Nothing Can Make Up For The Loss Of A Limb, But We Will Fight For Justice
The loss of a limb presents numerous challenges both physically and psychologically. You may have serious difficulties getting around on your own, despite tremendous advances in prosthetic limb technology. Even those who adjust well to their prosthesis can never return to their same pre-accident lifestyle.
Attorneys Chris Carney, Larry Klein and Candace Wahba, of the Cleveland personal injury law firm of Klein & Carney Co., L.P.A., have more than 65 years of legal experience. We are dedicated to serving injured people across northeastern Ohio and beyond.
Helping People Who Have Lost Limbs Recover Full Compensation
An amputation can occur in a number of different circumstances. In many cases, severe injuries in the workplace can lead to amputation. In motorcycle accidents, every limb is exposed and therefore subject to severe injury.
Victims of negligence in nursing homes and hospitals can also suffer severe infections that require amputation. If left untreated, bedsores can create serious infection and lead to the loss of a limb.
You can depend on our lawyers to fully investigate the circumstances of your injuries to find every potentially liable party. Once we determine who is liable for your injuries, we will prepare a complete claim for damages. These damages will include medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. In amputation injuries, if you are not able to work in your chosen field, we will also make a claim for diminished income capacity, or future loss of earnings. Know that our lawyers will be with you at each step of the way.
