Amputations, whether they are complete or partial, are nothing short of devastating. Those who are unfortunate enough to endure an amputation face lifelong physical and emotional challenges, which is why it is vital to hold the responsible party for this catastrophic injury responsible for their actions.
A Baltimore amputation injury attorney at Brown & Barron will work tirelessly to help you receive the compensation you deserve. We understand how traumatic amputation can be and want the legal process to be as smooth as possible for you. Therefore, we will take care of all the legal matters regarding your case while you focus on healing.
How Much Could My Case Be Worth?
The loss of any part of the body is life-altering. Even losing something as small as a pinky finger could prevent you from returning to work or living life as you once did. Receiving treatment and therapy for an amputation is essential to getting back to the life you once enjoyed, but treatment costs can add up quickly. It may be impossible for you or your loved one to afford the necessary treatment on their own.
One of our Baltimore amputation injury lawyers can help you recover compensation for costs associated with your injury, including:
- Wound and stump care
- Physical therapy
- Artificial limbs and assistive devices
- In-home care and equipment
- Vocational rehabilitation
- Psychiatric therapy and counseling
Each amputation injury case has unique circumstances that make the case’s value difficult to estimate. Our attorneys will review your recoverable damages to determine your claim’s worth. Recoverable damages are the amount of money someone owes for injuring another person. Damages you could recover in an amputation injury case include:
- Medical care: This includes any costs associated with your injuries. You could include emergency room costs, hospital stays, ongoing medical care, medical supplies, in-home care, or medications in your claim.
- Future medical expenses: An amputation may require lifelong treatments, including future medical care or in-home care you might need. If this is the case, our attorneys can help you calculate the value of your future medical expenses.
- Rehabilitation costs: You may need to go through rehabilitation such as physical or occupational therapy to manage your injuries.
- Mobility equipment: If you require the use of a wheelchair, walker, or other assistive devices, you can include these costs in your claim, as well as any modifications to your house or vehicle.
- Lost income: If you had to be miss any time from work after the incident, you could be compensated for the wages, salary, bonuses, and other income you lost during that time.
- Lost earning capacity: If you cannot return to work at all or in the same role, you could include lost earning capacity in your claim. Our attorneys can calculate the value of lost future earnings.
- Pain and suffering: You may experience intense physical pain from your injuries. Any pain, anguish, or inconvenience you suffer from your injuries can be included in your claim. Our attorneys can calculate the value of this intangible damage.
- Emotional distress: An amputation can also traumatize anyone. If you suffer from any emotional issues such as anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder, your claim can include emotional damages.
All these expenses can put a huge financial toll on you and your family. Therefore, we will seek the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries. We want you to receive justice after sustaining injuries because of someone else’s negligence.

Common Causes of Amputation Injuries
While amputations may have several different causes, they are generally divided into two different categories: traumatic and surgical.
- Traumatic amputations account for about 45% of all amputation cases and can be caused by auto accidents, industrial accidents, and severe crush injuries.
- Surgical amputations occur when disease, illness, or tissue damage threaten the health of a patient, necessitating the need to remove the affected limb. The most common conditions that cause amputation are diabetes, vascular disease, and cancer.
If you suffered the loss of a limb because of the negligence of another person, such as in a motor vehicle accident or because of a doctor failed to diagnose, you deserve to have your expenses covered.
