Most people cannot even imagine what it would feel like to go through life missing a limb. Going through an accident that results in the loss of a limb is not only painful, but there is also the trauma that comes with losing a vital part of your body, and how such a devastating event can have a significant impact on your life and your work. If that injury was caused by the negligence of another the feelings of pain and loss and frustration can seem too much to bear.

What kinds of accidents result in the loss of a limb?
There are many ways in which a person might lose a limb, but some of the more common types of accidents include:
A person can lose a limb as a result of severe trauma as in an accident, but it can also occur as a result of a horrendous medical malpractice error. One of the challenges that comes with the loss of a limb is phantom pain. This is a phenomena where the patient continues to experience pain in the limb that is no longer there. Along with the sometimes debilitating phantom pain comes significant psychological distress of facing life feeling disfigured.
Compensation for loss of limb injuries
If your injury was caused by another’s negligence you can work with a personal injury attorney who will negotiate a settlement with the responsible party’s insurance company or your case may end up going to trial in civil court where a jury will decide on how much you will receive in compensatory damages. Some of the different things you could be compensated for include:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Vocational counseling
- Prosthetic equipment and therapy
Based on the limb you have lost, it could potentially have a significant impact on your ability to do your job. You many need to receive training in a whole new field of employment, which may impact your future income. These kinds of losses will be factored in to your settlement amount.
