Tampa Amputation Lawyers
We Focus on Catastrophic Injury Claims
At Gunn Law Group, P.A., we have deliberately centered our law firm’s focus on catastrophic injury claims, including amputation injuries. If you have lost a limb due to the negligence of a third party, then we want to hear from you. Our amputation claims attorneys accept cases in Tampa, Lutz, Odessa, and beyond.
In amputation cases, the damages owed to the plaintiff are often significant, possibly ranging into seven figures. Insurance companies do not like paying anything to plaintiffs, especially when the owed compensation is so steep.
If your case cannot be settled fairly due to a stubborn insurance company, then we will be ready to litigate on your behalf. Once we accept a case, we do not back down when so much is on the line for our client.
Causes of Amputation Injuries
For your amputation injury claim to have a strong chance of being successful, we need to clearly establish why you were not liable for your accident and resulting injuries. By investigating the cause of your amputation, we might be able to uncover evidence of negligence and recklessness on behalf of the party that hurt you.
Our mission is securing every last penny of compensation, which requires us to minimize your liability as much as possible, ideally down to 0%.
What caused your amputation injury?
- Violent accident: The majority of amputation injuries are suffered in violent accidents that leave victims catastrophically injured, sometimes in various ways. High-speed traffic collisions, truck accidents caused by fully loaded big rigs, and workplace accidents around heavy machinery are only a few examples of accidents that can cause limb loss. With our intentional focus on catastrophic injury claims, Gunn Law Group, P.A. in Tampa is uniquely poised to effectively handle your claim, no matter what type of accident you were in.
- Medical malpractice: As unthinkable as it may be, a medical provider’s mistakes can and do sometimes cause a patient to lose a toe, finger, hand, foot, arm, or leg. For example, wrong site amputations are one of the most egregious and inexcusable types of medical malpractice that causes an amputation. It is also possible for a patient to lose a limb due to not receiving the correct treatment in a timely manner.
Day-to-Day Hardships Caused by Amputations
The economic damages in an amputation case can be significant. Medical treatments to stabilize the injury and hospitalization of the patient afterward will be severe. It is also likely that a tremendous amount of wages and earning capacity will be lost due to the inability to continue work as before.
Regardless of how significant your economic damages may be for your amputation injury claim, it is crucial not to overlook noneconomic damages. In a personal injury claim, a noneconomic damage is any damage that cannot be easily tracked or recorded on a bill, receipt, or paycheck, such as your pain, suffering, emotional trauma, and frustration.
Losing an arm or a leg will cause you to experience new hardships in your day-to-day life and limit your independence and mobility. Depending on the severity of your amputation or amputations, you may become largely dependent on the assistance of others to complete tasks most people take for granted, like bathing, getting dressed, walking up and down the stairs, or just taking out the trash.
You deserve to be fairly compensated for the emotional and mental harm felt because of these hardships, which you would have never experienced at all had it not been for the negligent party that caused your amputation injury.
