Dallas Amputation Injury Attorneys

Billions Won by Loss-of-Limb Lawyers in Dallas

A construction superintendent was standing behind a safety fence while he oversaw a drilling project. The project involved a drilling auger that was attached to a crane. The crane collapsed on our client while he tried to release the drill. His injuries required the doctors to make an above-the-knee amputation, which meant the loss of his career. Our client didn’t have a desk job—construction work was his living. The loss of his leg created mental anguish, trauma, physical pain, and significant financial losses. Fortunately, he turned to Arnold & Itkin. Our Dallas amputation lawyers were able to recover the financial support he needed to move on from this tragic incident.

Our client was awarded $44 million—the largest award for an amputee victim in U.S. history.

Facts About Work-Related Amputation Injuries

Ultimately, amputations are a preventable occurrence in the workplace. When the cause of injury is often lack of safety equipment or poor training, it's an employer's responsibility to ensure worker safety. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) stated that their goal is to enforce safety regulations to hold employers responsible for not protecting their workers or not reducing instances of worker amputations.

  • For manufacturing industry workers, amputation causes more than 1,400 serious injuries a year.
  • In 2015, 2,600 amputations occurred nationwide—57% of them in the manufacturing industry.
  • OSHA said that amputations were most common in Arkansas, Dallas, Oklahoma, and Texas.
  • One of the common causes of amputation in the manufacturing industry is when workers operate machines without a proper safeguard. This is usually because they lack training.

Consequences of Amputation or Loss of Limb

The various consequences of amputation include the following:

  • Emotional trauma
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Fatigue or exhaustion
  • Infection
  • Loss of mobility and dexterity
  • Muscle contraction
  • Social isolation
  • Stump and phantom limb pain

Amputation FAQ

What Is An Amputation Injury?

An amputation is the partial or full removal of an exterior body part (finger, toe, arm, hand, or leg). Amputation may reduce an individual’s quality of life or prohibit them from adequately performing some of their previous job duties.

What Is the Impact of a Lost Limb?

The loss of a limb is an extremely traumatic experience, both physically and emotionally. A catastrophic injury like this can leave individuals in pain and anguish for years, and it can make it hard for them to make a living. Aside from that, the medical expenses can be insurmountable. Limb prosthetics can cost tens of thousands of dollars—not including physical therapy and the loss of income.

Studies show that amputees face an average cost of about $30,000 in hospital and professional treatments in addition to prosthetic costs. When including prosthetic, a patient’s life expenses increase to $403,000 on average. These costs don’t include counseling, emotional pain, and suffering, or the costs of finding a new career.

How Much Does Hiring a Dallas Amputation Injury Law Firm Cost?

Hiring an amputation lawyer costs nothing upfront. Since we work on contingency fees, we cover all costs of a case and only collect a payment if we secure results. Doing this makes our services available for everyone while also alleviating some of the financial pressure our clients are already facing.
