Qualified Amputation Lawyer in Toronto
At Grillo Law, we have helped many victims of accidents who’ve had to undergo an amputation receive maximum compensation for their injuries. Amputations don’t just have a physical consequence, they come with a psychological impact that changes the person’s life forever. It is not only a catastrophic injury but a devastating event that needs the best catastrophic injury lawyer in Toronto to secure the compensation that victims and their families are entitled to and need. In severe accidents, amputations may occur at the scene of the accident. In many cases, an amputation is done as part of treatment after the accident.
The Different Types of Amputation
There are generally two types of amputations: major and minor amputations. Major amputations include knee disarticulation, below and above-knee amputations, amputation of the forearm, amputation above the elbow, hip, or shoulder disarticulation. Minor amputations include partial foot amputation, ankle disarticulation, and amputation of digits.
Doctors often resort to amputation if there is a severe injury to the limbs or when all efforts to save a limb have failed. When an amputation is done after a sudden traumatic event such as a car accident, it can result in significant limitations. Amputees often experience pain, burning, itchiness and other negative sensations, a feeling commonly described as a phantom limb (the feeling of sensations in a limb that has been removed as if it was still attached to the body).
What to Do After a Catastrophic Injury
In Ontario personal injury law, once an arm, leg or joint is amputated, the injury is considered a catastrophic impairment. Victims of catastrophic injuries are eligible for greater benefits compared to non-catastrophic injury cases. For instance, you may be eligible for medical rehabilitation and attendant care benefit payments of up to $1,000,000. With the help of our catastrophic injury lawyer in Toronto, you may receive caregiver benefits, income replacement benefits, and housekeeping and home maintenance benefits you require.
