A limb, hand, foot, or other body part can be amputated as a result of a car crashYou have suffered a trauma that other people can’t understand. You are now one of the approximately two million people in the United States who are living without a finger, hand, arm, toe, foot, or leg. Your amputation did not occur because of an underlying disease or malformation, but instead because of the trauma of a car accident.

All of the Sudden You Need to Figure Out Life Without Your Limb

Someone else’s negligence has changed your life forever. Now, you must figure out how to deal with the medical, emotional, and other costs of living with an amputation. Some of those costs may include:

  • Doctors’ appointments
  • Hospital stays
  • Physical therapy appointments
  • Occupational therapy appointments
  • Prostheses
  • Assistive devices, such as wheelchairs or crutches
  • Assistive technology, such as a voice-activated computer
  • Changes in your personal relationships
  • Changes in your independence or daily living activities
  • Changes in your ability to work
  • Changes in your mood

If you fail to take action, then you and your family will have to incur all of these costs without assistance.

Don’t Do It Alone

Instead, protect your rights. The other driver’s insurance company may be responsible for paying your costs and may help make your future more manageable. In order to recover damages from an insurance company after an Illinois car accident injury, you will need evidence to prove that another driver was liable for the crash and that your injuries were caused by the crash.

An experienced attorney can help you gather evidence and make convincing arguments. Together, you can work toward a fair settlement or court decision that compensates you for your past, current and future:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost income
  • Out-of-pocket costs
  • Physical pain
  • Emotional suffering
