We Know What It Takes to Win®  

Every year in the United States, an average of 30,000 people suffer from traumatic amputation injuries. Many are caused because of others’ negligence, and others occur in the workplace.

In addition to the overwhelming frustration, fear and emotional hardship associated with such catastrophic injuries, our lawyers understand that any traumatic loss of a limb irrevocably alters accident victims’ lives, resulting in costly medical care, lost income, pain and suffering, and permanent disability.

Accident victims who endure traumatic amputation often require additional surgery, and extensive physical and occupational rehabilitation in order to learn to live with their substantial limitations. No amount of money can replace a lost arm or leg, but hiring a personal injury attorney can be a critical step for an injury victim to obtaining compensation from those responsible.

Traumatic Amputation Causes

According to John Hopkins Medicine, traumatic amputations account for 45% of all amputations. A variety of incidents have the potential to cause spinal cord injuries including:

  • High-speed or roll-over car crashes
  • Trucking and commercial vehicle accidents
  • Motorcycle wrecks
  • Pedestrian collisions
  • Bicycle crashes
  • Construction and other workplace accidents
  • Defective equipment or machinery
  • Medical malpractice

Complications After Amputation

Montlick is the Right Call

Get Started

Traumatic amputation victims endure profound consequences. In many cases, such injuries result in permanent disability, ending careers. In addition to the immense financial hardship associated with such injuries, victims can no longer perform tasks that many of us take for granted, such as putting their clothing on, writing, bathing, walking, holding and playing with their children, and others.

Advances in medicine may allow physicians and surgeons to reattach an amputated limb depending on the nature of the injury. Guillotine amputations, such as when a limb is “chopped off,” have a greater chance of successful reattachment than a crushed limb, or an avulsion amputation (where the limb is sheared off). In addition to saving a traumatic amputee’s life, surgical reattachment of a severed limb is of high importance immediately after an accident.

However, even when limbs are fortunately reattached following amputation, victims have a long road to recovery. Initially, there is often a high risk of infection, and in dire circumstances, sepsis. Victims often also have to endure physical therapy to re-learn how to use their reattached limbs as well, and often do not regain full functioning of the appendage.
