Legal Support After A Crush Or Amputation Injury
If one of your limbs has been crushed in an on-the-job accident, getting full workers’ compensation benefits is critical. Injuries like these may force you to pursue a new line of work, or you may never be able to work again.
Do not expect the workers’ compensation insurance company to be sympathetic. The insurance company’s goal is to minimize payments. You need an attorney on your side to help you get the benefits you need to move forward with your life. At Ayers, Whitlow & Dressler in Charlotte, we have been successfully resolving cases like yours since 1986.
What Caused The Crush Injury At Work?
Our lawyers are well-versed in the various dangers that can lead to a crush injury in the workplace. We have handled cases involving poorly maintained or defective machinery such as punch presses. We have represented construction workers, warehouse employees and others who have suffered crushed hands, fingers, feet and toes in work accidents. In these crush accidents, the damage to the limb may be so severe that the limb must be amputated.
Recovering Compensation For Prosthetics And Other Medical Expenses
We understand that you may be overwhelmed thinking of all the expenses you are going to have to deal with because of the loss of a limb or its use. You have likely already missed work and may be struggling to make ends meet. You may not be able to return to your job. We take great care to maximize wage loss benefits.
Then there are the medical expenses. There was the emergency room visit. There may be future surgeries scheduled, not to mention physical therapy. And there are often-overlooked expenses like the cost of prosthetic limbs. We do not overlook any expenses.
We carefully review every case for all opportunities for compensation. Depending on the situation, you may have more than just a workers’ compensation claim: You may also be able to pursue compensation through a personal injury claim.
