Amputation Is a Catastrophic Injury

Under California personal injury law, amputations or loss of limb is considered a catastrophic injury. This means that the injury is so severe that it caused permanent damage that dramatically changes or impacts the victim’s functional capabilities.

Victims are entitled to compensation for the devastating, lasting and life-altering effects caused by the loss of limb. If you were involved in an accident that resulted in an amputation, you may be able to seek compensation for the following things:

  • Medical expenses — hospital stays, specialists, doctor appointments, medications,
    surgical procedures
  • Inpatient or outpatient physical and occupational therapy
  • Prosthetics — purchase cost and maintenance costs
  • Medical equipment such as wheelchairs or canes
  • Modifications to vehicles or homes that help with daily functions
  • Vocational rehabilitation
  • Loss of wages
  • Psychological trauma
  • Pain and suffering

It can be difficult to determine how much compensation to ask for when pursuing a personal injury lawsuit. You have to take into account current expenses, such as medical bills and surgeries, as well as future expenses like the loss of income, training for a new job, and maintenance of prosthetics. Don’t try to figure out on your own how much compensation to seek.
