Amputation Accident Attorney in Houston, Texas

Unlike other injuries, an amputation is permanent. Furthermore, the costs associated with an amputation can be devastating, causing you or your family to worry about medical expenses and other related costs for years. The good news is, you don’t have to bear that financial, physical, and emotional burden alone.

When I started my own firm, Jose Orihuela, Attorney at Law, I did so with the vision of helping accident victims with both immediate and long-term legal issues that they may be facing when dealing with the at-fault party. Whether that is your employer, a worker’s compensation board, disability agents, or the insurance company. With legal representation, you can get the leverage you need to pursue compensation for your losses and protect your rights.

Don’t take on the insurance companies by yourself. Let me and my team help. Contact a personal injury lawyer with experience taking on amputation cases in Houston, Texas for a free case review.

Industrial and Catastrophic Accidents

Thousands of workers are employed in industrial and construction fields across the Houston area. As such, amputations occur more often than they should, especially in volatile work environments such as oil fields, factories, labs, and construction sites. When they happen, they can turn you and your family’s world upside down.

My law firm has worked with dozens of clients, navigating a number of cases related to industrial and catastrophic accidents. We understand the long-term challenges that clients face when suddenly losing a limb. As such, we review special considerations for amputees and consider the full extent of all of your damages, including:

  • Emergency medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation and ongoing maintenance
  • Prosthetic limb or other medical devices
  • Full or partial loss of income or disability
  • Adjusted living expenses (home remodeling)
  • Any additional pain and suffering from the accident

In addition, you may experience noneconomic or punitive damages. For instance, you may need to seek counseling due to depression or emotional distress associated with your injury. You may also be entitled to compensation for loss of consortium or loss of enjoyment of life.

What if Someone Else Caused Your Injury?

If you suffered a catastrophic injury that resulted in the loss of a limb or partial amputation, you owe it to yourself to establish who was at fault so that party can be held responsible for their actions. My law firm can work with you to identify the at-fault party and file a claim against their insurance company so that you can receive the compensation you need to cover your medical expenses.

Furthermore, we can estimate all of your financial losses and other damages so that you can understand the value of your case. Our law firm can act on your behalf to build a strong case and take on the insurance company, employer, property owner or any other party involved. We’ll manage your entire case from start to finish — allowing you to focus on your recovery.
