Amputations and the legal repercussions

While a large majority of amputations in the United States are related to vascular disease such as diabetes, a substantial number of amputations are due to a catastrophic injury. Whether it is the loss of a finger or lower limb, an amputation can make the smallest of tasks burdensome. California court systems may compensate those who have undergone amputations for various medical expenses and physical and emotional suffering.  

Are catastrophic injuries treated differently than in the past?

If you or someone you know suffered a catastrophic injury in California in the past, the chances of that injury leading to death were quite high. However, thanks to medical advancements, chances of surviving such injuries has increased, along with long-term care options. According to Business Insurance, in some situations, injuries that once would leave a worker disabled for life are now treatable and the person may even be able to return to work.
