What Is Amputation?

Amputation is the removal of a body part, such as an arm, leg, hand, or foot. In some cases, only the body part’s function is removed, while in other cases the body part is completely severed and removed. Amputations can be “traumatic,” meaning they occur as the result of an accident, or “surgical,” meaning they are performed by a surgeon.

Some examples of traumatic amputation include:

  • A finger being severed in a machinery accident
  • A limb being crushed and severed in a car accident
  • A foot being severed in a motorcycle accident

Some examples of surgical amputation include:

  • A hand being amputated due to the spread of cancer
  • A foot being amputated due to a severe infection
  • A leg being amputated to prevent the spread of gangrene

Regardless of how an amputation occurs, it is always a catastrophic injury that will affect the victim for the rest of their life.

Life After Amputation

Amputations are life-changing injuries that will permanently affect the victim’s life. In addition to the physical challenges of life after amputation, victims also face significant emotional and financial challenges.

Some common issues amputees face include:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues
  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Problems with mobility and balance
  • Problems with fine motor skills
  • Chronic infections and other health issues
  • Problems with prosthetics and other assistive devices
  • Increased risk of future injuries
  • Death, in the most severe cases

Amputees often require surgeries, hospital stays, rehabilitation, and other ongoing medical treatments. They may also need to miss significant time from work or be unable to return to work at all. This can result in lost income and other financial hardships.

At Alvarez Law Offices, we understand how devastating amputation is and are committed to helping you seek justice and the maximum compensation you are owed. Our Crown Point amputation lawyers can help you hold the at-fault party accountable and fight for a favorable settlement or, if necessary, a favorable jury verdict.

  • Construction accidents, including those involving falls, falling debris, and more
