Of all the different types of injuries you can sustain, an amputation is probably among the most traumatic of them. Amputation refers to the loss of a limb, be it via surgery or trauma.

If you’ve suffered a work injury, don’t worry – you have rights, and we can help.
Workplace injuries are more commonplace than many people imagine. This is especially true in industries like construction. However, trauma can happen in just about any field. If you’ve lost a limb in a workplace accident, you might be wondering what step you should take next. That’s understandable – this kind of unthinkable injury is incredibly overwhelming to experience. That’s why it’s vital to have a team that understands the law.

Amputation and Workers’ Compensation
If you’ve suffered the loss of a limb as a result of a workplace accident, you should reach out to an attorney as quickly as possible. This is especially important as your employer’s insurance adjusters may reach out to you in an attempt to get you to settle. An insurance representative might even call or visit you while you’re recovering in the hospital – remember that you are not obligated to speak with them.
An adjuster’s primary goal is to ensure that their company doesn’t pay more than necessary. They won’t be concerned with making sure that you receive a fair settlement. Alex Bonilla, on the other hand, will be focused on upholding your rights and making sure that you receive the fair compensation to which you are legally entitled.
