Virginia Injury Attorneys Handle Loss of Limb Claims

Alexandria firm aids victims of dismemberment and amputation

When someone’s body is crushed in a car crash, an industrial accident, or another type of incident, they could lose an arm or leg. In some incidents, limbs are severed upon impact. There are also accidents where arteries and nerves are damaged to the point where amputation is necessary to save the victim’s life. If you or someone you love has lost a limb and someone else was liable for the tragic injury, Curcio Law in Alexandria can help. Our skillful Virginia litigators gather the necessary facts and expert evidence to secure proper payment for clients whose lives are forever changed because of a defendant’s negligence.

Types of accidents that can lead to the loss of an arm or a leg

People can lose a limb in several different kinds of accidents. We handle a full range of these cases, including those that arise from:

  • Vehicle crashes — A large portion of lost limb cases are linked to auto accidents. With decades of combined experience representing victims in litigation and insurance claims, you can count on us for effective advocacy.
  • Product failures — Tools and heavy machinery that do not perform as they should, could lead to a crush injury or catastrophic cut that forces someone to lose their arm or leg. Our firm thoroughly investigates these cases to determine where the legal responsibility lies.
  • Workplace accidents — Industrial jobs often put workers at risk, and if proper safety measures are not taken, an employee might be the victim of a dismemberment or an injury that compels doctors to amputate a limb.

When someone besides the victim is at fault for the accident, our accomplished personal injury lawyers initiate legal action demanding compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Recovery of damages following a catastrophic injury

If you have suffered a loss of limb or some other form of catastrophic injury, the potential defendant or their lawyer might reach out to you quickly, trying to negotiate a settlement. This can be a tempting offer, especially when dealing with an unexpected change in your life, along with the medical bills accompanying your treatment. However, you should speak to a qualified Virginia attorney who is on your side and who can provide knowledgeable advice regarding the type of payment you should expect in a verdict or settlement. We work with doctors, occupational therapists, and other experts to present a detailed argument about the many ways in which losing an arm or a leg will affect you for years to come. Specific damages can include modifications that need to be made to your home, expenses related to prosthetic devices, and help you might need to handle everyday tasks.
