Amputations: Common Instances

A catastrophic injury, like an amputation, can occur in a number of situations. A person may lose a limb in a:

  • Property or construction accident
  • Boating accident
  • Fire incident

The Loss Of Limbs Because Of Medical Negligence Or Neglect

The amputation of a limb can also occur in a medical situation.

If a physician provides substandard care to a patient because of a failure to treat a vascular clotting, and such clotting cuts off the circulation to a limb resulting in amputation, that is medical negligence and could give rise to a cause of action.

The Importance Of Getting The Right Lawyer To Help You Get The Right Compensation For Your Injury

In the event that you or a loved one is suffering from the sudden and unexpected loss of a limb because of an accident or another person’s negligence, it is important that you hire an experienced personal injury lawyer to handle the matter.

An amputation can be physically, emotionally and financially devastating. In many cases, a catastrophic injury caused by amputation requires extensive hospital stays, physical therapy, use of prosthetic limbs and/or wheelchairs and significant emotional stress and physical pain.

The costs associated are often thousands of dollars and more; prosthetics require continuous adjustments, alterations and replacements.

Further, loss of wages and job loss are also common for victims of amputations. Such injuries often prevent individuals from returning to their previous jobs, especially if the work required heavy lifting or extensive physical exertion.
