When you lose a limb, medical expenses, lost wages, and permanent changes to ability will all need to be considered as you seek fair compensation. Unfortunately, most insurance companies won’t even begin to cover a portion of what you are due. In fact, many insurance companies have a set amount at which they value a limb. Anything beyond that is not likely to even be considered – and you can’t rely on the negligent party to cover the difference. This is just one reason you need an experienced amputation attorney on your side as soon as possible after your accident.
In the short video below, South Bay personal injury lawyer Heather Baker Dobbs discusses why you need an experienced attorney and how Kirtland & Packard can help you get the full compensation you deserve. To schedule your free consultation at our Redondo Beach office, please call 310-536-1000 today.
