The loss of a limb can be a devastating and life changing event. It may prevent you from working in the future or, at least mean that you need to consider making some changes in your career. It can also mean that you need to modify your home and even your vehicle to ensure that you can continue with a good quality of life, and you may need to rely on third party help and assistance with daily tasks and with things like shopping. Stockslegal can help you claim compensation if you have suffered the loss of a limb due to an accident that was not your fault.
Impact On Your Life
Losing a limb will have a huge impact on a person’s life. Not only will it be emotionally and psychologically difficult, because of the permanent disability, but it will most likely alter the way that you have to live your life. Even the loss of a finger can be devastating. With any loss of limb you are likely to have to have modifications made to your vehicle, your home, and many of the items that you use on a daily basis.
There will be some tasks that you simply cannot perform at all and there will be those where you may require the help of a carer or other professional to assist. This will inevitably mean that you will have additional costs at a time when your salary is more than likely going to suffer. To help combat a reduction in wages combined with an increase in the cost of living you should consider seeking compensation from those that were responsible for your injury.
Road Traffic Accidents
Road traffic accidents are a common cause of a loss of limb or amputation. While people in cars are often protected from such trauma it is, unfortunately, cyclists, pedestrians, and motorcyclists, that are at the greatest risk of amputation when they have been involved in a road traffic accident. If this has happened to you and the accident was not your fault then you should consider compensation to be your right.
Accidents At Work
If you work around dangerous machinery then there is a very real risk of losing a limb if your employer does not live up to their legal responsibility of providing you with a safe working environment. While there may be some degree of potential risk, it is down to your employer to protect you from that risk. As well as considering working practices they should also look at effective and efficient training combined with the use of safety equipment and safety items to help ensure that the risk of accident is minimal at best. A failure to do this means that anybody that suffers an industrial injury may be able to claim compensation from them.
