Part of the body is suddenly and permanently gone. The person eventually adapts, but the challenges are difficult and life will never be the same. The lost limb is starkly obvious to others, and the harsh reality can be psychologically overwhelming.

Iowa Amputation Injury Lawyers

Whether your loved one's limb was severed in an accident or whether he or she suffered the second agony of surgical amputation after the fact, an amputation is devastating. Our personal injury lawyers have extensive experience in cases of catastrophic injury. We have the resources and network of experts to establish liability and detail the comprehensive damages.

The insurance companies have a baseline figure for each type of amputation: loss of a leg or a severed arm, partial amputation below the knee or below the elbow, or loss of a foot, hand or fingers. We focus on the bigger picture of how the injury translates into physical, financial and personal loss:

  • Surgery and medical care
  • Prosthetic limbs and future replacements
  • Physical therapy to compensate for the lost limb
  • Vocational rehabilitation
  • Psychological counseling
  • Pain and suffering
  • Diminished quality of life

Dedicated to Your Future and Full Value of Your Case

Those who survive an amputation accident can live a full and happy life, but the victim and the family have many needs in the aftermath of the accident. We work with many professionals, including rehabilitation specialists, psychologists, economists and life-care planners, to project those needs and present a compelling case for damages.
