How Severed or Heavily Damaged Limbs Can Impact Your Life

The way you lived your life before the rollover car accident that caused your devastating injuries probably feels like a distant memory.

When you have severed or heavily damaged limbs, you’ll require extensive medical treatment, and you may need life-long care, rehabilitation, home and vehicle modifications, medical assistance, and physical therapy. You may very likely be disabled as a result of your severe injuries. This is particularly true if the limited use of your limbs affects your ability to work or to be employed in your previous line of work. Even if your injuries don’t result in disability, you may spend time away from work, which can reduce your income.

All of the medical treatment and continued care that you need will be expensive. These substantial financial costs may be compounded by your inability to work or to earn the income you need to cover your regular expenses and the medical bills that result from the treatment of your injuries.

The emotional trauma following a rollover accident can be so significant that it can affect all areas of your life. The physical pain of your injuries can wear on your spirit and affect your emotional well-being. You may be fearful of getting into a vehicle again. Certain sounds can trigger flashbacks of the devastating crash that caused you to experience the daily pain, discomfort, and struggles you’ve been fighting due to your severed or damaged limbs. You may be unable to enjoy or indulge in your passions if they require you to be fully mobile.

What Can Cause Rollover Accidents?

Several factors can lead to a rollover accident.

  • A reckless driver can cause a rollover accident when speeding because when they take a curve too fast, their vehicle can tip and roll over.
  • A distracted driver can crash into an object or another vehicle, and their car can be sent rolling due to the force of the initial impact.
  • Dangerous road conditions, such as roads that contain significant potholes, faulty medians and barriers, or even slippery roads caused by inclement weather can cause a driver to lose control of their vehicle and crash into another driver or large object. As a result of the crash, the driver’s vehicle could roll over.
  • Finally, if a driver’s vehicle suffers a mechanical malfunction due to a manufacturing defect, it can cause a collision where an unfortunate combination of elements leads to the vehicle rolling over.

How Do I Prove My Injuries Are Related to My Rollover Accident?

When you pursue compensation for your severed or heavily damaged limbs, you have to show proof that someone else’s negligence caused the accident. To prove negligence, you’ll need to show evidence that the person who was responsible for your injuries should have been careful to avoid injuring you, but they weren’t. And as a result of their actions, you sustained serious injuries for which you can be compensated.

Additionally, one of the best ways to prove the severity of your injuries is by providing your medical records. Your medical records should contain details about your injury and the treatment that you received from medical professionals, including any surgeries. Your medical bills can also show evidence of the amount of compensation you deserve.

How Much Compensation Can I Get for My Severed or Damaged Limbs?

Whether you file a personal injury claim with the negligent driver’s insurance company or a personal injury lawsuit, you can pursue compensation to cover your losses. Without a detailed review of the specific circumstances of your case, no one can guess the value of your claim. However, you have accident-related financial and psychological losses that you can be compensated for. This compensation is also known as economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages cover:

  • Medical expenses
  • Future medical treatment expenses
  • Lost income or wages and benefits
  • Loss of ability to earn income or wages in the future
  • Property damage

Non-economic damages cover:

  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment and quality of life
  • Emotional trauma from scarring, disfigurement, or disability

Another type of compensation, punitive damages, is awarded by a judge or jury if your case is litigated in court. Punitive damages are rare, however. A judge or jury may award the injured party punitive damages to punish the negligent party, but only if the injured party proves with clear and convincing evidence that the former’s actions were willful, reckless, or wanton.
