How to Recover From an Amputation Injury After an Iowa Car Accident

An Iowa car accident may sever a limb, or may inflict injuries so severe that an amputation is necessaryThe moment of impact is over, but the impact of your car accident will never be over for you. It was the car crash that caused you to suffer an amputation and you must now live the rest of your life without your arm, hand, finger, leg, foot or toe. Your life will be different, but your life isn’t over.

It Is Time to Protect Your Recovery

If someone else’s negligence caused your accident and resulting amputation, then you have the legal right to recover damages for the injury that you’ve suffered. You may be able to recover compensation for the damages that you’ve already suffered, the damages that you are currently suffering, and the damages that you are likely to suffer in the future. More specifically, you may be able to recover for your past, current, and future…

  • Medical expenses: Surgeries, medications to control your pain and prevent infections, frequent doctors’ appointments, prosthetics, and other medical expenses may be significant after an amputation injury.
  • Lost income: You may be unable to work—or unable to work the same job or the same hours—resulting in a decreased income, after an amputation injury.
  • Out-of-pocket expenses: You may require assistance with things such as transportation, self-care, caring for your family, and other necessary services.
  • Pain and suffering: The physical pain and emotional suffering after an amputation can be severe and may continue for the rest of our life. While nothing can undo the significant injury you’ve suffered, you deserve to be compensated for these damages.

However, if you fail to take action and to pursue a recovery then you will be responsible for your own damages.

You Don’t Have to Do This Alone

While the recovery is yours, you don’t have to be the one to negotiate with the insurance company or convince the court of your damages. Instead, you have the right to work with an experienced car accident lawyer who will fight hard to get you the fair recovery that you deserve after this type of car accident injury.
