Toronto Transfemoral Injury Lawyers
If you or someone you love has had a leg amputated above the knee, you have suffered an unimaginable physical and psychological loss. The Toronto amputation lawyers at Mazin & Associates, PC understand the magnitude and consequences of such a devastating injury. Medical causes like diabetes or frostbite can lead to amputations. Burns, traffic accidents, workplace accidents, and even violent crime can require a person’s leg to be removed above the knee. It is even possible for a serious attack by a dog (or another animal) to result in severe injuries.
Whatever the cause, such injuries can cause phantom limb pain, make victims susceptible to blood clots and infection, and prevent victims from doing the daily activities that bring them joy. These injuries can even cause death. Sometimes, amputations above the knee occur because someone else is at fault. Either through negligent actions, poor decision-making, or outright recklessness, one person’s actions can turn someone else’s life upside down. Our experienced team can evaluate how best to proceed depending on the reasons for your amputation and the situation involved.
Call Mazin & Associates, PC for a free case evaluation at (416) 625-2122. We will evaluate the circumstances that led to your transfemoral amputation and help develop a plan that gets you justice and well-deserved compensation. We work on a contingency-fee basis, which means that we do not collect legal fees unless you receive a financial award. We also offer free case evaluations, so you can speak to one of our lawyers risk-free.
Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer to Represent Me?
Personal injury lawyers can help you with many facets of your case, but the main reason to hire a lawyer is to hand over your worries to someone else. An amputation above the knee necessitates lifestyle changes that are usually unanticipated and difficult to navigate. It causes pain, emotional turmoil, and the need for accommodations. Often, this injury leads to extensive rehab and prosthesis fittings. The lost wages from missing work and stress on family members are heavy burdens to bear. Rather than worrying about a frightening and often mystifying legal process, why not allow a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer shoulder that aspect of your stress?
Experienced lawyers understand personal injury law. They regularly deal with hostile insurance companies who want nothing more than to deny you compensation. What’s more, they have the skills to make juries listen and opposing counsel fearful. They can gather evidence, craft a compelling claim, and negotiate with insurance while you focus on recovering from your amputation.
If you choose not to hire a personal injury lawyer, you are taking a big risk. Insurance companies know how to take advantage of people when they are most vulnerable. It is much more difficult to get a satisfactory settlement or jury award with punitive damages if you do not have a lawyer to fight for on your behalf.
