What Can You Expect to Recover When You’ve Lost a Limb in the Lone Star State?

The loss of a finger, toe, arm or leg can be devastating, making it difficult or impossible to do many of the things that previously brought meaning to your life. No amount of compensation can make you whole again, but you have the right to substantial damages to cover all your losses. What can you reasonably expect to get in a settlement for an amputation claim?

What Types of Accidents Commonly Lead to Amputation or Loss of Limb?

You may be at risk of amputation as a consequence of a wide range of accidents, including:

  • Motor vehicle collisions
  • Serious burns
  • The breakdown or malfunction of dangerous or defective products, including tools and equipment
  • Construction site accidents, such as falls from heights, falling objects, dangerous or defective tools or machines, and “caught-between” accidents
  • Work-related injuries

What Is the Average Settlement in Texas for Loss of Limb?

Let’s face it…every case is different, so identifying an average settlement is extremely difficult. You have the right to recover for:

  • Lost wages and income
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of companionship or consortium
  • Unreimbursed medical expenses
  • Physical and mental pain and suffering

The amount you can potentially recover will, of course, be based on the severity of your injuries. In addition, the damages you receive may be reduced if your own negligence or carelessness was a contributing factor in causing the accident/injury.
