Amputation Claims in Georgia

Workplace injuries are a common occurrence in the state of Georgia; for some jobs, such as construction or farm work, they are even expected. However, though most injuries are minor and involve little to no recovery time, others can have life-changing consequences. Such an injury is the loss of a limb.

Not only is amputation painful and traumatic, but it can also lead to permanent difficulty or inability to continue working. Such catastrophic injuries also require a significant amount of treatment, which can lead to expensive medical bills, lost income from missed work, and immense stress and pain. This is why The Law Office of Arthur E. Snead, LLC was founded—to ensure that workplace accident victims receive enough compensation to take care of themselves and their families for the entire duration of the recovery process.

How Do Amputation Accidents Happen at Work?

According to a 2017 survey by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the U.S Department of Labor, amputation-related workplace injuries affected only about 0.5 out of every 10,000 U.S. workers (or 1 in 20,000).

However, while this data reflects the entire working population of the United States, people working in certain industries are at a much higher risk of amputation.

These industries include:

  • Agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting (1.4 amputations for every 10,000 workers)
  • Construction (1.4 amputations for every 10,000 workers)
  • Manufacturing (2.1 amputations per every 10,000 workers)

Amputations may occur due to a lack of training or supervision, a mechanical defect or malfunction, or as the consequence of a serious accident, like an explosion or falling object.

What Do Rehabilitation & Treatment Involve?

Treatment and recovery for an amputation victim differ depending on the limb or extremity removed. However, one common thread among amputees tends to be a lengthy and arduous recovery process.

The recovery process can consist of more than learning to use a prosthetic limb or how to walk again. Everyday tasks may have to be relearned, which by itself can require intense physical and/or occupational therapy. There is also the cost of counseling—losing a limb can lead to major trauma as well as a deep sense of loss. Altogether, such treatments may cost tens of thousands of dollars and last for many years. Even so, the victim may not be able to return to work, at least not in the same capacity.

Understanding the Emotional Impact of Amputation

While the physical consequences of an amputation are significant, it is important to recognize the emotional toll it can take on the injured individual. Coping with the loss of a limb can lead to feelings of grief, frustration, and even depression. At The Law Office of Arthur E. Snead, LLC, I am an experienced amputation attorney who understands the unique challenges that amputees face and will provide compassionate support throughout the legal process.

My team will work closely with you to:

  • Ensure you receive the necessary medical and psychological treatment
  • Advocate for your emotional well-being and quality of life
  • Help you access resources for counseling and support groups
  • Maximize your compensation to cover not only your physical damages but also the emotional distress caused by the amputation
