Amputations are one of the most traumatizing consequences of a catastrophic accident. Approximately 185,000 amputations occur annually, and 45% of them are the result of negligent or reckless behavior, including motor vehicle collisions, workplace incidents, and sporting injuries.

What is the Legal Process for Amputation Cases in Lakeland?
If you have suffered an amputation due to another party’s negligence, you may be eligible for compensation. Here is a brief overview of the legal process in Polk County for amputation cases:
Filing a Lawsuit. The first step in seeking justice is filing a lawsuit against the responsible party. An experienced amputation injury lawyer can guide you through the legal process.
Building a Strong Case. We know how to determine liability, prove the full value of your claim, and pursue the compensation that provides for your lifelong care. We gather evidence, speak to witnesses, and document your injuries and losses to make a compelling case on your behalf. We may also obtain medical records, accident reports, and expert testimony.
Determining Compensation. The circumstances of your accident influence the compensation you receive, which often involves the extent of your injuries and their impact on your life. You may be eligible for medical expenses (past, ongoing, and future), lost wages, loss of earning capacity caused by the amputation, and pain and suffering.
We have years of experience handling amputation cases in Lakeland and can help you determine what damages you may be eligible to recover.
