Legal Representation Regarding Injuries Requiring Amputation
When someone loses a limb or limbs in an accident, crucial legal questions immediately arise. Who is liable for the accident? What really caused the accident? And what is the financial value of a potential case, i.e., what future income will be lost, what past, present and future expenses will be incurred, and what dollar value can be attached to pain, suffering and diminished quality of life?
These questions and hundreds more must be competently addressed in order to obtain the full value for an amputation injury case. If you or a loved one is dealing with the trauma of an amputation, you have to worry about making the fullest possible physical recovery. At the New York City personal injury law firm of Smiley & Smiley, LLP, we have handled numerous catastrophic injury cases involving amputation/loss of limb.

A famous case illustrates our ability to recover compensation for loss of limb cases. Our client passed out on a subway rail due to excessive alcohol consumption and lost a foot when a train drove over it. A first glance at this case might signal that our client caused the injury due to his drinking.
Our investigation, though, revealed that, had the train driver been paying attention like he was supposed to, he could have stopped in time, like he was trained to do. We presented our case before a Manhattan jury, and our client was awarded a $3.595 million verdict.
