Amputation Injuries

Traumatic amputation is when a body part is either wholly or partially severed as the result of an accident. Amputation may be a medical necessity if a traumatic injury destroys the blood vessels that feed the tissue surrounding the wound, or in the case of severe infection or life-threatening loss of blood. Nearly 30,000 trauma related amputations occur annually in this country. People who suffer from such a devastating injury may have grounds for a personal injury claim.

Amputation Injury Claims

A personal injury claim occurs when a person suffers a loss or injury as the direct result of the negligence of another party. If that negligence can be proved, then the injured party may be entitled to compensation.

Amputation injuries involving such negligence may result from:

  • Dangerous property conditions
  • Automobile accidents
  • Defective products
  • Animal attacks
  • Construction sites
  • Workplace injuries
  • Failure to recognize or timely treat an infection
