Amputation Injury

Injuries with an Amputation Are Life-Changing

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.

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?

Traumatic 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
• “Phantom limb” pain

How do limb-loss injuries or traumatic amputation injuries happen?

Unfortunately, there are many different ways in which a traumatic amputation injury can occur, and many different scenarios in which an accident can result in the disabling loss of a limb. Negligence is often the cause. That’s why it’s important to reach out to a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

Some examples of the types of accidents in which amputation injuries occur:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Workplace accidents involving heavy machinery
  • Workplace accidents involving explosives
  • Lawnmower accidents
  • Premises liability cases

The Impact of Amputation

Amputation can range from the loss of a fingertip to the loss of an arm or a leg. Loss of a limb frequently results in significant blood loss, shock, infection, and even death.

An amputation injury often causes a reaction of grieving or depression in the victim and almost always results in some level of negative emotional impact. We always make sure our clients and their families find the support they need during the challenging period of adjustment or for as long as they need it.

If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic amputation, seek legal assistance as soon as possible.
