Charlotte Amputation Injury Lawyers
Charlotte Lawyers with a Track Record
The loss of a limb or another body part is one of the most devastating types of injuries that an individual can sustain. The harm extends well beyond the physical, and presents incredible challenges to your mental, emotional and financial well-being. After the loss, you may not be able to go back to the same job that you were working and your life will require accommodations in order for you to thrive.
When the loss of limb is the result of someone else’s negligence, it is important that you take action as soon as possible. At Charles G. Monnett, III & Associates, we have experience with these injuries and have the utmost compassion for our clients. Whether the loss of limb is the result of a car or motorcycle accident, medical malpractice or a workplace injury, we understand the sensitive nature of these cases and work closely with our clients to see that their needs are being addressed.
Some of our recent successes in amputation injury cases include:
- $8,000,000 confidential settlement for an infant with bilateral leg amputations following improper placement of a femoral line; case was resolved in association with former US Senator John R. Edwards
- $1,840,517 recovery for a pedestrian who suffered a traumatic amputation of her leg when a bus crashed into a parked truck, causing the truck to jump the curb and strike the pedestrian as she was entering a restaurant
- $12,750,000 settlement for a patient with a bowel injury following pelvic surgery which led to sepsis and multiple amputations
Every case is unique and must be evaluated on its particular merits. Prior results do not guarantee similar outcomes.
Common Issues Amputees Face
Individuals who have had a body part amputated often face more issues than just how to cope with the medical treatment of the amputation.
Amputees often must deal with:
- Retraining (in order to work)
- Wound care
- Home modification
- Vehicle modification
All of these issues require time and money. While an individual may have the time, he or she may be struggling with the money, as lost wages from the inability to work and medical bills may be impacting the victim. Our firm understands these issues and aggressively pursues compensation on your behalf so you can get the assistance you need and the support you deserve.
