Amputation Lawsuits in Nashville, Tennessee
When someone loses a limb, medical treatment doesn’t end with the amputation. In addition to rehabilitation, you may require continual treatment for years down the road. There’s no telling how long it will take or how much it will cost, but your attorney will work with your doctor to try to assess the cost of future treatment in order to obtain a timely settlement.
For that reason, you need to find an attorney who won’t rush your settlement. Make sure your present and your future are accounted for in the determination of your personal injury settlement. Find a lawyer with the experience, reputation and track record you can trust.
Attorney Mitch Grissim has handled personal injury and amputation cases for 36 years. He’s a Board Certified attorney who has helped thousands of injured clients recover the compensation necessary to move forward in their lives. And he can help you, too.
A Nashville native, Mr. Grissim can be found in his downtown office almost every day. At Mitch Grissim & Associates, our doors are always open and you can always reach us with questions or concerns.
Amputations and Work-Related Accidents
More than anywhere else, most accidents that result in amputations occur in the workplace. Working with heavy equipment full-time means some people are at almost constant risk of injury. We handle construction accidents as well as workers’ compensation claims. Of course, this type of amputation would be covered by workers’ compensation laws.
Other types of amputation cases are more difficult in that it is hard to predict the future and know what your costs will be. Our team will work with your doctor to determine future medical treatment and the costs thereof.
Loss of Future Potential Earnings
Your settlement may also depend in large part upon how your career has been affected by the amputation. For example, a lost finger would be worth a lot more to a concert pianist than it would to a landscaper.
