WORKPLACE AMPUTATION INJURY LAWYER

An amputation injury is not only a serious medical event but also a horrible psychological blow to most accident victims. Recovery is likely to require significant amounts of medical treatment and physical therapy. Finding the right balance of medications, disability accommodations and mental adjustment to an amputation can be a challenge for doctors and patient alike. Adjusting to life after an amputation often involves adjusting to living with a prosthesis, which will likely need replacing every 10 years or so.

Amputation injury victims also report ongoing neurological pain, including phantom pains that seem to come from a limb that is no longer there. Sometimes one of the hardest aspects of life after an amputation is that the remaining limb works overtime to compensate for lack of the missing body part, resulting in therapeutic needs for the healthy limb, as well.

On-The-Job Amputation Injuries

An amputation injury on the job in South Carolina is compensable through a workers’ compensation claim. State law specifies amounts of compensation available for “total or partial loss of, or loss of use of, a member, organ, or part of the body.” An arm or leg may not actually be amputated, but if it is no longer functional after an injury, the injury qualifies for this category of workers’ compensation. Ryan Montgomery, Attorney at Law, LLC, is a recognized source of helpful information and advocacy for injured workers.
