Legal Help for Victims of Traumatic Amputations and Limb Loss
The amputation of a limb can be one of the most traumatic events in a person's life. Outside of permanent disability, emotional and mental trauma can take a lifetime to resolve. This feeling is multiplied when the accident that caused the amputation could have been prevented, had the responsible party not behaved in a reckless or incompetent manner. If you, or a family member, are struggling with a recent amputation that was not of your own doing, contact Cullan & Cullan LLC today.

However, you may be thinking – "What good is a lawyer at this point? The damage has already been done."
This is a valid question and one we often receive. While a Nebraska personal injury claim cannot turn back the clock, or undo the damage that has been done to you, it can help you overcome some of the immediate financial obstacles you may face. Amputation of any kind is very expensive, requiring extensive amounts of therapy and long term specialist care. Over time, medical bills could eventually overrun your insurance, increase your premium and eventually begin to chip away at your savings. A successful claim can help cover these expenses and replace any losses you may have suffered up until that point.
Don't wait another moment. Call a Nebraska catastrophic injury lawyer at Cullan & Cullan LLC today and explore your legal rights and options in a comprehensive consultation.
What Kind of Accidents Cause Amputations?
As of 2014, there were over 2 million amputees living and working in the United States. While a vast majority of these individuals lost limbs due to vascular disease or diabetes, nearly 25% suffered an unplanned amputation in some sort of accident. These incidents range in type and severity, but they all could have been prevented had the at-fault individual taken the time to consider their actions. The following are just some of the accidents that can end in an amputation:
- Motorcycle, car, truck, boat, ATV and pedestrian accidents
- Construction or industrial workplace accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Medical malpractice
