What Am I Entitled To Receive If I Suffer From An Amputation Injury?
For amputees, there is typically a statutory award that must be paid out immediately. Unfortunately, many insurance companies will not do that. For this reason, it is all the more important to seek legal advice from an amputation injury lawyer immediately.
