Amputee Victims and Financial Recovery

If you have lost a limb in a serious car accident or motorcycle accident, you may be wondering what’s next. After the extensive surgeries and treatment, and piling medical bills, you may be concerned about how you will live your life, much less pay off all of your bills. For those who have suffered an amputation injury, their lives are forever altered.

An amputation injury occurs when the victim loses a limb, finger, or toe. These injuries are often sustained either as the result of a catastrophic auto accident or after the accident and during a medical procedure to save the life of the victim. While car accident victims can and do suffer the loss of a limb, pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists are especially susceptible to losing a limb, even in low speed collisions. Without tons of steel to protect them, these innocent men and women are often subjected to serious injuries when involved in a crash.

Recorded Statements: Do I Have to Give One?

If you’re injured in an auto accident, a slip and fall, or bitten by a vicious dog, and you report the incident to your insurance company, you will likely be asked to make a statement. These statements are taken — and recorded — by insurance companies in nearly every case.

We are often asked whether a recorded statement is really necessary and whether an accident victim needs to give one. Our advice: remember that you are being recorded and to speak with your experienced accident attorney before giving any statements to any insurance company — yours or the other party’s.

When Truck Accidents Cause Fires

What happens when a large truck or big rig crashes and starts a fire, injuring innocent victims? Who is responsible for the damage caused?
