Minnesota Amputation Lawyer
Injuries that lead to amputation of a finger, arm, leg, toe, or foot can be caused by a number of accidents. Even a dog bite or medical malpractice can lead to the amputation of an extremity, which can be extremely painful both physically and mentally. Unfortunately, many of these amputations occur due to accidents that were not the victim’s fault.
As for what determines fault in an amputation case, your Minnesota amputation lawyer will take a look at the facts of your case before pursuing action against the responsible party. It is your right to seek compensation from all who are liable for your injuries.
How Liability Is Determined
Liability can be on the shoulders of an individual or a company and these are examples of liable parties in a case:
- A driver in an auto accident
- A trucking company when them or their driver is responsible for an accident
- An employer when an accident happens on the job
- The owner or driver of a freight truck involved in an accident
- A bar or restaurant who sells alcoholic beverages
- The owner of a construction site or the construction company
- A doctor or other medical professional for medical malpractice
- The manufacturer, distributor, and even the retailer of a defective product
- The manufacturer of a medication that caused gangrene
- The dog owner if bitten by a dog
- A person responsible for assaulting you
These individuals can be held liable for any one of these incidents and under normal circumstances the liable parties and their insurance companies are obligated to pay you. The amount of your compensation is agreed upon in a settlement or by a jury in a trial.
After An Amputation
After an amputation occurs you may be contacted by insurance companies because they are ready to make a quick settlement. However, don’t settle for their amount because they will never settle for the amount that you deserve. Do not talk to them because anything you say could be used against you. You lost a part of yourself, so you deserve justice. It is your right to receive as much compensation as possible.
