Kansas City Amputation Injury Attorneys
An amputation injury can disrupt a person’s life in multiple ways. Losing a limb can have a devastating impact on everyday life—personal, professional, and financial. Amputation can leave a person with emotional injuries that may never heal. Financially, treatment for an amputation injury can reach nearly half a million dollars during a person’s lifetime, while their ability to earn income suddenly stops.
Some amputees may never be able to return to their previous employment.

How Do Amputation Injuries Occur?
Amputations can occur in a variety of ways:
• Vehicular accidents (car, truck, motorcycle, etc.)
• Workplace and industrial accidents
• Ladder/scaffolding collapses and falls from height
• Defective products (household appliances, heavy equipment, vehicles, etc.)
• Fires and explosions
• Public transport accidents
• Violent animal attacks
• Severe burns
• Crush injuries
• Medical malpractice
Severe injuries may require surgical amputations as part of treatment. This can occur in an accident in which the body part is so severely damaged that it can’t be saved or removed to save the life of the patient. Surgical amputation may also be necessary for an infection or other conditions such as gangrene.
For example, in a medical setting, a preventable amputation could have occurred due to medical malpractice (surgeon removed the wrong limb, doctor was mistaken in recommending amputation, or it was caused by an untreated infection due to neglect). Other situations that often result in a preventable amputation include traumatic incidents, such as serious automobile accidents, workplace or construction site accidents, industrial accidents, and so forth.
Following a preventable amputation, a person’s life changes dramatically. One challenge is learning to adapt and live without the missing limb and go forward in life with prosthetics or even a wheelchair. Additionally, many people experience anxiety, depression, and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) concurrently. Popham Law’s experienced amputation injury attorneys can help you recover compensation after your accident.
Why You Need A Kansas City Amputation Injury Attorney
Your first step after an accident is to get immediate medical attention and begin treatment for the injury. An amputation injury may be accompanied by other unseen injuries, such as soft tissue injuries or a Traumatic Brain Injury. Getting immediate care also documents your amputation injury so that you can seek compensation. With this information, as well as all your treatment records, we can build a case against the responsible parties.
Popham Law’s personal injury attorneys can help you collect compensation for:
• Hospital, therapy, and any other expenses
• Prosthetics and other medical equipment such as wheelchairs
• Therapeutic expenses
• Counseling and therapy for coping with the loss of a limb
• Wages lost during recovery
• Future lost income
• Pain and suffering
• Other related damages
The expenses will continue to accumulate while you’re recovering and continue for the rest of your life. You’ll need some way to pay all these expenses, especially if you can’t work anymore.
When you work with our Kansas City amputation attorneys, you’ll have strong representation by our experienced personal injury attorneys. We will work with you to ensure that your case is handled correctly, and you receive the maximum compensation available.
