Compensation for amputation and disfigurement
There are many types of incidents that can result in amputation and/or disfigurement, including, but not limited to: motor vehicle accidents, sports accidents, and medical malpractice.
Not only are these serious, but they are also permanent. When a person suffers from an amputation or disfigurement, he or she will be forced to change their life in a number of ways.
If another party is responsible for your injury, there is a chance you could receive compensation. This is something many people consider as they are aware of the economic impact an injury like this can have on their life.
No two accidents are identical. This is why the compensation for amputation and disfigurement is not the same from case to case. Some of the details that factor into calculating compensation include:
— Time required for rehab and recovery
— Number of surgeries needed
— Effects on your personal and professional life
— Mental counseling required
— Purpose of the limbs
— Number of limbs that have been affected
— Cost of adapting your home to suit your new lifestyle
There is no simple way to determine how much compensation a person should receive as the result of an amputation or disfigurement. This is considered on a case by case basis, based on the details surrounding the incident.
