Amputation and Disfigurement

Amputations and disfigurement can result from all sorts of incidents, including sports accidents, motor vehicle collisions and medical malpractice. Because they are both serious and permanent, amputations and disfigurements are considered catastrophic injuries. This means that you may be entitled to receive up to $2.5 to $3.5 million in no-fault benefits because we must calculate not only the current costs and expenses of your treatment, but your lifelong losses as well.

These losses are often very specialised. Although, emotionally, amputation and disfigurement are traumatic for anyone, the loss of a limb may have a very different economic impact depending on whether you are an accountant or a professional athlete. Losing a limb that affects your mobility may also result in all sorts of difficulties beyond your ability to work.

Similarly, different kinds of disfigurement have different visual and emotional impacts. Disfigurement may involve not only cosmetic damage, but also painful scarring that affects your mobility or causes pain. Scarring can also affect your ability to socialize, enjoy your life and even get or keep a job.
