What type of compensation could I recover for my amputation injury?
- Lost wages: this refers to the past lost income when you have taken a significant amount of time from work to heal from your injuries. Usually, amputations require several months out of work while the victim focuses on recovering from their surgery, and learning to cope with their limited mobility.
- Future lost wages: this refers to the lost future income. For example, if the victim had a job in construction, and had their foot amputated, they could recover future lost wages from their lost job.
- Pain and suffering: amputations could cause severe emotional trauma, while the victim is emotionally distressed learning how to cope in the real world.
- Permanent disability: amputations almost always require permanent disability and impairment.
- In the United States, there are about 185,000 amputations that occur every year.
- There are about 3.6 million Americans that live without a limb
- The most common causes of amputations are diabetes and trauma from accidents.
Is amputation considered an injury?
An amputation occurs when there is a separation of the limb, and the lost limb is qualified as an injury. If you have suffered any type of injury as a result of a third party, you have the right to see compensation in California. This compensation can range depending on the circumstances of your accident. For example, if you have suffered very severe injuries that have caused permanent damage, you will be able to recover a large sum of compensation from the at fault party.
How much is my amputation injury lawsuit worth?
Anticipations can be very costly. The average cost of an amputation is around $100,000 just in the first year, especially because amputations may require extensive surgeries and plastic surgeries afterwards. Other than the surgery, these injuries potentially also require prosthetics that the victim has to wear.

How much do our amputation injury attorneys cost?
Our experienced amputation injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This means that our attorneys do not accept any fees upfront unless we win a settlement or a judgment in your favor. We take on all the risks associated with litigating your claims.
What if I was also responsible for my amputation injury?
California is a pure comparative fault state. This means that even if you were partially responsible for your injuries, you still may be able to recover a portion of your compensation. Your compensation will be deducted by the percentage of your liability. For example, if you are 30% liable for your injuries, you may only recover 70% of your compensation from the other party.
When should I file my amputation injury lawsuit?
You have two years from the date of the accident to file your amputation injury lawsuit in California. If you file your lawsuit too late, you will risk your right to file compensation and seek recovery from the at fault party.
