Amputation claims can be brought against the people and entities who may be responsible for the injury. Common defendants include general contractors, responsible subcontractors, product manufacturers and designers, or in the case of vehicle accidents drivers and the employers of those drivers.
Amputation injuries and prosthetics also pose many risks associated with medication side effects and other amputation complications, including:
- Phantom pain syndrome
- Chronic neuroma
- Sympathetic dystrophy syndrome
In order to obtain the maximum possible result at settlement or trial, many amputation cases benefit from a life-care planner, vocational rehabilitation expert, and economist to provide support for the extent of economic damages that the amputation victim is, more likely than not, going to experience.
