Loss of Limb Use Due to an Accident? We Can Help.

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.

At E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy, we offer compassionate, aggressive representation to individuals who have suffered amputation injuries as the result of a careless accident.

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.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
