New York Amputation Injury

A New York car accident amputation injury attorney is there to help you when you have been hurt in a vehicle accident involving a motor cycle, a truck or a traditional passenger vehicle.

All of these situations can lead to a need for amputation which can be shocking for a victim who may not suspect that their injuries are as severe as they are. Getting the support of a lawyer instantly is critical for figuring out a path forward after your injury claim and it is essential to find someone who can be trusted with your amputation case.

A car accident amputation injury attorney in New York is a resource you can turn to over the duration of your claim to get your questions answered. A car accident amputation injury attorney in New York will be someone that you must be able to place utmost confidence in. Surgical or traumatic removal of a limb is a very devastating and overwhelming experience.

This debilitating event has physical, emotional and financial repercussions that can affect the victim's self-esteem, psychological state, quality of life, earning capacity and independence. Furthermore, the victim may also be required to go through counseling, purchase expensive prosthetic limbs or leave their job forever. The repercussions of an amputation incident may continue to affect the victim and his or her family members for many years to come.

If you or someone you know has already lost a foot, arm, hand, leg, finger, thumb or toe in an accident or if one of your limbs had to be surgically removed because of catastrophic injuries caused by another person's negligence, you could be entitled to compensation for your lost earnings, medical bills and beyond. Whether it was a big rig or a motorcycle that caused your injuries, you deserve to have an attorney at your side working through your claim with you.

Another person may have insurance that you can tap into in order to pay your medical bills, and these bills can be extensive if your injuries are severe. This is one big reason why so many injured parties get help from a lawyer they can trust.

You need the free legal consultation provided by an experienced attorney to figure out how your limb amputation has affected your life. Limb amputations can have multiple causes including medical errors, defective products and vehicle accidents. One of the most common ways for an amputation incident to occur following a vehicle crash is when a car crumbles at the point of impact, trapping the driver or passenger's body part inside.

In pedestrian accidents, a person can be pulled underneath a vehicle where their limbs are crushed or run over. Medical malpractice may also play a role in amputation accidents and amputation injuries can also occur in industrial settings, involving heavy machinery, power tools or falling objects. Clothing can also be caught in between pieces of machinery, leading to severe injuries.

When an amputation can be directly tied to someone's negligence or recklessness, the victim may have a legal claim against one or more parties. It is important to retain a New York car accident amputation injury lawyer to figure out who could possibly be held accountable for the injuries you sustained and what is necessary to file a legal claim to get maximum compensation.

You have enough to worry about, to attend your medical appointments and follow up on protecting your best interests and moving forward. Entrust your case to an experienced attorney who will not give up on you.

Client Reviews
When my mom, who is suffering from dementia, faced a slip and fall personal injury lawsuit, I contacted Stephen Bilkis of the Law Offices of Stephen Bilkis & Associates. Not only did he provide a strategy for defending the claim, he also advised me on steps to take to avoid future personal liability. Whether you are the defendant or plaintiff in an injury case, I highly recommend Mr. Bilkis. S.M.
From the very first phone call to Stephen Bilkis' office, the staff was extremely polite and helpful in assisting me. Mr. Bilkis was honest and upfront with me from the beginning in what he projected the outcome of my case would be; in the end we got better results than either of us anticipated. He was very genuine and compassionate in understanding my situation and how this legal matter could effect not only myself but my family as well. I highly recommend this law firm and will most definitely continue using them for any future legal needs. Jarrett
I had my first encounter with Mr. Stephen Bilkis three years ago over the phone. He and his staff have been nothing but courtesy and professional. Their hard work ended with a large six-figure settlement for my case. I would highly recommend you contact his office. I want to give a special THANK YOU to Ms. Tricia Krapf. She always made me feel like a priority and was always kind and professional over the phone and email. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal representation. Celesta
