Amputation Accidents

Amputation can happen when an extremity is violently torn or severed from your body during an accident or as part of a medical procedure to remove a body part that has been severely damaged or infected.

Accidents that can cause or lead to amputation include:

Amputation Injuries

Amputation can mean loss of:

  • Fingers, or parts of fingers
  • Toes
  • Hands
  • Feet
  • Arms
  • Legs

Medical care after an amputation is often very extensive. Prosthetics are expensive, and therapy can be a long and grueling process. Learning to use prosthetics can be a long and difficult process. After some types of amputation, a wheelchair may be required. After amputation, you may experience neurological symptoms including phantom limb pains.

Of course, you may also have suffered other serious injuries in the accident that caused your amputation.

Other Consequences Of Amputation

Amputations can cause permanent disabilities. They can prevent you from participating in the activities you used to enjoy. They can also prevent you from working again or force you to change the type of work you do.

Amputations can lead to:

  • Altered self-identity
  • Loss of self-esteem
  • Anxiety
  • Severe depression
  • Avoiding social situations
  • PTSD

If someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing caused your amputation injury, or if you were harmed by a defective product, you may be able to recover substantial compensation.
