Philadelphia Amputation Lawyers
Nationally-Renowned Personal Injury Attorneys in Pennsylvania
An amputation occurs when any body part is either wholly or partially lost as a result of an accident, assault, malpractice, negligence or product defect. Any amputation-whether of an arm, leg, foot, hand, finger, or toe-is a life altering event that causes the injured victim serious pain and challenges, including having to relearn how to perform the basic tasks of life.
Any person who has suffered an amputation is faced with extensive physical therapy and occupational therapy just to carry out the basic tasks of everyday living. Not only does an amputation cause physical injuries, it also causes emotional injuries, lost income or wages, expensive medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, as well as many other damages and hurdles.
The Beasley Firm's Philadelphia personal injury lawyers have experience handling amputation injuries in court-call (215) 866-2424 to speak with us about whether you have a valid claim.
Protecting Victims of Amputation Since 1958
If you have suffered an amputation injury, turn to The Beasley Firm today. Our amputation attorneys in Philadelphia have decades of experience representing amputation victims in different contexts, from workplace injuries to surgical malpractice. As a result, we understand the struggles and costs associated with relearning how to live life with a missing limb.
Our work has resulted in truly incredible achievements for our clients, including:
- 300+ verdicts & settlements larger than $1 million
- Over $2 billion in awards to our clients
- More than $100 million won for amputation victims alone
- The single largest personal injury verdict in Pennsylvania history
In a recent case, we won $16.25 million for a worker who lost both his legs in an accident involving a Caterpillar bulldozer that lacked suitable safety equipment. Our preparation involved more than $400,000 of resources that we invested in order to build an airtight claim-as a result, our opponents settled with our client rather than face our attorneys in court. That's the approach our team, led by Dr. James Beasley, Jr., takes with every amputation case we handle. Your stakes are far too high to entrust to a smaller firm or less experienced attorney.
In addition to our experienced Philadelphia personal injury attorneys, we also have on staff two physicians and three registered nurses, two of them who are certified emergency room trauma nurses who have spent thousands of hours in emergency rooms or intensive care units caring for patients with amputations just like the one you or a loved one had to undergo.
