Compassionate Attorneys Assisting Accident Victims on Cape Cod

The injury lawyers at the Law Offices of John C. Manoog III have been serving people across Cape Cod and elsewhere in Massachusetts since 1994. We approach our cases with compassion, experience, and dedication, fighting aggressively to help clients hold accountable those who have harmed them. We understand the pain and stress that serious accidents cause both a victim and his or her family, and we are committed to assisting our neighbors in these difficult situations. We can give clients the peace of mind that comes with knowing that have an accomplished legal team in their corner.

Amputation – the removal of a limb, either by trauma or during surgery – is a severe injury that is likely to alter a victim’s life forever. An amputation can limit a person’s ability to get around day to day and perform regular activities, as well as to do certain types of work. The lasting impact of these injuries can also include mental and emotional issues, and it often extends to family members who rely on the victim for support.

Seeking Compensation after an Amputation

Amputations can result from a wide variety of accidents, from a car or motorcycle crash to a mishap on the job or an instance of medical malpractice. When these accidents happen, the injured person may have the right to seek legal remedies from those responsible. That often includes money damages for past, present, and future medical expenses, missed wages due to time away from work, and any impact on the person’s future earning capacity. In many cases, it also entails damages for pain and suffering as well as emotional distress. The family of an injured person in some cases can additionally seek “loss of consortium” damages to compensate for the loss of the victim’s companionship, support, love, and guidance.

In order to recover these damages, the injured person typically has to sue those responsible for negligence. This legal theory requires the injured person (plaintiff) to show that the person or entity being sued (defendant) breached a “duty of care” owed to the plaintiff and that this breach caused the accident, which caused the plaintiff to be harmed and suffer damages. Drivers owe others on the road a duty to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner, for example. Doctors and other medical professionals similarly owe patients a duty to treat them with the care and expertise appropriate for a professional with similar training in the same geographic area.

In job-related accident cases, the injured person may instead have a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. Most employers in Massachusetts pay into this no-fault insurance system, which makes benefits available for employees injured in accidents covered by the plan. Those benefits tend to include money for medical costs and missed wages, depending on the nature and severity of the worker’s injuries.
