Seeking compensation after car crash amputation

On Behalf of | Mar 7, 2024 | Loss Of Limb/Amputation Injuries, Serious Injuries And Wrongful Death

Grappling with an amputation following a car crash is a harsh reality to face. Although recovery is possible, life may never be the same. Such a change can indeed be emotionally, physically and financially painful. Although no money may truly replace what you have lost, pursuing compensation may help relieve your financial burdens.

If your injury was due to someone else’s carelessness, you may be eligible to recover compensation and hold them liable for what happened.

The cost of amputation

Even as you try to focus on recovery, the stress of your finances may not allow you to. With medical bills piling up and work on hold, the pressure to address your expenses can become overwhelming. The cost of hospital stays, surgery, ongoing care and medication that accompany amputation is no joke.

Texas law recognizes the heavy toll of such devastating injuries. Therefore, it provides a legal avenue for victims to pursue financial compensation if someone else’s negligence caused the accident. A personal injury lawsuit may allow you to recover the costs of your medical care, lost wages and other damages such as pain and suffering.

Embrace seeking help

Losing a part of you can shake the very foundation of your being, potentially leading to depression or anxiety. Unfortunately, the burden of health care costs may only add to your stress and discourage your recovery efforts.

If the thought of pursuing compensation seems too much right now, remember that support is available. An experienced personal injury attorney may take the burden of the legal process off your shoulders and take care of matters on your behalf. Surrounding yourself with the right people may make it less difficult for you to prioritize your well-being.
