Amputations & Limb Loss

operation Amputation is the loss of a body part, typically an appendage or extremity such as a finger, hand, arm, toe, foot or leg. There are approximately 185,000 amputations annually in the United States alone. The number one reason for amputations is due to traumas, including: boat and personal watercraft accidents, defective machinery or improper safeguards, airplane crashes, train accidents and construction accidents. The attorneys at the law firm of Brais Law Firm with offices in Miami, Florida, Boston, Massachusetts and Houston, Texas realize a lawyer’s job is to help clients on their road to recovery.

An amputation is a very serious operation where there is no other option to save the life of the injured person. Unfortunately, with this type of operation, complications do occur. Some of the more serious complications include: serious bleeding, terminal infection, and/or shock. Furthermore, the majority of those that endure an amputation experience a phenomenon known as phantom limb sensation or pain throughout their lives.

Other than the obvious physical and psychological pain and suffering associated with an amputation, many individuals who endure an amputation lose the ability to earn the same wages they were making before the accident. Many of these individuals are forced to retire from lifelong careers or jobs that have supported them and their families.

The entire law firm of Brais Law were extremely helpful in handling my snorkeling accident. The firm takes customer service to a new level, not only being readily available, but courteous, respectful, sympathetic, and empathetic. The firm, especially Keith and Karla, were always quick to return calls, offer updates, and provide guidance and information. There is no comparison when it comes to firms. If you need legal advice or representation, especially concerning maritime events, contact Keith and his crew first and save yourself a lot of time and heartache! J.C.
