Any accident can result in injuries, but some crashes are particularly serious. A person’s legs are vulnerable to a range of injuries when such an accident occurs, many of them leading to amputation. As you may imagine, losing all or part of a leg has lifelong consequences, which most of our neighbors here in northwest Ohio are not prepared to manage. If you have good insurance, you can expect your payout to help with at least a portion of the medical expenses associated with leg amputations. If another party’s negligence caused the accident, you have another avenue to explore, which could yield a significant amount of compensation. A personal injury lawsuit targeting the negligent motorist is sometimes the best option for those who have lost a leg. In our experience, many of these claims result in a substantial amount in terms of financial compensation. Examples of driver negligence include:
- Driving while intoxicated
- Driving while distracted
- Driving in a reckless manner (e.g. excessive speeding)
In accidents caused by faulty auto parts like defective brakes or accelerators, it is also possible to file a personal injury claim. Auto part manufacturers and designers must make their products as safe as possible. When they fail in this duty, victims can hold them liable for any injuries they have suffered.We have seen firsthand how amputations affect Ohio victims.
