Amputations


Losing a limb is a devastating experience in any circumstance. However, the overwhelming emotional impact can be even greater for people who lose a limb as the result of a shocking, violent, and preventable accident caused by someone else’s negligence.

Life will never be the same for accident victims who have sustained traumatic amputations. Because of the negligence of another party and/or entity, an injured accident victim could be forced to grapple with the distressing physical, psychological, and financial consequences. Many accident survivors who have lost limbs struggle to continue working in their current field of employment, which could have substantial effects on their abilities to continue supporting themselves and their families. 

By working with our Ontario personal injury lawyers, accident victims who have sustained permanent, catastrophic injuries such as traumatically amputated limbs may be able to recover the maximum amount of compensation to which they are entitled. To learn more, book a free initial consultation with Preszler Injury Lawyers by calling 1-800-JUSTICE today. 

Accident Benefits for Injured Survivors of Motor Vehicle Collisions

If you were injured as the result of an automobile collision, you may be entitled to collect compensation through your insurance provider through your policy’s accident benefits. All automobile insurance policies in the province are required to provide coverage legislated within the Ontario Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS). In accordance with the SABS, catastrophically injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions may be entitled to:

  • Up to $1 million for medical expenses and attendant care
  • Up to $100 per week for housekeeping services and home maintenance 
  • Income replacement payments of 70% of a policyholder’s regular earnings (up to a maximum of $400 per week)
  • And possibly more

Unfortunately, the accident benefits to which catastrophically injured car crash survivors might be entitled rarely meet the true financial needs of someone who has lost a limb in a harrowing accident. People with an amputation often require ongoing costs throughout their lifetimes. And, if their physical injuries or resulting mental health concerns make it impossible for them to continue working in their chosen occupational field, affording the necessary costs of care can feel like an impossibility.

Even affording the cost of a prosthetic can be an overwhelming challenge. Although the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s Assistive Devices Program (ADP) claims to subsidize 75% of the cost of an amputee’s artificial limbs and other required assistive equipment, since the program imposes limits on the value of the devices it covers, in many circumstances, people relying on this crucial support are only awarded a fraction of their prosthetics’ actual cost.

Furthermore, amputees often require multiple prosthetic limbs or other assistive devices over the course of their lives. With limited support available to them through the provincial government’s ADP, many accident survivors simply cannot afford to replace their artificial limbs when necessary.
