  • Amputations

AMPUTATIONS • Help When You Need It Most

Highly skilled attorneys able to fully prosecute amputation cases

Amputation of a limb can be one of the most traumatic, devastating events to happen to a person, resulting in depression, ongoing medical bills and perhaps ongoing surgical procedures.  Care and treatment of such injuries can carry oppressive financial obligations, and could presumably last a lifetime, especially if the person does not have the financial ability to obtain sufficient help.  

Unfortunately, in some cases, due to illness or infection, the amputation might be medically necessary in order to save the whole body while sacrificing the limb.  In other cases, however, the amputation could be the result of a tragic accident or negligent medical error.  When the latter occurs and the amputation is found to stem from medical errors, the trauma is often more difficult for a patient to process when they understand their injury could very possibly have been preventable .

Amputation causes:

Not all amputations stem from medical error.  Some amputations can be caused by an horrific physical accident, such as:

  • Truck or auto collision caused by bad driving

  • Defective products

  • Negligent use of tools and equipment

Medical errors in diagnosing and treating can lead to amputations  where the following medical diseases and conditions exist, among others:

  • Diabetes

  • Vascular disease

  • Tumors in bones

  • Cancer

  • Traumatic injuries

  • Osteomyelitis

  • Peripheral neuropathy  

  • Infections and infectious diseases

When presented with any of these conditions, most physicians will do all within their power to help a patient save their limb, whether it is via stimulating the flow of blood to the area, removal of any infectious tissue near or at the site, or administering  antibiotics.
