Loss of Limbs & Amputation Injuries Attorney in Los Angeles, CA

The Law Offices of Jacob Emrani: Los Angeles based personal injury attorneys serving all of California

The loss of a limb due to accidents and injuries, known as traumatic amputation, is life changing if not fatal. Amputation can involve a leg, foot, toe, arm, hand, or finger. In addition to lifelong physical impairments, it can have mental, emotional, and financial impacts. The Law Offices of Jacob Emrani is your Los Angeles amputation injury attorney; we can hold those who caused your injury accountable and get maximum compensation.

According to The American Journal of Surgery, the most common cause of amputation is blunt trauma, which accounted for 83% of the 8,910 amputees tracked in the study. Motor vehicle accidents cause the most amputations, but accidents with factory, farm, and power tools frequently lead to limb loss as well. In the United States, there are about 2 million amputees, according to estimates by the Amputee Coalition of America; every year, there are about 185,000 new lower extremity amputations.

Complete Amputation vs. Partial Amputation

If a body part is completely severed, it’s said to be a complete amputation. Reattaching a severed limb or digit is complex, but possible if proper care is taken for the severed body part. A partial amputation is one in which some soft tissue remains attached after the accident. This doesn’t necessarily make it easier to reattach the limb/digit. If the injury is severe, surgical amputation may be necessary.

Possible Complications

Our amputation accident attorney may look at complications resulting from your accident and subsequent amputation in calculating a settlement to pursue. Potential complications may include severe bleeding. Infection and shock may also occur. The long-term consequences of an amputation must be considered as well, which include significant physical limitations and emotional and psychological effects. Prosthetics and other adaptive devices may be required for the rest of a person’s life.

Common Causes of Loss of Limb & Amputation Injuries

Motor Vehicle Accidents : Limbs can be crushed in car, motorcycle, train, and even boat crashes, or severed by sharp pieces of metal.
Heavy Machinery: Mishaps with industrial machinery may occur if it’s not safeguarded, inspected, or employees aren’t properly trained.
Defective Products :Defects in a machine, part, or automotive component can cause severe injuries; a manufacturer, installer, or employer may be held liable.
Medical Malpractice: A doctor’s, surgeon’s, or other healthcare worker’s negligence can lead to an amputation, and astronomical medical bills.

Electric shock, burns, explosions, gunshots, industrial cable/wire mishaps, and door accidents can cause loss of limbs as well.

Medical Expenses/Cost of Amputation

Amputations are classified as catastrophic injuries per California personal injury law. The costs are difficult to calculate. Hospital stays may range from weeks to months. Amputees often require inpatient rehab and physical therapy, which may extend for years past the initial recovery period. Beyond medical care, there is the cost of in-home modifications and vehicle upgrades. All the while, loss of income is problematic because the individual may miss extended periods of work, if they ever return to their job at all.

In the past year, I

In the past year, I was involved in two personal injury accidents. Auto and Pedestrian. At first I went to different law firm and signed up. After couple weeks in, that law firm rushed me through the process , did nothing and took $7600 of my settlement money and want me to settled under six months. I didn’t follow through and found out Jacob Emrani law firm with more experiences. This firm helped me to settled with larger settlements. Jacob Emrani and his team support me every steps of the way. For those involved in personal injuries, please understand that you must have patience for best results and Jacob and his team is your go to firm. Small law firm can’t do what this team does. Average people without any knowledges of auto accident, insurance carriers, and/or medical experiences are too hastily assumed that everything happens with a snap of a finger or I want it now. Well, it doesn’t. Rome wasn’t built in a day and so as this process. Court case takes even longer. People with negative reviews is because they don’t understand the system and all they do is blames and complaint or fired the firm that working hard for them behind close doors. When you quit and go to another firm, all you do is waste more time, waste more of your settlement reward to another firm in fees and costs. ALl you have to do is be patience and Jacob team will takes care of you. These case managers handles couple of dozen of case everyday and all the time. These attorney work their butts off on the phone and in court fight for you to get each client the best settlement. One case are not with the same result to next case. So when people calls into the office all day long for status, demands for answer, or angry because not moving with the speed the person want does not mean case managers or attorneys ignoring you. Email them, fastest response time. They only moves as fast as insurance carriers, medicals providers, and hospitals. These insurance companies are not just going to cough up money to you just because you got hit. They need time to investigate, this process takes time, case managers only goes as fast as these people move, they fights against these adjusters for you to get the best settlement for your case. So, please be PATIENCE!!! and give them time to work on your case. DON”T QUIT. Don’t go to another firm just because you have no patience and all you do is throw your settlement money away to another attorney and your case literally start from scratch, more time waste. Jacob Emrani, his attorneys, case managers, and the all the staffs are a great team and with tremendous experiences. Put your trust in them and be patience. Final Results. $$$$$$$.
