How Did Your Amputation Injury Happen?
To make the most of your amputation injury claim, we first need to understand more about how your amputation injury happened. By investigating your case and looking for new evidence of negligence, we can pinpoint liability and know that we are holding the correct party or parties accountable for your life-changing injury.
Some of the most common causes of amputations include:
- Motor vehicle accidents: Car accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents are some of the most common causes of severe yet preventable injuries in the country. A particularly violent crash or one that ejects a motorist from their vehicle and onto the road can cause an amputation among other catastrophic injuries.
- Medical malpractice: As shocking as it might seem, medical malpractice is a common cause of amputation. Specifically, negligent surgeons have been known to mark the wrong limb or digit for amputation due to miscommunications in the surgery room or a failure to check the patient’s medical records.
- Construction accidents: Severe workplace accidents can cause amputations, especially in workplaces that involve heavy machinery, industrial equipment, and moving vehicles. Construction sites have a higher-than-normal risk of accidents that could potentially cause an amputation.
- Severe burns: Some amputations happen intentionally and for medical reasons. If a limb is severely damaged, surgeons might need to amputate it to prevent further blood or tissue loss. For example, arms, hands, feet, and legs that have suffered a third-degree burn might require medical amputation.
How Can Amputations Be Treated?
All amputation injuries are catastrophic because they are all permanent and life-threatening if no medical attention is provided soon. However, the permanency of an amputation does not mean that there is no way for your doctor to approach the situation and look for potential alleviations. For example, you might be able to use a prosthetic to replace your lost body part. Advanced prosthetics can even complete dexterous motions, such as artificial hands that can be manipulated intricately after some practice.
For many amputees, the problem with medical equipment is not that it will not help them restore some independence and mobility. Instead, they find that they cannot afford to get the prosthetics that they need to feel closer to how they were pre-injury. With a successful amputation injury claim handled by our team, though, you could get the prosthetics you require without paying anything out of your own finances. We are adamant about getting 100% of the compensation owed to you, which should cover prosthetic costs, other medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering, hardships, and more.
