What Will a Loss of Limb Attorney Do for Your Case?
Anytime a person loses their limb due to the careless or negligent actions of someone else, there may be various types of compensation they are entitled to. This can include both economic and non-economic compensation, such as the following:
Complete coverage of medical bills associated with the injury
The cost of physical therapy or rehabilitation
Coverage of prescription medications
The cost of medical devices, including prosthetics
General household out-of-pocket expenses
Pain and suffering damages
Loss of quality of life damages
In some instances, punitive damages may be available to victims. Punitive damages are typically reserved for situations where the at-fault party was grossly negligent or when the loss of limb occurred because of the intentional actions of the other party.
Most Common Ways That Loss of Limb Cases Arise
There are various ways that a person could lose a limb due to the careless or negligent actions of others. At The O’Sullivan Law Firm, our personal injury attorneys regularly help clients who have lost a limb due to:
Commercial truck accidents
Construction site accidents
Slip and fall incidents from heights
Defective medical devices
Defective prescription drugs
Undiagnosed or untreated medical conditions
Severe burn injuries
Time Limit to File a Claim
Victims who lose a limb due to the negligence of others need to know that they have a limited amount of time to file these claims. The Colorado personal injury statute of limitations is two years from the date an injury occurs. This means that the victim needs to file their claim within a two-year window or they will lose the ability to recover any compensation for their losses.
Please understand that this timeline has very little to do with any deadlines put in place by insurance carriers. Sometimes, insurance carriers require that an injury be reported within a day or two after the incident occurs, and failing to do so could jeopardize the claim.
