Pursue Justice with Our Los Angeles Amputation Attorneys
Our Experienced Team Will Fight to Help You Receive the Amputation Settlement You Deserve
Our attorneys at Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation are skilled in handling cases involving traumatic orthopedic injuries and amputations.
Our trial lawyers have won numerous multi-million-dollar verdicts and settlements. We focus on catastrophic injury cases and have 35+ years of collective experience fighting for people like you. At Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation, we provide small-firm attention but have the resources of a big firm. We’ll do everything we can to help you win the maximum settlement or verdict so you can move forward in your life.
When it comes to receiving a favorable outcome, how you present your case matters. Insurers will bring all their resources to bear to save themselves a seven-figure payout. They will ask to interview you and see your medical records, and then use this information against you.
Our team can take over these insurer discussions and negotiations for you, and give you access to knowledgeable consultants who can help you prove the settlement you’re asking for is fair. We aren’t afraid to take on big companies with corporate lawyers on your behalf.
Our Experience, Your Cause
The loss of a limb due to traumatic or surgical amputation is a life-altering event. We often hear our clients say they feel left behind after their worksite injury or accident. Insurers are more concerned about their own bottom line than the health of accident victims. We help level the playing field by giving you access to an experienced team who can answer your legal questions and handle the procedural steps for you.
What Should My Settlement Cover?
The price of prosthetic devices can well exceed $100,000. This might be the amount an insurer offers you, and it seems fair at first glance. But even the most expensive prosthetic limbs are built only to withstand about three years of active wear, meaning that they will need to be replaced many times over the course of a lifetime. Each prosthetic must be custom fit to you, and after a successful surgery, you will need physical therapy and other support while you recover.
Aside from these costs, the victims of catastrophic accidents typically lose income in the time they are out for recovery. After an amputation, many also see their future earning potential reduced. This does not even cover the pain and suffering someone in this situation faces. We hire medical professionals and forensic economists to testify about these losses at trial. The needs arising from the loss of a limb go far beyond the cost of a prosthetic. Our team can help you understand the worth of your claim, which will likely be much more than the insurance company is offering.

Causes of Severed Limbs
Injuries that result in or require amputations can happen in many ways:
- Car accidents may result in severe damage that cannot be repaired even by the best specialists in the medical field.
- In crane accidents, the crane may topple over causing the operator to lose a limb. The manufacturer may be liable for selling defective machinery or for failure to warn about the risks of handling the machine.
- In drill press or lathe accidents, fingers may get caught due to missing safety guards. This may be a design flaw or a choice made by the equipment owner/maintainers for which the client may seek full damages.
- Conveyer belt accidents, where a finger or arm gets severed, may be caused by an inaccessible or faulty shut off switch. This could be the fault of the manufacturer or the employer.
- Bad burns and explosions can result in injuries that require amputation. Furnaces, boilers, and other such appliances may cause these accidents due to faulty installation or poor maintenance.
Whether your accident matches one of the scenarios above or has another cause, our attorneys may be able to help. You deserve the best care possible after surviving such a traumatic event, and the party who caused it must be held accountable.
