Lawyers for Personal Injury Victims in Cook County and Lake County
The loss of a limb or part of a limb is a disabling injury that has permanent physical and emotional effects on a person’s life.

Personal Injury Attorneys in Cook County for Amputation Victims
Amputation injuries can occur in a number of ways. It may be medically necessary to amputate a limb or finger as a result of:
- Auto accidents;
- Motorcycle crashes;
- Construction site accidents;
- Dog bites or animal attacks; and
- Illness or disease.
While loss of a limb may be essential to prevent further injury to the victim, the result is often a lifetime of difficulty and expensive medical care.
While some amputations are medically necessary, that is not always the case. The loss of a leg or arm may have been avoidable or unnecessary, adding to the already tragic circumstances of the situation. Errors or untimely treatment of serious injuries can result in the need to amputate and potential liability on the part of doctors and hospitals. Unnecessary amputations may occur due to medical malpractice, including as a result of:
- Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a condition;
- Failure to treat or incorrect treatment;
- Medical error, including mixed-up patient files; or
- Poor follow up care, resulting in infections or gangrene.
