Nearly two million people in the United States live with limb loss and there are approximately 185,000 new amputations each year. In Ohio, amputations often stem from injuries sustained on the job, with more than 5,000 workers affected in the past decade.
Adjusting to life as an amputee means having to relearn how to live and deal with new challenges. If you have lost a limb, you must acquire new skills to function in daily life. In addition to coping with the physical challenges, amputees also face a number of psychological repercussions.

Handling these issues should not be something you have to face alone. If you have suffered an amputation injury, our experienced personal injury lawyers can help you to recover damages for your medical costs, pain and suffering, and other losses.
