The loss of a limb is an injury that can affect a person’s entire life. You may be forced to re-learn things that once came easily, to find new ways of doing things and even to find a new line of work. How do you open a can of soup with one hand? How do you learn to write with your non-dominant hand?
While nothing can undo the injury, the actions of an experienced lawyer can help make things easier. Your lawyer can take effective action, helping you obtain the full and fair compensation you deserve.
At Butler Viadro, LLP, we represent people who have suffered amputation injuries in many different situations. Our clients are people who were injured by a dangerous or defective product, on another’s property, on the job site or in car accidents.

Loss Of Limb Compensation
By taking legal action after the loss of a limb, you may be able to recover compensation for the harm you experienced. This compensation can cover medical bills, the costs of continuing medical care, prosthetic devices and physical therapy. It can also compensate you for missed work and future wage loss, as well as for pain and suffering.
An elevator constructor sustained a “de-gloving” injury to his hand and forearm when the extremity became caught between an elevator’s rotating drive sheave and its cables. The injury included the loss of a thumb and first finger. One of the worker’s major toes was later electively amputated and transplanted to damaged hand to create new thumb. We helped the worker recover full and fair compensation after his elevator accident.
