Important Things to Know About Amputation Injuries
An amputation injury, also known as a loss of limb injury, is classified as a catastrophic injury due to its severity and permanence. Amputation injuries often involve intense pain, along with extreme emotional distress, and permanent limitation on function or mobility. Amputations can be accidental, meaning they occur in a serious accident, such as a car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle or pedestrian accident, in a severe workplace accident, due to a defective product or piece of machinery, a malfunctioning elevator or escalator, or a fall from a great height. Amputations can also be surgical; although the limb was not severed in the accident itself, it was injured so severely that it must be surgically removed as a life-saving measure. In either case, the party responsible for the accident is liable for the damage caused.
It’s critical after an amputation injury to seek help from a qualified attorney who understands the full extent of the injury and the lifetime of challenges and costs it presents. Putting together a compelling package for compensation and knowing how to present it to the insurance company or a jury requires knowledge and skill built on experience handling catastrophic injury cases.
