A catastrophic injury involving an amputation can occur in several different kinds of circumstances: car collisions; industrial, mining, logging or other workplace accidents; and injuries from medical mistakes, just to name a few. If an amputation injury was caused because of another’s negligence or carelessness, the injured person is entitled to recover compensation for the injury and all of the devastating consequences that injury can cause.
The Manchin Injury Law Group in West Virginia is dedicated to helping victims of serious accidents obtain full compensation, including the financial resources that can pay for needed medical care.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are about 20,000 amputation injuries each year. The loss of a hand or foot, or an entire limb, is devastating to a person’s life in all manner of ways.
Not only can an amputation injury lead to a wide variety of physical handicaps and debilitations, often leading to loss of employment, but it can also totally alter a person’s perception of their own identity. Additionally, a person who has suffered an amputation injury will likely incur significant medical bills as a result of the necessary treatment for these injuries. Such treatment can often include surgery, the creation of a prosthetic device to attempt to replace the missing limb, physical therapy and additional rehabilitative treatment. An amputation can also require the modification of a person’s home or car to help that person function despite the loss of a limb. Amputation injuries can have massive financial costs, but the true cost of such an injury runs much deeper.
