Nueces County Loss of Limb Attorneys for Catastrophic Injury Victims in Robstown and Kingsville, TX

Of the different types of personal injuries that can affect someone, few are as serious as the loss of a limb. An amputation can drastically limit a person's mobility, and this can make it difficult or impossible to perform daily tasks without assistance. Following a catastrophic injury that led to an amputation, a person will need extensive medical care, and they may also need to make multiple changes to their life and home to ensure that they will be able to meet their ongoing needs. The costs related to this type of injury can add up quickly, and they can last for the rest of a person's life. Fortunately, victims may be able to receive financial compensation from the person or parties who were responsible for their injuries.

To obtain compensation for a serious injury, a victim can work with an attorney who has experience in this area and who has successfully represented clients in personal injury claims and lawsuits. The Edwards Law Firm brings over 100 years of combined experience to these types of cases, and we believe in advocating on behalf of our clients and holding the responsible parties liable for the damages they have caused. If you have suffered an amputation injury, we will not rest until you receive the financial resources you need to address all of the ways you and your family have been affected.

Causes of Amputation Injuries

There are multiple situations where a person may suffer severe injuries to their limbs that may result in amputation, including:

  • Car wrecks and truck accidents - In a side-impact or T-bone collision, a person's arms or legs may be seriously injured by the force of the impact with another vehicle. A head-on collision may cause a person's legs to become crushed by the vehicle's dashboard. When these injuries cause severe damage, amputation of limbs may be necessary.
  • Workplace injuries - Work-related accidents can damage a worker's limbs to the point where amputation may be necessary. For example, construction workers may be injured by falling parts or equipment, and arms or legs may be crushed by falling objects. Workers on oil fields or those who work around heavy equipment may lose a limb that is caught in moving machinery.
  • Dog bites - An attack by a dog may lead to one or more severed fingers. Some dogs have very strong jaws, and bite injuries may cause crushed bones, leading to the amputation of a hand or foot.

Following the loss of a limb, a person will usually need extensive medical treatment. Emergency care may address the immediate effects of an injury, such as loss of blood, and surgery will most likely be required to close the wound and ensure that it will be able to heal correctly. A person may also experience infections or other complications. As they recover from an amputation, a person will need to undergo physical therapy and occupational therapy to help them learn how to complete daily tasks following the loss of a limb. A person may also need prosthetics, wheelchairs, or other assistive devices, and they may experience significant pain and suffering, including "phantom pains" from their missing limb and emotional trauma from their experience.
