  • Psychologist/psychiatrist

Your amputation injury lawyer will work closely with your treating physicians and other medical experts to understand the severity of your injury and the type of ongoing medical care you will require, in addition to learning how this type of injury will affect your ability to participate in daily living activities, hobbies, and work.

What is the Value Of My Case?

It can be difficult to determine the exact value of a claim, especially considering how complex an amputation injury case can be. While an amputation injury attorney cannot guarantee how much compensation you’ll recover for your damages, they will work tirelessly to build a strong case that will hold the negligent party responsible for the harm you have suffered.  

At the Hines Law Firm, our legal team will pursue compensation for current and future economic and non-economic damages, such as:

  • Pain and suffering 
  • Past and future medical bills
  • Loss of enjoyment of life 
  • Loss of function of your limb 
  • Permanent injury 
  • Loss of earning capacity 
  • Loss of consortium 
  • Emotional distress
  • Scarring and disfigurement 
  • Property damage 
  • Lost wages

And more.

What if I Can’t Afford to Hire An Attorney?

At the Hines Law Firm, our amputation injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means you will not have to pay any upfront fees and you won’t owe your attorney anything if your case is not successful. If you do win your case, your lawyer will subtract a small percentage of your settlement or award to cover the cost of legal services. 
We also offer free legal consultations. 

At a consultation, an accident victim can meet with an attorney to discuss their case and explore their legal options. If they decide to work with us, our legal team will conduct an investigation right away and begin the process of building a strong case that will hold the negligent party responsible for all accident-related costs.
