South Carolina Amputation Lawyers
Any accident or injury that results in the amputation of any appendages - big or small - tends to be extremely traumatic. The initial and immediate pain and suffering from the accident is devastating enough, but it can also be difficult to cope without the use of a leg, arm, or even a finger for the remainder of your life.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury that required amputation due to the negligence of others, or if an insurance company does not want to adequately compensate your expenses and losses, the legal services of our professional amputation attorneys can ensure those parties uphold their obligations to restore your financial circumstances and long-term health. Joe and Martin Law Firm provides legal representation to amputation and dismemberment accident victims across South Carolina.
Amputation Settlements and Verdicts – Consider the Long Term
Any injury that requires amputation is very serious. After the victim has healed from the injury and operations, there is still lengthy rehabilitation and a lifetime of hardship and discomfort. Anyone who endures a permanent disability such as an amputation should consult with an amputation injury lawyer to fully understand their right to pursue legal action. We have experience representing amputation accident victims and understand the difficulties of dealing with liable parties and insurance companies.
