Miami Amputation Injury Attorney
Serious Injuries Resulting in Loss of Limbs
Amputation injuries are catastrophic injuries involving the loss of a limb or body part. While some amputations may be medically necessary due to severe trauma, disease, or infection, others are caused by the traumatic accidents themselves.
However they’re caused, amputation injuries are emotionally devastating, and can result in extensive medical bills that threaten a family’s financial well-being. If someone else’s negligence is to blame for your amputation injury, you may have the right to seek compensation against the at-fault party.
At Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen, our attorneys can help you navigate the steps toward justice.

What Is An Amputation Injury?
Amputation injuries refer to the loss of a limb, digit, or body part. They may be caused by the injury itself (i.e. crush injuries, degloving, etc.), or result from medical intervention and surgical procedures involving certain diseases, infections, or severely damaged limbs that cannot be saved. Common causes include:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Defective products
- Construction and workplace accidents
- Explosions, fires, and burn injuries
- Medical malpractice
- Boating accidents
Can I Hold Someone Responsible?
Generally, victims who suffer preventable harm and losses have the right to seek monetary compensation from the responsible party. Depending on the facts of a case, this may be:
- A negligent property owner who failed to address hazardous conditions they knew or should have known about;
- The party responsible for placing a defective product into the stream of commerce (i.e. a manufacturer, distributor, or retailer);
- A negligent third-party (not your employer) responsible for causing an accident on a worksite (i.e. a negligent contractor on a construction site);
- Negligent nurses, doctors, and other health care providers who failed to meet the applicable standard of care when treating your injuries or attending to post-surgical aftercare.
How Much is My Case Worth?
The value of your personal injury lawsuit is entirely case-specific. Although you can estimate potential value with the help of an attorney, it is difficult to assess how much compensation you’re entitled to in the early stages of a case. This is because you may not yet know the prognosis of your injury, the scope of its impact on your life, and the far-reaching repercussions it may have on your future.
At Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen, we work closely with relevant experts and medical professionals to assess both the damages our clients have already incurred, and the losses they’re expected to face in the future. This includes economic and non-economic losses such as:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages and lost future income
- Diminished earning capacity / disability
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional pain and suffering
