent third parties responsible for your injuries.

Full and Fair Compensation Is Essential
Amputations may cause patients a wide range of secondary effects, including wound pain, phantom pain, muscle attrition, tissue or skin death, depression and prosthetic complications. People who suffer traumatic amputations are at risk for potentially fatal complications such as bleeding, shock and infection.
Amputation victims often face a lifetime of pain management and medical treatment. After the amputation surgery, patients typically need long-term rehabilitation, which may include relearning motor skills such as walking or grasping objects. They may also need psychotherapy as they adjust to a different lifestyle.
The expense of specialized medical care and prostheses is significant. You may also need compensation to cover the cost of making your home and vehicles safe and usable. When workers' compensation benefits are not sufficient, damages from negligent third parties can help you and your family move forward.
