Loss of Limb Compensation
Philadelphia Amputation Injury Attorneys
When it comes to personal injury or workers’ compensation claims, loss of limb may be physical or functional. This means that you could receive compensation for a lost limb whether it was traumatically/surgically amputated or if you lost use of the limb due to paralysis/nerve damage. In either scenario, you have truly lost use of the limb and may experience a number of challenges in attempting to return to work or perform normal, day-to-day activities.
The recovery of maximum compensation is crucial in a case involving amputation or loss of limb. Unfortunately, the insurance company may try to offer an unfairly low settlement, delay payment, or even deny your claim altogether. Our Philadelphia amputation injury attorneys are here to protect your interests and help you get the money you deserve. We have over 35 years of collective experience to apply to your claim, and we take a compassionate, one-on-one approach that can bring you much comfort in these difficult times.
How Much Compensation Do You Get?
The amount of compensation that you can receive for losing a limb will certainly depend on the circumstances surrounding the case. If you go through workers’ compensation for a workplace accident, you may be entitled to around $390,000 for an amputated arm or leg. You can get compensated an average of $300,000 for the loss of a hand or foot.
If you are pursuing a personal injury claim for the loss of a limb against a negligent part, how much compensation you are able to recover will depend on numerous factors. These include:
If you lost a limb in a car accident from a drunk driver or an otherwise negligent driver, you will need assistance paying for the costs associated with the case, especially from the hospital stays, surgeries, and rehabilitation expenses. Our legal team can help you pursue compensation from an amputation for all damages, including:

"I have had the privilege of connecting with Kevin Marciano on many matters as an attorney. Additionally, I have referred his firm multiple people who were in need of his services. He has obtained great results for these referred individuals and through the entire process has been very accessible and calming."
"They are experts at what they do and will go to battle for their clients if that's what it takes to get the best outcome. If someone in my family was injured, this is the first place I would turn."
"I would highly recommend anyone within this practice. They are knowledgeable, respectful, and helpful."
"After been paralyzed from the neck down because of a drunk driver, Kevin Marciano was my last hope. Kevin fought very hard for me and kept me advised of every aspect of the case. Because of the settlement, I am living in a home that I purchased rather than in a nursing home. I have some of my life back."
"Kevin and Pat represented me in my fall off a ladder. The money I received will let me live in a place where I can move and get around. Also, while I am still badly injured, I know I will not have to worry about money again."
Kevin and Patrick were amazing to work with and a God send to us in our time of need. They especially had to work even harder during COVID-19 to make a safe way to put our troubles to a smooth and safe finish. They were caring and understanding to our personal situation in the health and well being of our son who was hit by a car. This recommendation was priceless. We are most fortunate that our son's life was spared, but their help to give him back his life will never be forgotten! Thank you Kevin and Patrick and the rest of your team!
