Recoverable Damages after an Amputation
The following are the types of damages we can help you recover from a medical malpractice claim:
Economic losses are the monetary expenses you incurred due to your injuries. These include:
- Medical bills: The expenses you incurred for the medical treatment you needed. These can include your past and future medical expenses, physical therapy costs, medication costs, medical devices, and more.
- Lost wages: If you cannot return to the same occupation following your amputation, you can recover compensation for the wages and earning capacity you lost.
- Other economic losses: We can recover compensation for any expense that your amputation or loss of a limb required. For example, we can seek compensation for modifications to your home or vehicle.
Non-economic losses are the ways the amputation or the loss of a limb affects your life. Some of these include:

Factors that Can Affect Your Settlement
We cannot determine the value of your losses without speaking to you first. However, we can share what factors could affect your settlement’s value.
Generally, the more severe the injury and the effects on your life, the higher your settlement amount will be. For example, if a medical provider negligently caused your leg amputation and you previously worked in construction—a standing, active job—you could be entitled to more compensation than someone who worked at a desk.
More factors that can affect your case’s value include:
- The ways your condition has affected your life
- How much evidence is available
- How willing the insurance company is to negotiate

Gathering the Evidence Necessary to Prove Your Case

- Medical records

Proving the Four Elements of Negligence
We will then use the evidence we gather to establish:
- The medical provider should have treated you with a standard of care.
- The medical provider deviated from the standard of care.
- The medical provider’s breach of the standard of care caused your injuries.
- You suffered damages and adverse effects on your life.
Hiring an Expert Witness to Testify on Your Behalf
We also must hire an expert witness to testify on your behalf. As required pursuant to Ohio Revised Code (ORC) §2743.43.
