Representing Clients in Loss of Limb Lawsuits in Louisiana
Nearly 2 million Americans are missing a limb. Over half of these lost limbs are the result of a traumatic accident such as a car crash, an explosion, or a medical error. Hospital costs associated with amputation exceed $8.3 billion annually. If you lost your arm or leg in a tragic accident, let us help. We understand that losing a limb has serious mental, physical and emotional repercussions. This injury may result in job loss, social isolation, phantom pain, loss of enjoyment of life and more.
If you or someone you know has lost a limb as a result of an accident, we can help. You need to call our firm and get professional representation. Joseph H. Jolissaint is committed to aggressively representing clients who are injured in accidents at the office or on the job. Loss of limb accidents can happen from an explosion at a plant, a machinery malfunction at a factory, a car collision in a company-owned vehicle, a construction accident, and more. No matter what the reason, we are here to help you get the compensation you need.
Get Compensation for Future Medical Costs
At Joseph H. Jolissaint, we understand that when you lose a limb, the medical costs don’t stop. There are years of follow-up appointments, medications, and therapy that need to take place. You shouldn’t have to deal with these costs. Instead, you should be able to seek compensation with the help of an attorney at the firm.
Seeking Payment from an Employer
If you were injured in a workplace accident and lost a limb, you need to report this to your employer immediately and file a workers’ compensation claim. Normally, payments for loss of limb are generous because of the life-altering implications of the injury. If you do not receive a satisfactory settlement, or if the insurance company disputes your claim, get us involved.
Our team wants to help you improve your life after such a devastating injury.
