Amputation and Paralysis
A catastrophic injury or affliction occurs without warning and can be a shock to many. Managing a catastrophic injury is a very complex matter and the victim will have to be provided with the expertise of an entire team of various health professionals such as consultants, physicians, therapists, nurses and counselors. Amputation of a limb that results from a work-related accident leaves physical wounds as well as unseen emotional scars.
Recovery from an amputation can also involve an unending stream of challenges, such as intense physical therapy and multiple surgeries. An experienced Southern California Amputation and Paralysis Attorney from Golden & Timbol knows that it can take several months or sometimes years to regain confidence after an amputation. It also takes a very long time to regain the ability to do things that most people would take for granted.
Whenever a person loses an arm or a leg in Southern California, he/ she has to learn how to walk as well a maneuver all over again. Our experienced attorneys know that amputations result in prohibitively high medical bills, psychological and physical rehabilitation fees and loss of income. In addition to this, the victim also has to deal with a lifetime of paying for wheelchairs, prosthetic limbs, and costly transportation and living accommodations. In most cases, the victims might be entitled to certain compensation for the injuries that they have suffered through their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance.
Paralysis can affect both legs and the trunk (paraplegia) or all four limbs and the trunk (quadriplegia). Workers’ compensation benefits may not be enough to cover all of your lost wages, particularly after a spinal injury. If a negligent third party was responsible for the accident that caused your injury, it may be possible to recover additional compensation, including pain and suffering damages.
