Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Recovery from a shoulder disarticulation amputation can take at least four to eight weeks, if not longer depending on whether or not complications develop. This does not include the time that it will take a patient to recover mentally and emotionally, which can sometimes constitute months, if not years, of therapy and rehabilitation. Even after recovery, your life will be forever altered by the absence of your arm.
As if physical recovery isn’t stressful enough, lawsuits in general are demanding, complicated, and require an adept knowledge of the law. If you have not studied law or pursued a case before, the chance of a settlement will decrease significantly. You may end up solely responsible for medical expenses on top of everything else you have to manage.
When you are involved in an accident or are recovering from a serious illness, the last thing you need to worry about is how to pursue a personal injury case. Your priority should be your health and recovery and learning how to cope with this very difficult life change. The lawyers at Mazin & Associates, PC can ease the burden so that you can focus on what really matters – readjusting to life after your injury.
Our lawyers can investigate the circumstances that led to your amputation, whether it was a car accident, workplace accident, or medical malpractice. We can use our experience and knowledge to collect all the necessary evidence, including interviewing expert witnesses who we hire for your case. While you focus on recovery, we can negotiate with insurance companies or opposing lawyers on your behalf. If necessary, we can even take your case to trial to ensure you get the full amount of compensation that you deserve. With our help, your ultimate recovery will likely be far higher than it would be if you tried to handle this on your own.

Types of Cases We Handle
A shoulder disarticulation injury occurs when a patient’s entire arm must be removed but the shoulder blade and collarbone are still intact. Typically, the bone is removed from the joint completely so that no bones need to be cut, unlike standard amputation.
Multiple scenarios may result in a shoulder disarticulation, including:
- Illness – Though doctors usually try to avoid amputation except as a last resort, sometimes they deem it necessary. If you have a tumor in your upper arm or an infection has developed, a doctor may suggest removing the arm completely. However, if you believe the doctor acted prematurely, did not have sufficient evidence to warrant the arm’s removal, or did not receive the proper consent before removing your arm, you may pursue legal action.
- Medical Malpractice – Doctors are human and sometimes make mistakes; however, sometimes their mistakes can be catastrophic and emotionally devastating. For example, a doctor may become confused and amputate the wrong limb during a procedure or may remove more of the limb than they were supposed to. If you are a victim of such a costly mistake, you should contact a lawyer immediately.
- Workplace Injuries – Workplace accidents are one of the most common causes of shoulder disarticulation amputations. Though you hope that your workplace is doing all that they can to keep you safe, the negligence of your bosses and coworkers may have drastic results. Being distracted or under the influence while operating machinery, not following the correct safety procedures, and/or faulty equipment are all causes of workplace accidents that have resulted in a shoulder disarticulation amputation. If your amputation was the result of a workplace accident, Mazin & Associates, PC can help you decide whether a workers’ compensation claim, a lawsuit, or both are appropriate in your case.
- Vehicle Accidents – Severe vehicle accidents can result in devastating injuries that require emergency amputations. If you were involved in a vehicle accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be able to hold that person accountable for your injuries, including your amputation.
If any of the above situations sound familiar, or if you believe your amputation was the result of someone else’s negligence for any reason, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact one of our lawyers today to discuss your options.
