Boston Amputation Attorney
At the DiBella Law Offices, P.C. we understand that, as a victim of an amputation, you are facing substantial medical bills, stress and the immense emotional trauma associated with a life-altering injury. In addition, the pain, suffering, and rehabilitation process are all challenges that can quickly become overwhelming. Our compassionate Boston personal injury lawyers can help secure your future by getting you compensation from the negligent party that caused your injury. For more information about your legal rights and options, call (617) 870-0907 for a free case evaluation.
In the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, any party who contributed to the injury of person can be held liable in a personal injury claim. This could include the driver of a car that caused the accident, the manufacturer of the car or part of the car (defective tires, brakes, etc.), the party that sold the car, and the owner of the property where the injury occurred. The critical factor in proving liability in a personal injury case is establishing the “duty of care.” Duty of care means that each person has a responsibility to act in a manner that shows the watchfulness, attention, and caution that a reasonable person would use in a similar situation. Your DiBella personal injury lawyer will investigate and demonstrate that the party who injured you did not meet this level of reasonable action, and therefore is responsible for your injuries.
There are many personal injuries which are considered to be very severe, but most do not hold the long-term implications of an amputation. The experienced team of personal injury lawyers at DiBella Law Offices, P.C. have seen all too many of these cases, and watched as the victims struggle to regain their independence. While your focus is on healing and getting back to as functional a life as possible, our lawyers know that there will be added expenses, challenges, and possibly even pain for the rest of your life. And as a result, the compensation that you seek needs to take into consideration the changes and challenges of this new future you are facing.
Planning for the rest of your life can be difficult, especially when you are not even sure what that life might entail. But as your medical bills and living expenses mount, you clearly need to begin the process of securing compensation. That is where the lawyers at DiBella Law Offices, P.C., will show you the value of their experience and legal prowess. Some of the damages that you seek could include:
- Current and future medical bills related to the amputation
- Cost of care or living assistance
- Alterations to your home or vehicle to make them accessible after your amputation
- Loss of wages
- Loss of career and future earning potential
- Emotional trauma and distress
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of marital consortium
At DiBella Law Offices, P.C., we understand that facing the rest of your life as an amputee could be more than you can even bear to face at this point. But the simple fact is that the person or persons responsible for the devastating injuries that you suffered needs to be brought to justice. Unfortunately, nothing that we do will bring back your limb and make your body whole again, but we can offer you some peace of mind in the form of financial security as you face this altered future. Please call our Boston office at (617) 870-0907 today and allow our personal injury lawyers to protect your rights and future.
