Amputation is one of the most serious injuries one can receive from a motor vehicle accident or other type of accident. Beyond the often lengthy recovery process, individuals who suffer amputation may also need to overcome the emotional trauma and psychological effects of disfigurement.
At Stevenson Whelton LLP, we understand the significant impact amputation, disfigurement or permanent scarring can have on someone's life. In addition to helping you or your loved one seek compensation for medical treatment, we are committed to seeking full and fair compensation for the emotional effects your injury has caused.
"We could all feel the true concern, compassion and interest [you showed] in M's story. You allowed her to provide her complete story and feelings she had gone through. It was so comforting to realize that you listened to all the facts and did not rush M in her review. [...] We would definitely recommend you and the firm to any of our friends or acquaintances." — M.O.
Supportive Lawyers for Disfigurement Claims Serving Oakville, Toronto, Vaughan and Oshawa
Ontario personal injury law categorizes amputation and disfigurement as catastrophic injuries because of the lifelong impact they can have on victims' lives. Beyond the initial medical treatment and rehabilitation you may require — which can be extensive — the loss of a limb could limit your ability to do your job, or perhaps require you to seek another profession, for example. Our personal injury amputation lawyers will seek maximum compensation to which you are entitled for:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Costs associated with prosthetics, if applicable to your case
- Loss of wages during recovery
- Loss of opportunity, if warranted
- Occupational therapy and/or physical therapy
- Vocational counselling or psychological counselling, if needed
Our firm regularly works with qualified medical and rehabilitative experts, psychiatrists and counsellors to assist our clients' cases. Whatever the nature of your injury, we seek to help you obtain the resources and support you need to recover and move forward.
