What Are the Common Causes of Amputations?
When limbs or other body parts are amputated during an accident instead of a medical procedure, it is called a traumatic amputation. When the body sustains sharp cuts or severe tears outside of a sterile and controlled hospital setting, it can result in life-threatening complications like severe bleeding and infections.
Common accidents that can result in traumatic amputations include:
- Motorcycle accidents
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Industrial machinery and equipment accidents
- HAZMAT accidents
- Electrocution accidents
- Fires and explosions
- Defective products
- Construction accidents
- Factory accidents
What Types of Damages Can Ce Recovered for an Amputation Injury?
After a traumatic amputation, individuals must relearn how to perform basic everyday skills and must alter their lifestyle to accommodate post-amputation care and management. The costs of a prosthetic limb can be also overwhelming, averaging between $5,000 and $50,000. Prosthetic limbs also need to be replaced every three to five years. Add in the cost of doctors, physical therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, and other medical professionals that are necessary to help with pain and suffering, you can see why recovering fair compensation for your damages is vital.
If you suffered a traumatic amputation, then you might be able to recover compensation for the following damages:
- Surgical procedures
- Emergency trauma care
- Ongoing medical treatments
- Home health assistance
- Lost future earning capacity
- Lost income
- Early and ongoing rehabilitation
- Therapy for emotional trauma
- Permanent disfigurement
- Physical pain and suffering
- Wheelchairs or other mobility devices
- Initial and replacement prosthetics
