Injuries with an Amputation Are Life-Changing

Traumatic Amputation Injury

An amputation injury can be truly devastating. One minute you are walking or using both arms, and the next minute—after an unexpected and often preventable accident—you have suffered a traumatic limb-loss injury that requires being rushed to the hospital and undergoing emergency surgery. Many injury victims who suffer a traumatic amputation are never able to work again, and many who are eventually capable of going back to work are only able to do so in a limited capacity for the rest of their lives. Many different types of accidents can result in a traumatic amputation injury, from a motor vehicle collision or motorcycle crash to a workplace accident involving the use of heavy machinery. No matter how you sustained your injury, you may be eligible to file a claim for financial compensation. An experienced Georgia amputation injury lawyer can speak with you today about your options.

What is an Amputation Injury?

When you are accidentally injured such that you suffer the loss of a limb, this is known as a traumatic amputation injury. More specifically, MedlinePlus defines a traumatic amputation as “the loss of a body part, usually a finger, toe, arm, or leg, that occurs as the result of an accident or injury.” The severity of and recovery from traumatic amputation injuries varies greatly depending upon the site of the injury. In some circumstances, even when there is a complete amputation (a limb or body part has been completely severed from the body), a surgeon may be able to reattach the limb. In other cases, an injury victim might suffer what is known as a partial amputation, which is a situation in which “some soft-tissue connection remains.” Depending upon the specific nature of the injury, a surgeon may be able to reattach the limb. For many injury victims suffering a traumatic amputation; however, the limb cannot be reattached.

There are also serious complications that can result from a traumatic amputation injury. Most often, injury victims may experience:

  • Bleeding;
  • Shock;
  • Infection;
  • Slow wound healing; and
  • “phantom limb” pain.
