PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY IN SACRAMENTO CA

personal injury attorney in Sacramento CA

A lost limb affects your life in so many different ways.

If you or a loved one was involved in a catastrophic accident that resulted in a limb amputation, you need to contact a personal injury lawyer who can represent you. According to the National Limb Loss Information Center, there are approximately 1.8 million people living with limb loss in the United States.

A lost limb affects your life in so many different ways. From finance to social to psychological to physical, and everything in between. If loss of a limb was caused by negligence of others, you need a lawyer to hold those parties responsible. The most common types of amputation injuries occur due to:

  • Workplace accident
  • Medical malpractice
  • Construction site accident
  • Vehicle accident
  • Private or public property negligence

The statistics of limb amputation is devastating. One out of every 200 people in the US has had an amputation and almost 70% of accident-related amputations involve the upper-limbs. Males and elderly are at a higher risk for traumatic amputations. If you have suffered from a limb amputation, don’t wait to contact an accident lawyer.

Types of Amputations

Amputations may be complete or partial. In a complete loss, the body part is totally severed from the body and in a partial loss, some bone, tissue or muscle keeps the amputated part attached to the victim’s body. The names for amputations are:

  • Guillotine – localized damage to the surrounding tissue, nerves and blood vessels
  • Crush- more tissue damage which may extend some distance from the wound edge
  • Avulsion – caused by the stretching or tearing away of the tissue.

Any type of amputation can cause life-altering implications. If you’ve been injured and lost a limb as a result, contact a skilled personal injury attorney in Sacramento CA.

Damages You Are Entitled For

Losing a limb due to someone else’s negligence can affect your life in many ways and demands for compensation for such effects. Depending on the case, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Loss of income
  • Loss of future income
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Medical bills
  • Vocational rehabilitation
  • Psychological counseling
  • Lost enjoyment of life

A victim and the family will endure many expenses and endure many challenges in recovering from the accident. The medical costs associated with amputations are very substantial. Often victims require many days of hospitalization and many amputees require expensive prosthetics or artificial limbs. These prosthetics may costs tens of thousands of dollars and require replacement every 2-5 years. Worse, amputees can also face significant future medical costs. A personal injury attorney in Sacramento CA can help you get the maximum compensation you and your loved ones deserve for your pain and suffering.

      This is my second time hiring Mr. Choyce for my son, who was charged with a criminal act. Both times that I hired Mr. Choyce, I was very impressed with his knowledge of the law, his professionalism, and the fact that he was relatable. He is trustworthy, tells you the truth about what you are facing. He is organized, he is a very good listener, came up with strategies that were appealing.I can’t say enough good about Mr. Choyce! I knew that he was going to give my son’s case everything he had, and he did!

      Hiring the Choyce Law Firm was the best decision I made while trying to decide what to do after getting charged with a 3rd DUI. I tried to use a lawyer that I had previously used when in trouble with the law, he was near retirement and wasn’t able to give my case the attention I was looking for understanding that I was facing jail time. When contacting Mr Choyce we discussed my case and he told me he could help, he even knew my previous attorney. Mr Choyce was aggressive in fighting my case with filing motions on my behalf an trying to get my case dismissed, I was very pleased that he was not just looking to get the first deal the D.A. offered but was aggressively trying to win my case. Although we were not able to get the dismissal we were looking for he was able to keep me out of jail an I was able to serve my sentence on the EHD Program, which allowed me to keep my job an that was very important to me. Mr Choyce also handled a second case for me, I was charged with driving on a suspended license and no registration. Once again Mr Choyce was aggressive with this case and took it to trail an was able to get a not guilty verdict, which saved me a great deal of money in fines that would be pending with a guilty verdict. Overall hiring Mr Choyce and his team was the best decision I made, he provided great service at a respectable rate, an explained things as they were happening and with the charges I was facing I was very happy with the outcome of my cases that he handled. I would strongly recommend Mr Choyce and his team to anyone I know that needs legal representation he knows the law and will provide you with the best service you could hope for form a lawyer that wants to win.

      FIRE & BURN INJURY ACCIDENTS

      SACRAMENTO PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY

      Sacramento Personal Injury Attorney

      A fire or burn injury can be devastating both physically and emotionally.

      But many people do not believe that fires or burns are something that can happen to them. Numerous fires and resulting burn injuries, including death, occur each year across the United States. In fact, statistics reveal that every 19 seconds a fire department responds to a fire somewhere in the United States. Those most vulnerable to suffer injury or death in a fire are children younger than 5 and adults over 65.

      Fires have many causes including defective products and improperly maintained property. In addition to causing irreplaceable property loss, fires can also cause burn injuries that are disfiguring, painful, and even deadly. The United States has the highest rate of fire-related deaths in the developed world. If a manufacturer creates a defective product or if a property owner is negligent in the maintenance of the premises and that negligence results in a fire, those parties can be held responsible for burn injuries sustained.

      If you have been burned or injured in a fire contact Sacramento personal injury attorney at The Choyce Law Firm to protect your legal rights. Consultation is free and there is never a fee until we win.

      Fire kills more Americans each year than all other forms of natural disaster combined. More than 80% of all fire deaths occur in the home. In 2004, the National Fire Protection Association reported there was a home fire every 79 seconds in the United States, and in 2003, a home fire death occurred every 170 minutes. Over $12.3 billion in property damage occurred last year as a result of fires.

      The consumer products most commonly associated with fires include:

      • Wood and coal burning stoves and fireplaces
      • Kerosene heaters
      • Gas-fired space heaters
      • Portable electric heaters
      • Cooking equipment
      • Cigarette lighters and matches
      • Upholstered furniture
      • Mattresses and bedding
      • Clothing
      • Flammable liquids

      Common causes of California fire injuries and deaths include careless smoking, disrepair and misuse of heating equipment, and accidents while cooking. Use of alternate heat sources such as space heaters or electric blankets increases the chances of starting a fire, especially if these items are not maintained or operated properly.

      If you have been burned or injured in a fire contact Sacramento personal injury attorney at The Choyce Law Firm to protect your legal rights. Consultation is free and there is never a fee until we win.

      A burn is a devastating and extremely painful injury. A burn injury can be caused by a variety of agents, such as heat, chemicals, electricity, or sunlight. Scalds, building fires, flammable liquids, and gases cause the most common serious burns.

      Burns are classified based upon severity of damage to the skin and are divided into three categories:

      • First-degree burns affect only the outer layer (called the epidermis) of the skin.
      • Second-degree burns damage the epidermis and the layer beneath it (called the dermis).
      • Third-degree burns involve damage or destruction of all layers of the skin and damage to underlying tissues. People who experience such burns often require skin grafting.
      • The swelling and blistering associated with burns is caused by the loss of fluid from damaged blood vessels. In severe cases this fluid loss can cause shock, requiring the burn victim to need an immediate blood or salt solution transfusion to restore adequate fluid levels in order to maintain blood pressure.

      If you have been burned or injured in a fire contact Sacramento personal injury attorney at The Choyce Law Firm to protect your legal rights. Consultation is free and there is never a fee until we win.

      According to the American Burn Association (www.ameriburn.org), each year in the United States, 1.1 million burn injuries require medical attention, and that’s just the beginning. Approximately 50,000 of those with burn injuries require hospitalization, and roughly half of those burn patients are admitted to a specialized burn unit. Each year, approximately 4,500 burn-injury victims die. Up to 10,000 people in the United States die every year of burn-related infections; pneumonia is the most common infectious complication among hospitalized burn patients.

      The most common complications suffered by a burn injury victim include:

      • Scarring
      • Cosmetic deformity
      • Sepsis (the presence of bacteria or their toxins in the blood or tissues)
      • Adult respiratory distress syndrome
      • Death

      Twenty years ago, burns covering half the body were routinely fatal. Today, patients with burns covering 90% of the body can survive, but they often suffer permanent injury. Contributing to the improved survival rate are advances in resuscitation, wound cleaning and follow-up care, nutritional support, and infection control. Grafting with natural or artificial materials can also aid the healing process. Victims who have suffered a burn injury often need to recover from not just the devastating physical affects but the emotional trauma as well.

          SERIOUS BONE INJURIES

          INJURY LAWYER IN SACRAMENTO CA

          injury lawyer in Sacramento, CA

          INJURY LAWYER HELPS VICTIMS OF ACCIDENTS THAT CAUSED BADLY BROKEN BONES OR CRUSHED JOINTS

          There are many different types of accidents that could cause broken bones or crushed joints. Each case is different and the factors that will determine the settlement will vary. It’s always best to talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer who can evaluate your case and guide you through the process.

          Fortunately, for the most part, broken bones are not life-threatening and usually heal with time. However, broken bones can affect the victim and the victim’s family in many other ways such as:

          • High medical bills associated with treatment
          • Temporary disablement or immobilization
          • Lost wages for having to be out of work during the healing process
          • Complications leading to ongoing chronic pain
          • In addition, insurance companies and medical providers often overwhelm the victims with complicated paperwork and obstacles. Having an experienced injury lawyer can relieve you of the complications and enable you to direct your attention to healing.

          Types of Broken Bones

          One of the most important factors in any personal injury case is evidence. When it comes to a broken bone or fracture, there is no question that the injury took place. Having an x-ray will make your settlement a lot easier but there are still other factors that are involved. Valuing the case involves examining how bad the injury is.

          There are a few different categories your injury can fall into:

          • Open Broken Bone Injuries: This is when a bone breaks the skin’s surface. It has the additional risk of a deep bone infection called osteomyelitis which could be acute or chronic and is caused by infectious germs.
          • Closed Broken Bone Injuries: This is when the bones break but do not cause a hole in the outer skin. They are also referred to as simple fractures.
          • Displaced Broken Bone Injuries: This is when the bone snaps into one or more pieces and moves out of its normal positioning.
          • Non-displaced Broken Bone Injuries: This is where the bone cracks but does not move or break.
          • Greenstick Broken Bone Injuries: This is when the bone has been bent because of trauma but has not broken. It is more common in children.
          • Transverse Broken Bone Injuries: This is when the break is at a right angle to the bone.
          • Linear Broken Bone Injuries: This is the opposite of a transverse injury.

          There are many different types of bone injuries and only a medical examiner can properly identify which category your injury falls into. Severe bone injuries could be caused by a car, bus, motorcycle, truck, defective products, medical malpractice and many other accidents that involve a negligent party acting irresponsibly. If someone was acting negligent and caused you to suffer a severe bone injury, you could be entitled to compensation. Contact a personal injury lawyer for help.
