Amputations occur when an extremity is seriously damaged and causing harm to the rest of the body. This could be due to an infection or disease that may spread throughout the body if not amputated. You may be faced with an amputation after a serious accident, usually after your extremity is crushed beyond repair. Our dedicated Amputation Accident Attorneys can represent you today.
Bye, Goff & Rohde is a personal injury law firm representing clients faced with a serious injury after an accident. There are other options besides claiming social security insurance. Yet, many people suffering from a serious injury are so overwhelmed and drained emotionally that it can be hard to look past the accident.

Causes of Amputations
Amputation can occur after:
- Auto accidents
- Workplace injuries
- Burns and explosions
- Serious slip and fall accidents
- Nursing home neglect
- Child injuries
- Jet ski and boating accidents
- Snowmobiling accidents and frostbite
Amputation most commonly occurs to your arms or your legs. If you have lost a leg, you may need a prosthetic leg, a wheelchair, or a cane. You may need to take time off of work, or may not be able to go back to your old position in some instances. You will most likely need extensive rehabilitation which can be time-consuming and emotionally draining. However, don’t give up.
You may be eligible for compensation to pay for damages such as:
- Medical expenses
- Hospitalization and specialist visits
- Specialized equipment
- Surgical expenses
- Loss of income and protected income
- Physical rehabilitation and therapy
- Loss of quality of life
