If you or a loved one has suffered an injury that required amputation in a trucking accident, it is absolutely critical that you exercise your right to seek just compensation. The medical costs of an amputation alone can easily exceed $500,000, and that does not account for the loss of income, pain and suffering, and countless other losses that come with becoming an amputee.
At Morrow & Sheppard LLP, we are committed to helping truck accident victims in the Houston area win just compensation. We understand the severe consequences that come with an amputation, and we know how important it is for amputees and their families to secure the compensation they deserve. Our attorneys have the experience and resources necessary to take on the trucking companies and their defense lawyers, and we can fight to secure the largest possible settlement or verdict for your losses.
Each year, Texas’ hospitals perform thousands of amputations. The number of amputations has increased substantially in the past decade and, unfortunately, the cost of these already-expensive procedures has skyrocketed as well. Nearly half of all amputees lose their limbs following trucking collisions and other traumatic accidents.
The vast majority of amputations in Texas are performed on the lower limbs. This is consistent with the types of injuries commonly sustained in commercial truck accidents. Experts conservatively estimate the cost of a single lower-limb amputation at more than half a million dollars, with the costs increasing substantially for more-complicated procedures. Again, this is just the estimate for the cost of medical treatment. It is not unusual for a victim’s total losses following an injury resulting in amputation to climb into the millions of dollars.
