New Orleans Amputation Injury Attorneys
Loss of a limb is a dramatic injury on any scale. There is no way to put a price on a part of one’s body, no amount of money that makes up for the physical disability or the psychological impact.
Stephen Rue & Associates Law Firm works to obtain justice for amputation accidents by holding the negligent party accountable for a life-altering injury and by pursuing monetary damages to cover financial hardships and improve quality of life.
Metairie Dismemberment Injury Lawyers
We have represented clients throughout Greater New Orleans and Louisiana who lost appendages in personal injury or workplace accidents — maritime accidents, machinery accidents, power tool accidents, dog bites and motor vehicle accidents. Whether the limb was severed at the scene or surgically amputated because of tissue damage or infection, the loss is profoundly traumatic.
Stephen Rue & Associates have recovered damages for amputated arms, legs, hands, feet, fingers, toes, ears and other body parts. Workers’ compensation rules and insurance companies commonly assign a fixed dollar figure to different amputation injuries. At Stephen Rue & Associates Law Firm, we try to individualize the loss and calculate the tangible damages:
- Medical care, including surgery
- Prosthetic limbs and future replacements
- Lost wages and lost earning capacity
- Lost opportunities of a young child
- Counseling or treatment for depression
- Disfigurement and loss of social status
We want to help clients live as normal a life as possible following an amputation. We realize that coming to terms with a loss of limb is humbling, frustrating and very unfair. We will do everything we can to make the responsible parties acknowledge and atone for the accident.
