Loss of a limb and amputation are catastrophic injuries that permanently impact every part of your daily life. When you’ve experienced an amputation injury as a result of someone else’s negligence or recklessness, the at-fault party should be held accountable for the harm they’ve caused. Financial compensation is an important part of every accident case, but when your injuries have a lifelong impact, this compensation is vital to adjusting to your new way of life.

You should never have to navigate such a devasting loss on your own, especially when an accident claim or lawsuit is on the horizon. The attorneys at D’Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC are dedicated advocates for injured accident victims throughout Connecticut. We continually put our passion, dedication, and experience to work for our clients.


There are two classifications of amputation injuries: traumatic and surgical amputations. Traumatic amputations occur when the accident itself causes the loss of a limb. Surgical amputations happen when the limb is surgically removed because the damage is too severe for it to be saved.

Loss of limb and amputation injuries can occur in a variety of accidents, including:

  • Car accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Premises liability accidents
  • Boating accidents

However they occur, amputation injuries have a devastating impact on the accident victim and their family.


You may be able to recover financial compensation for your injuries, including the costs and damage associated with medical treatment, adaptive equipment, therapy, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.
