Loss of Limbs Injury Attorney
Recovering Compensation for Amputations and Lost Limbs
The experience of losing a body part can be as scarring psychologically as it is physically. More than the pain of the initial accident, victims must cope with the trauma and outright shock of discovering they have lost a limb.
If you or a loved one suffered injuries in an accident caused by negligence, and if that injury led to the amputation of a body part, you need and deserve to be compensated.
At Glotzer & Kobren, P.A. in Boca Raton, Florida, our lawyers provide experienced, aggressive and personalized services for each client.

Amputations Affect Your Entire Life
The loss of an arm or leg will affect every aspect of your day-to-day existence. You have to adjust to life with a prosthetic limb, and you may not be able to participate in many of the same activities as you once did. You may also suffer chronic pain from phantom limb syndrome.
Anyone who suffers an amputation injury is eligible to recover compensatory damages that are meant to address all aspects of the injury, including damages related to:
• Medical Expenses & Lost Wages
• Lost Earning Capacity (if applicable)
• Loss of Enjoyment of Life
• Pain & Suffering
• Loss of a Limb
How Did the Loss of Your Limb Affect Your Career?
As mentioned above, your settlement will be based in part on your lost earnings capacity — that is, the manner in which your career is negatively affected by the amputation.
For example, if you have a desk job, your career may not be significantly impeded by the loss of a foot.
But if you are a classically trained pianist, even the loss of a pinky finger can stop your career completely in its tracks.
At Glotzer & Kobren, P.A., our attorneys can represent clients who suffered amputations resulting from any kind of accident, including truck, motorcycle and car accidents.
