Major Injury Lawsuits May Be
Eligible for Lawsuit Funding
Mar 16, 2010
Many people get into car accidents or other types of accidents and get hurt. In most cases the injuries that they receive are considered to be minor injuries. Bumps, contusions, and the like are often not worth a lawsuit over (unless you’re trying to get funds to pay for repair to your vehicle, of course). But then there are some instances in which someone is involved in an accident and suffers a major injury. Major injuries are basically classified as something that changes your life in a big way, and one of the most common types of major injuries are amputations.
An amputation is considered to be any time that a physician or surgeon needs to cut off an appendage in order for you to survive. This would mean cutting off anything from a finger to an entire arm or leg. Amputations vary depending on the severity of the injury. An amputation of the leg, for instance, could be just up to the ankle, or the knee, or could be up to the hip bone. The higher the amputation is, quite often, the harder life is to adjust to after the surgery.
There are a number of reasons why an amputation would be necessary after an accident. In some cases you may find that you are dealing with a crush injury after an automobile accident. Crush injuries often mean that the bone can’t heal correctly, and if it can’t heal, the person would be in extreme pain for the rest of their life or may even suffer from infection of the bone, which is why an amputation would be necessary.
Quite often amputations are necessary due to an accident that you may have at work. These accidents often frequently occur at places that have large machines. Many times people believe the machines to be shut off when they’re not, and that’s when accidents can easily occur.
Lawsuits and Funding
When you’re dealing with an amputation due to an accident that was not your fault, you may want to engage the services of a lawyer as soon as possible. A lawyer may be able to start the legal proceedings so that they can be finished that much faster. Most lawyers who specialize in injury lawsuits work on a contingency basis, only making money if they win your case, but there is still the fact that, after you have an amputation, you may have a mountain of medical debts and you may not be able to go back to work right off.
Lawsuit funding is one way to help you to be able to get the funds that you may need while your case is working its way through the court system. This type of funding can help you to pay off your medical debts and can help you to pay your monthly bills while you’re waiting for your settlement check to arrive or for the case to go through the system.
