The trauma can be caused by a traffic accident, botched surgery, defective product, assault by another human, or dog bite.

When to Contact a Georgia Amputation Injury Attorney
There are several times when an amputation injury or accident can change your life and make it significantly more difficult. If someone else’s negligence has led to a dismemberment or amputation, you have rights under Georgia law. These laws are designed to compensate you for your losses, pain and suffering, lost income, loss of enjoyment, loss of consortium, and can even involve punitive damages.
The actual amount of your compensation will be based on several factors, including the investigation and preparation your amputation injury attorney invests into the case. It’s imperative to speak to an Atlanta amputation attorney any time you suffer a personal injury, especially if:
