Amputations can result from traumatic injury in motor vehicle wrecks and other types of accidents. If the injury is caused by the negligence of another party, you are entitled to seek compensation to help you deal with the medical, financial and emotional issues you are likely to encounter.
At the personal injury law firm of Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow & McElroy, LLP, our attorneys represent amputees in New Jersey. We also represent people who have suffered loss of the use of a limb. No matter how you were injured, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. We have office locations in Edison, Red Bank and Toms River. Our NJ personal injury lawyers also offer home and hospital visits.
Life for an amputee is usually a series of adjustments. In addition to dealing with the loss of an arm or a leg, amputees may need to deal with issues such as phantom pain, infections and joint stiffness above the severed portion of the amputated leg or arm. Our goal as attorneys is to help you recover enough compensation from the at-fault party to pay for your present and future needs.
While no amount of compensation can replace your limb, our goal is to help you live as full and independent a life as possible. Due to the dramatic increase of amputation injuries in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, treatment options and prosthetics for amputees continue to improve. Our attorneys will seek enough compensation so you can take advantage of new prosthetic devices as they become available.
