Sustaining an amputation injury can lead to significant physical and emotional setbacks, and individuals need a skilled attorney from the Bendinelli Law Firm to help them get through this.
The costs of an amputation can be tremendous, both in the short and long term. Short-term costs associated with an amputation typically revolve around medical bills, but they carry over into everyday expenses. For example, individuals who sustain any type of amputation injury will most certainly have emergency medical expenses to contend with. Additionally, there will also be costs of follow-up hospital and doctor visits along with possible surgical needs, prescription medications, and medical devices, such as prosthetics.
Long-term costs associated with amputations not only include continued medical complications resulting from the amputation but also expenses like lost wages and losses caused by the inability to perform everyday household services.
Every amputation incident is different, and the lives surrounding amputees vary. However, whether we are talking about a relatively minor amputation or a severe amputation, there will be high costs that individuals should be able to recover compensation for if the amputation was caused by the negligence of another.
At the Bendinelli Law Firm, our goal is to recover economic and non-economic damages on behalf of every amputation client that we assist. This includes recovery of:
There is no set amount of compensation paid to amputation victims in Denver. Rather, there are several factors that an insurance carrier or a personal injury jury will examine when considering a final settlement or jury verdict. Some of these factors include which part of the body sustained the amputation injury, how long it takes a person to recover, the level of any disability after maximum medical recovery, and whether or not there was any shared fault.
Other factors that must be taken into consideration when determining a final settlement include the age of the injury victim as well as their occupation because this will play a major role in the total lifetime costs associated with the injury.
At the Bendinelli Law Firm, we assist individuals who sustain amputation injuries caused by the negligent actions of others. Some of the main causes of amputation injuries that we help clients with include the following:
Our team handles amputation injury incidents ranging from the loss of a finger or toe to the loss of an entire limb. Anytime a person experiences costly expenses due to the negligent actions of another individual or entity, we believe they deserve compensation.
It is important to keep timelines in mind after an amputation occurs. The personal injury statute of limitations in Colorado is two years from the date and incident occurs. This means that amputation victims have two years from the date the amputation occurred to file a lawsuit against the alleged negligent party. Failing to do so will likely result in the individual becoming unable to recover any compensation for their losses.
If there is an insurance carrier involved in the case, which is often what happens in these situations, it is important to understand that the insurance carrier will also have its own reporting deadline involved.
Our team proudly handles amputation injury claims in the Denver area on a contingency fee basis. This means that clients will never worry about upfront or out-of-pocket costs as their case moves forward. Our team handles all of those expenses.
Clients will pay absolutely no legal fees until after we are able to successfully recover compensation for their losses. If our Denver injury attorneys do not win the case, the client will pay no legal fees at all. If we do win, the client will pay a previously agreed-upon percentage of the final settlement or jury verdict. We believe that this is a fair way for individuals to hold at-fault parties accountable for their injuries, regardless of their current financial status.
