We Understand the Effects of an Amputation Injury
As Ottawa personal injury lawyers, we often help people who have been in a motor vehicle and other accidents who’ve undergone an emergency amputation. Sometimes amputations occur at the scene of the accident, while other times a person’s injury is so severe that medical amputation is required. In either case, we understand that your life has changed forever.
An amputation injury is a catastrophic injury from both a human and legal standpoint.
According to Ontario personal injury law, the amputation of an arm, leg, joint, or digit which causes impairment is considered a catastrophic injury. This entitles you to greater Ontario Accident Benefits insurance compensation: you may be eligible for enhanced lifetime medical rehabilitation and attendant care services up to a combined amount of $1,000,000 or up to $6,000/month over your lifetime. Our lawyers can also help you receive maximum compensation for long-term housekeeping services, your family members’ visiting expenses as well as getting a health professional assigned to you to manage your care needs.
We know that an amputation injury is life-altering, let us help you rebuild your life.
We know how difficult living with an amputation can be and we’re here to help you get access to any and all essential services such as extended medical care, rehabilitation, housekeeping, counselling etc. We’ll also help you secure maximum Ontario insurance accident benefits compensation should your injury render you unable to work. Amputation injuries are permanent, and we care that you receive the appropriate benefits to live a long and comfortable life after your injury.
Our Ottawa injury lawyers understand, we care, we’re here to help and our track record proves it.
Thank you very much for advocating on my behalf. During the past 2 years I have come to appreciate the amazing work you and your colleagues do to help people during a very vulnerable time in their lives. – GC, Ottawa
