Boston Amputations Lawyer
Demanding Accountability From Negligent People
The loss of a limb in a personal injury accident involves financial as well as emotional costs. When dealing with insurance companies in cases involving amputations, it's important to quantify medical costs, rehabilitation costs, medical equipment costs, and pain and suffering. At Nicole D Sullivan , in order to ensure our clients recover compensation proportional to their injuries, our personal injury lawyers work closely with medical economists, vocational trainers, and prosthetics experts. We explain to jurors the scope and nature of your injuries, ensuring they understand the practical and emotional effects involved in the loss of a limb. Since most amputations involve "ghost pain" after damage to the nerves and muscles involved, our attorneys humanize our clients and the pain they suffer in recovery from the loss of a hand, leg, arm, or foot.

Compensation for Pain and Suffering
The loss of a limb can have a significant psychological and emotional effect on someone, not to mention the physical pain involved. Insurance companies, however, may resist compensating someone for pain and suffering beyond a certain amount. Here, quantifying the psychological impact of a lost limb is important when an amputation takes away a person's ability to do certain things. For example, if a person can no longer participate in sports, play an instrument, or act with independence, the amount of pain and suffering is significant. Our attorneys work with medical economists and psychologists in order to quantify the pain and suffering involved in an amputation.
