I lost a limb due to the flu. Do I have rights to compensation?

14 Feb 2018

The flu epidemic has been hitting the U.S. extremely hard this year. This year’s strains are serious, and the flu shot has proven to be mostly ineffective. There have been reports across the country of large numbers of deaths, even among some young, healthy individuals.

In addition to the deaths, there have been some reports of amputations among victims of the flu. In serious cases, flu can lead to sepsis and then a loss of a limb, or even death. Although the elderly and the very young are most at risk of serious or deadly consequences from the flu, everyone is at risk.

If you have lost a limb because of the flu, you may have some legal options to pursue to obtain compensation for your damages. If you went to visit a doctor because of the flu, and you were misdiagnosed or did not obtain the correct treatment, you may have a right to compensation for your expenses and pain and suffering from the doctor.

I am not only a personal injury attorney, I am also an amputee. I understand how an amputation can seriously impact the rest of your life. In addition, an amputation can result in massive expenses over the amputee’s lifetime.
