Mr. Quackenbush is a Fort Lauderdale Amputation Lawyer who helps the catastrophically injured. Limb amputations are undoubtedly catastrophic injuries. The loss of an arm or a leg can drastically affect the quality of a person’s life. Mr. Quackenbush helps to compensate his clients for the loss of their old way of life.
Limb amputations can include the loss of an arm or a leg (or both). A person can undergo single amputations or bilateral amputations (e.g., amputations of both arms or both legs). In worse case scenarios, a person may undergo amputations of all four limbs.
Limbs may be amputated due to all sorts of reasons. Amongst these are accidents. When a person’s arms or legs are injured to the point that they will not be able to be used again, they may be amputated. Additionally, if a person experiences paralysis in a limb, the limb may wind up being amputated.

Limbs may also be amputated when they have experienced infection. After all, infections (such as gangrene) are generally progressive. This means that they become worse with time. In certain situations, limb infections have progressed to the point where, if the limb isn’t amputated, the situation could become life-threatening. In that situation, the limb may be amputated in order to save the person’s life.
Limb amputation may also be required after medical malpractice or doctor/hospital/nurse/nursing negligence. For example, if you develop an infection after a surgical procedure, it may be required for your limb to be amputated.
If you’ve experienced a limb amputation, you may require extensive medical treatment and care in the future. This care can get quite expensive. If your amputation occurred due to the fault of another person or entity, then you are entitled to compensation for your future medical care.Much-Needed Assistance Provided by this South Florida Amputation Attorney
In order to determine the cost of that care, Mr. Quackenbush may hire an expert called a “life-care planner” to evaluate you and your medical condition and attempt to predict how much your care will cost in the future.
Additionally, if you’ve lost a limb, you may not be able to work in the future (or you may not be able to work as much or at the same job). As such, Mr. Quackenbush may hire a “vocational rehabilitation expert” to evaluate you and your job and attempt to determine how much work, if any, you’ll be able to do in the future and what type of work that will be. Mr. Quackenbush may also hire an expert called an “economist” to quantify how much money you’ll likely lose as a result of your inability to work or inability to work as much.
If your case goes to trial/Court, these experts will come into Court and testify on your behalf. Mr. Quackenbush will ask the Judge and Jury to award you compensation for these losses.Contact this Broward County Amputation Law Firm Today
