That is why we diligently work to secure a high-value verdict or settlement that adequately compensates your pain and suffering.

Causes of loss of limb injuries
At HLM, our attorneys diligently advocate for amputee victims. We have the knowledge and skill to handle these injuries and the underlying incident. Some of the most common circumstances often leading to amputation include:
- Auto, truck and motorcycle accidents. Catastrophic auto, truck and motorcycle accidents can result in amputation. Crushing injuries, as well as dangerous levels of oxygen loss in the limbs, may necessitate an amputation.
- Construction site accidents. The inherent dangers of construction sites can result in severe injuries – falls from heights, being crushed, having heavy objects fall on you – including loss of limb.
- Medical malpractice injuries. When physicians fail to meet a standard of care by allowing an infection to spread, misdiagnosing an illness, or failing to read a chart correctly, a wrongful amputation can occur.
Our knowledgeable Atlanta loss of limb lawyers have successfully handled a variety of incidents resulting in amputation. Trust us to handle the complexities of your case.
Seeking compensation for future care
Our lawyers consult with your physicians and medical specialists to ascertain the extent of your injuries and level of medical care required for your well-being. We then investigate the incident leading to your injuries to identify all responsible parties. In seeking compensation, we put forth a case that considers the following:
- Your cost of medical care
- Loss of earning potential
- Loss of wages
- Physical pain
- Emotional suffering
The loss of a limb has long-lasting effects for the victim and the victim’s family. While many medical innovations assist amputees in living their everyday lives, these advancements are costly. Medical bills quickly escalate, placing the family in an extremely challenging dilemma. Our skilled Atlanta loss of limb attorneys work to ensure that our clients can live a full life despite their injuries. We understand the high price of this endeavor when prosthetics and continuous medical care become necessities of life.
