Adapting with Help

Dismemberment is one of the hardest injuries for a person to undergo. Whether there is a full shear of a limb due to an accident or an amputation due to injury, disease, or drug reaction, the after-effects are all severe and life-altering. When faced with such an issue, many victims do not know their legal rights. So they have no idea what they should be doing next.

Strong legal counsel is often vital for the next stage of recovery, both medically and financially. We hear horror stories from victims who still think they have their limb, and say they can still feel it there, even though it was lobbed off. These poor souls are going through some terrible times indeed.

Severe Side Effects

The price of the loss of a limb is far steeper than that shown upfront. Beyond just the absence of that limb, the person will face years of rehabilitation and the possible need for long-term medical treatment and nursing care.

  • There could be severe side effects and infections that could arise as well as the mounting medical bills.

All of this can be overwhelming for someone just involved in a terrible accident. The need for an attorney to help sort through these many problems is apparent.

The aftermath is a long and costly process that the patient must go through. This person will have to be educated about the restrictions that the amputation will cause them. And they must also cope with the long-term effects of the injury or surgery. The actual amputation or surgery dealing with the event is often long and intensive and will require special care to allow a prosthesis to be fitted.

Need for Extensive Treatment

  • After surgery, extensive physical therapy and continued medical treatment will be needed.

And this is particularly true since the patient is dealing with the condition for the first time. This person now has to deal with learning how to function, drive, and work. And this is all new without a valuable limb. So they will need to work through issues for years.

When faced with all of these factors, you are not alone. Not only are the doctors and nurses there to try and make the transition easier, but an experienced attorney can also assist in dealing with many of the long-term ramifications. They can help in countering the party possibly at fault for your injury or dealing with your insurance company.

For More Information

Call Ehline Law for a free consultation to assist in this troubling time, or make sure and do a lot of research before giving any statements to anyone as to the cause of your loss. Insurance companies are notorious for using statements made by victims against the victims at a later date.

It is easy to say something out of context that will harm your case later on. The rehab is always better when there is significant money to pay for it. Therefore, most lawyers will advise the victims to never speak to anyone about how the injury occurred, unless it is through their attorney.

Were You Injured From Overexertion, Cutting or Piercing?

Weird as it sounds, overexertion, cutting, and piercing are common injuries faced by people in L.A. When you think about it, just living and commuting in the city lends itself to these types of injuries. A thrown biker can be pierced and punctured by all manner of fixed and moving objects like metal poles, glass shards, and barriers.

But of course, piercings can be done at a tattoo parlor, or they can be due to assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. In fact, a piercing of the skin due to a dog attack raises questions of strict liability.

Injuries due to cutting and piercing are common. In fact, they represent a significant number of Los Angeles-area injuries. Each is unacceptable. Often, these come from different sources. These include dog bites, workplace injuries, vehicle injuries, and motorcycle accidents.

Also, overexertion could reveal itself in the form of sexual harassment or constructive termination case. Only a well trained Los Angeles personal injury lawyer can decipher the facts and make the situation a winner.
