Amputation / Loss of Use Due to an Accident? We Can Help
Compassionate Attorneys Serving Upstate NY
The loss of a finger, hand, foot, or limb as a medical procedure is never easy, but oftentimes warranted to improve an individual’s health.
The loss of a limb as the result of a careless accident, however, is a devastating personal injury. Because of another person or party’s negligence, the life of the accident victim — now an amputee — is changed forever.

Call us directly at (518) 663-6015 or contact us online to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss your options for compensation.
Our Lawyers Seek Maximum Compensation for Accident Victims
The experienced legal team at E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy regularly represents people throughout NY State who have suffered the loss of a limb in an accident caused by another person. An amputation can have a devastating financial impact on the amputee and his or her family. Accordingly, we aggressively seek compensation to cover a wide range of expenses:
- Medical expenses — Medical bills for the initial injury can be extremely high. However, long-term care for amputees can also be high, depending on the nature of the injury. Long-term care can include rehabilitation and physical therapy.
- Prosthetic limbs — Some amputees are able to use artificial limbs. New prosthetic technology is always emerging. If you have lost a limb in a negligent accident, we will seek compensation to allow you to use the latest assistive products.
- Loss of livelihood — Many amputees are unable to continue their jobs after the injury. If your ability to work is affected, we will assess the long-term financial losses that result.
Many amputees experience phantom limb pain, or the feeling of pain, tingling, or other sensations in the amputated limb for the rest of their lives. We seek compensation for not only the current situation, but keep in mind the long term impact for the victim and their family.
