Losing part of one’s body is both physically and psychologically devastating. Surgery may not be an option, or may not fully restore feeling and function. And yet, insurance companies and defense lawyers will often downplay such injuries or deny responsibility.
That is where an experienced personal injury lawyer like Mark Maritote can make a difference. Rather than accepting a fixed value for amputation injuries, he helps clients hold out for compensation that reflects their true losses and hardships.
We handle loss of limb cases in DuPage County, Cook County and throughout northern Illinois. Please call us for a free consultation at 630-830-9300 or toll free at 866-402-0174.
Our law firm has experience with auto accidents and other personal injury accidents such as slip-and falls, surgery errors and work accidents that resulted in amputation, surgical amputation or permanent impairment of bodily functions.
Insurance companies consult charts to determine what compensation to offer. A severed arm or hand is worth X dollars. A leg amputated above the knee is worth more than a lower leg amputation. And so on for fingers, toes, feet, earlobes and other body parts.
At Maritote Law we detail the actual impact and specific needs of our clients. We make sure that compensation covers:
We know that amputation victims often suffer phantom pains and sensations as though the limb was still there. Our goal is to document all the ways that an amputation due to an accident affects life for our client and his or her family. We are fully committed to justice, even if that means presenting the case to a jury.
