Seeking Compensation for Amputation Injuries
While losing a limb is unimaginable to most people, the reality is that we face many everyday risks that can lead to injuries requiring amputation.

When seeking financial compensation for an amputation, one of the most important steps is calculating your current and future losses. Under Colorado law, accident victims are entitled to compensation for all of their accident-related losses; but, if you settle too soon, you will waive your right to claim any additional compensation. In other words, you only get one chance to assert your rights. As a result, it is critically important to work with an experienced legal team that is capable of not only (i) helping you understand the full extent of your harm, but also (ii) doing what it takes to make sure you receive just compensation.
In negligence cases involving amputation injuries, accident victims will commonly be entitled to financial compensation for:
- Outstanding and future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Other physical, financial and emotional losses
