Effects of Amputation to Consider for Amputation Lawsuits
Phantom Pain Management
Dealing with real and often excruciating pain in the amputated area, or even on the opposite side, requires the expertise of a skilled pain management doctor to prevent it from dominating your life.
Prosthetics and Compensation
Prosthetics, while not perfect, can greatly enhance functionality post-amputation. They can be expensive, impacting the value of your case, especially when insurance falls short.
Amputation can lead to PTSD, anxiety, and depression. Many with amputations struggle with self-consciousness and traumatic memories. Seeking counseling from a psychologist or psychiatrist is essential.
An amputation often results in a significant impact on your earning potential. To ensure fair compensation, it’s crucial to involve an experienced vocational expert or economist to assess the financial implications.
Medical Bill Coverage
Whether it’s a Workers’ Compensation case or a Negligence claim, you should not bear the burden of medical bills. Your amputation injury lawyer will help ensure your medical expenses are covered.
Future Medical Expenses
Certainly, whether a Work Comp matter or Negligence case, you shouldn’t be responsible for the payment of medical bills at the end of the day. Make sure your amputation attorney can fight for sufficient medical compensation for you.
Pain and Suffering
An amputation can lead to a profound loss of life’s joys. Keep a chart of activities you once loved but can no longer do due to the injury to support your claim for pain and suffering compensation.

Work-Related Amputation Cases
Cardamone Law has handled many work-related amputation cases to successful decisions or settlements. Amputation lawsuits in Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation can be very complex. Attorney Cardamone is a Certified Work Comp Specialist – one of only about 100 in all of Pennsylvania who represent injured workers. The Specific Loss provisions of the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act apply to amputations.
If you suffer from an amputation at work, you will be entitled to a specific number of weeks of work comp checks, plus a healing period, based on a chart – even if the amputation injury didn’t cause you to miss any work time. Many lawyers who don’t handle many Workers’ Compensation cases, will miss this and only focus on the disability angle. Not us. Our Pennsylvania amputation lawyers are highly experienced and will maximize the value of your case.
Even if you don’t have an amputation, if you lose the ability to use a limb or body party for all practical intents and purposes, it can be a specific loss, entitling you to a significant award. Our firm’s best amputation injury lawyers are skilled in figuring out clear loss benefits and how to position a case for maximum value.
