Washington DC Amputation Injury Attorney

Get Help from Our Experienced & Skilled Legal Team

An amputation is the loss of some or all of a body part due to an accident or surgical removal, resulting in permanent disability and long-term medical consequences. Over 1.5 million Americans are living with limb loss and about 30,000 amputations occur in the United States annually.

Types of amputation injuries include:

  • Complete amputation – a limb is entirely severed from the rest of the body.
  • Partial amputation – part of the limb remains attached after amputation.

The loss of a limb can be an immensely traumatizing experience for an individual and their family. Along with extensive medical treatment, physical therapy and modifications to their homes or cars, there is a possibility that the injury will force a victim to stop working and enjoying normal activities in life. If you have suffered an amputation due to the negligence of another party, our Washington DC personal injury attorneys at Regan Zambri Long, PLLC are prepared to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

Main Causes of Amputation

While the common causes of amputations are due to cancer, vascular disease, and trauma, they also often occur in motor vehicle accidents. Industrial, factory and construction-related work accidents, such as falling debris or reckless use of machinery, can sever or crush limbs.

Let Us Obtain the Compensation You Deserve

Once your amputation occurs, you may be contacted by insurance companies attempting to provide you with a settlement. In most cases, they do not offer the proper amount of compensation. It’s imperative to decline to speak with insurance representatives of the liable parties, since anything you say may be used to pay you less than you deserve.

At Regan Zambri Long, PLLC, we believe our clients are entitled to compensation necessary to get their lives back on track. Our firm won’t treat you as just another case number. We provide each of our clients with a compassionate and personalized approach by taking every aspect of their case into consideration, helping them navigate through the complexities of personal injury claims, and protecting their rights.
