Legal cases vary widely in Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee

The cases we handle can cover a wide range, from medical malpractice to accidents involving amputation. Don’t be so sure you don’t have grounds for taking legal action. People sustain serious or even fatal injuries every day due to someone else’s reckless behavior. And when people make careless or reckless mistakes that result in someone else being injured, those who caused the injury need to be held accountable.

Some of the other cases we handle include:

  • Airplane accidents. An airplane accident can happen for many reasons. We thoroughly investigate each incident to determine exactly who’s responsible for the crash.
  • Medical malpractice. Doctors, pharmacists and drug companies that make mistakes that put people’s lives at risk – or result in fatal injuries – need to be held accountable.
  • Product liability. When companies make products that cause people harm, injury victims have rights. We work hard to make sure those rights are fully protected.

  • Burn injury. People working with toxic chemicals and hazardous materials are vulnerable to burn injuries. Whoever caused your burn injury, contact us today.
  • Social Security disability. The U.S. Social Security Disability Insurance system protects all workers under the age of 65 against loss of earnings due to disability.

Amputation Attorney

If you were in an accident that resulted in amputation, you may be facing a lifetime of physical challenges. The loss of a limb, or even the loss of a digit such as a finger or toe, can also have a significant financial impact. And our amputation attorneys in Louisville, KY know there is an emotional toll for anyone who is dealing with a catastrophic injury.

If you or a loved one was in an accident and lost a limb or experienced an amputation, you may be entitled to compensation for losses. An insurance company may contact you and offer a quick settlement. You may be tempted to take the “money on the table” and give up your right to pursue the case any further.

Our experienced attorneys know that first offers are rarely the best offers. When we investigate cases involving catastrophic injuries such as amputation, we look at the long-term costs. We know that you may need financial compensation to cover not only your past and current medical bills, but the costs related to prosthetic limbs and replacements in the future.

The following are some of the damages we may pursue on your behalf:

  • Medical care, including surgery
  • Disfigurement
  • Expenses related to changing technology
  • Loss of social status
  • Lost wages and lost earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost opportunities (particularly for children)
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Mental health counseling
  • Emotional distress

Attorneys Mat A. Slechter and Meredith Kirklin Slechter of the Slechter Law Firm have experience representing clients who are amputees. We know that the loss of a limb such as a leg amputation or arm amputation or loss of digits is traumatic and life-changing. If someone else caused your injury, you will need a lawyer on your side who will fight to protect your rights.

The United States is home to about 3 million amputees, many of whom were injured in accidents due to the negligence of others. Such injuries may be sustained in car, truck and motorcycle accidents or while working at a construction site or some other potentially dangerous job site.
