Car Accident Amputation Injury Claims Lawyers in Georgia
Amputations are some of the more tragic injuries that can occur in a car, truck or pedestrian accident. A loss of a limb can cause not only physical limitations for a victim but also emotional turmoil.
Types of Amputations from Car Accidents
Several kinds of amputation injuries can occur from a car accident in Florida. Some of the types of amputations victims might suffer include:
- Partial amputation of the foot
- Partial amputation of the hand
- Foot amputations (ankle disarticulation)
- Arm amputations (shoulder disarticulation)
- Below-the-knee amputations
- Above-the-knee amputations
Each of these amputations affects victims differently and places different degrees of limitation on victims’ abilities to perform daily functions. Victims also commonly have mental and emotional distress due to amputations, stemming from their new physical disabilities..
Causes and Treatment of Amputation Injuries
Often, amputations due to car accidents occur because of crushing injuries or severe blood loss (ischemia) to the limbs. The types of accidents that most frequently lead to amputations are:
- Overturning collisions
- Rollover collisions
- T-bone collisions
- Head-on collisions
While any car accident has the potential to lead to amputation injuries, the force and nature of these accidents tend to increase the risk of crushing injuries and serious injuries leading to blood loss. In these cases, the limb amputation is usually the treatment for the underlying injury and the results of that injury. Amputation victims may also require additional surgeries, rehabilitation, pain relievers, and prosthetics.
Compensation for Amputation Injuries
These types of injuries are considered catastrophic, and have high value depending on the amount of insurance coverage available, the strength of liability, and other factors. As such, it is important in such cases to immediately take action to preserve important evidence, and locate all relevant insurance policies, including those that may provide Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage to the victim.
If you underwent an amputation procedure due to a Georgia auto accident caused by someone else, you could have a valuable claim, which would make you eligible to recover compensation for your past, present and future medical bills, lost income, your future prostheses, pain and suffering, and more.
