Pittsburgh Amputation Lawyer
Any serious personal injury that results in permanent disability can be devastating to the victim. An amputation injury that results in a lost hand, foot, arm or leg can never be replaced, no matter how sophisticated a prosthesis is. A victim must live forever after with both the visible reminder of the injury as well as the physical consequences, including phantom pains and loss of normal bodily functions. If you or a loved one has lost a limb due to someone else’s negligence, contact a Pittsburgh amputation lawyer at Hal Waldman & Associates today.

Don’t Be Fooled: the Insurance Company Is Not on Your Side
No doubt, employers and insurance representatives will express genuine human concern for you upon learning of your amputation accident. However sympathetic they may seem, remember that their objective is to limit liability for themselves, not to watch out for your well-being.
If we represent you after an amputation resulting from a car accident, motorcycle accident, construction accident or industrial accident, you can count on us to stand up for your right to adequate compensation. After an amputation accident, there may be expenses beyond treatment for the initial injury such as the following:
- Psychological counseling
- Physical therapy
- Projected necessary prosthesis replacements over a lifetime
- Other medical and rehabilitative needs, including pain management and vocational rehabilitation
Our advocacy work for amputation victims and other accident victims with serious injuries will include the following:
- Work with life care planners who will prepare documentation of expected needs over a lifetime to compensate for the disability and loss
- Work with videographers who will prepare vivid presentations depicting the impact of an amputation on a victim’s daily life and livelihood
Beware of “selling yourself short” after an amputation injury resulting from a motor vehicle accident or a workplace accident, before you understand the full scope of your projected expenses and losses. Consult with a knowledgeable lawyer before accepting any settlement agreement. Contact the law offices of Hal Waldman & Associates in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to schedule your free consultation.
