Injuries that Cause or Lead to Amputation
When an injury causes damage to blood vessels, body tissue or bone structure that is beyond repair, amputation may be required. Injuries from machinery malfunctions, construction accidents, crushing injuries, and severe burns can all cause extensive enough damage to require amputation. If a person loses all or part of a limb as a result of a workplace accident, they may be able to recover compensation for their loss under Georgia’s workers’ compensation laws.
A successful workers’ compensation claim can reimburse the following losses:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Lost earning potential
- Prescription medication costs
- Rehabilitation expenses
The specific amount of compensation a person is eligible to receive will depend on the extent of their injuries. If you have lost a limb to amputation, our firm’s highly experienced attorneys can help you get a more accurate representation of your eligible compensation and create a legal strategy on your behalf that maximizes your chances of securing the benefits you deserve.
