Causes of Accidental Amputations

An amputation occurs when a limb is cut off from the body. It is an extremely severe injury, and in most cases, the patient will have to live without an arm or a leg perpetually. While prosthetic limbs are available for many victims, they are often very expensive. Our firm believes in holding negligent or reckless individuals accountable for causing a catastrophic injury. We will help you pursue justice for from those responsible.

Accidental amputations may be caused by:

An amputation can be either partial or total. Victims may suffer extreme phantom limb pain, and have to undergo extensive therapy to adjust to a new way of life. Everyday tasks, such as eating, getting dressed, and going to the bathroom, may become incredibly difficult. Victims may also be unable to drive or walk without assistance.

Pursuing Justice for Amputation Injuries

If your amputation was caused by the negligence or recklessness of someone else, you have the right to seek compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. Drivers, doctors, and product manufacturers must be held responsible in court for causing your loss of limb. Depending on the situation, you may be able to receive a settlement for various expenses.

These include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Disability
  • Physical therapy
  • Prosthetic limbs
  • Rehabilitation
  • Emotional distress

Medical malpractice claims may result if a doctor fails to identify and treat gangrene or other conditions that could lead to the loss of a limb. Doctors owe a duty of care to patients. This involves providing safe and effective treatment to protect your health and well-being. If your physician operated on the wrong limb, performed an amputation that was unnecessary, or failed to prevent the loss of a limb, you can file a claim to hold him or her responsible.

Furthermore, product manufacturers may be held liable for amputation injuries resulting from dangerously designed or defective products. Machinery and certain tools must have proper safety warnings and features to prevent an injury. If a manufacturer fails to add safety devices to a dangerous product, and you suffer the loss of a digit or limb as a result, you may be able to pursue compensation in a defective product claim.
