If you are in a traumatic accident or develop a condition that requires you to have an amputation because of the wrongful conduct of another, then you might be able to sue that person or entity for the significant consequences that you will face in the future. What consequences? You will definitely encounter extraordinary medical bills for the procedure itself, medication to manage the pain, and long-term medical care to treat the condition. You might also find that you cannot work as you used to and, therefore, your income could drop severely over the rest of your life. Finally, your quality of life might be drastically reduced as you find you have increased pain and suffering, discomfort, disability, and even disfigurement. These are just some of the ways that an amputation can affect your life and goad you to start a lawsuit. However, deciding if you should sue and how you should sue begins with a careful review of Illinois laws and we do that in the following section.
