Our Lawrence Amputation Injury Lawyers Are Here To Help You Move Forward

Amputations often occur after car accidents, severe burn injuries, or other traumatic injuries. About 2 million Americans are living with amputations, and at least 185,000 of them occur every year. If you have experienced an amputation caused by another’s negligence, it is important that you speak with our knowledgeable Lawrence amputation injury lawyers at Joseph, Hollander & Craft.

Accidents That Cause Amputations

One of the leading causes of amputation injuries in the United States are motor-vehicle accidents, semi-truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents. This typically occurs when a victim’s limb or limbs are trapped or crushed during a collision.

Workplace accidents also present a dangerous potential for an amputation injury. Jobs that require the operation of heavy machinery carry the risk of a person being pinned between a machine and a wall or crate. Construction workers, machinists, factory workers, carpenters, warehouse workers, and electricians are all at particular risk.

Burn injuries are another significant cause of amputations. Fire victims may face the loss of extremities or appendages as a result of the severity of damage from their burn injuries. Amputation accidents can also result from defective products causing injury.

JHC’s Lawrence, Kansas, personal injury attorneys know how to get you the compensation you are owed whenever a traumatic accident results in amputation.

Amputation Complications

The loss of a limb is not the only thing that can happen to you due to an amputation. Complications that may follow the loss of a limb include:

All of this should be accounted for in your personal injury claim. If you have lost a limb due to the negligence of another person or company, JHC’s Lawrence amputation injury lawyers want to ensure you recover the money you need to pay for all consequences of that loss.

Amputation Treatment and Recovery

Surgical amputation or surgical repair of a traumatic amputation is a major operation that involves the removal of all damaged tissue, while leaving as much healthy tissue as possible. An amputation injury or procedure almost always requires a lengthy hospital stay. After the surgery, physical therapy begins slowly with gentle exercises soon after surgery.

There are many potential complications from an amputation that include bleeding, shock, and infection. Even after a successful operation, many amputees experience phantom pain, which is the sensation of pain in the amputated limb.

Sadness, anger, and frustration are common emotional trauma that results from the loss of a limb. It is not uncommon for amputees to develop depression, anxiety, or other psychological issues due to the consequences of the amputation such as loss of mobility, reduced ability to earn a living, and other changes in daily life.

The range of prostheses available for both upper and lower limb amputees continues to grow. The type of prosthesis needed depends on the level of limb loss. Some more advanced prosthetics involve controlling artificial limbs and other devices using the human brain.

When JHC’s Lawrence amputation injury lawyers take on your case, we make sure every expense, every loss, and every experience is accounted for in your claim. We don’t want you to pay for harm someone else caused you to suffer.

What are some losses that can be compensated in a claim involving an amputation injury?

If you have lost a limb in an accident, you may be eligible for compensation for your losses. Medical costs associated with an amputation are often overwhelming. This includes the amputation operation, physician fees, facility expenses, anesthesia, and medical supplies. Even after the initial hospitalization, there are significant fees for the re-hospitalizations for acute care related to the limb injury, rehabilitation, outpatient physical and occupational therapy, and the purchase of prosthetic devices.

Aside from expenses for medical treatment, there are also often losses related to lost income, including losses due to reduced earning capacity, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.

JHC’s Lawrence amputation injury lawyers will help you identify all losses and collect the proof you need to obtain the financial compensation you are due.

How common are amputations?

According to the Amputee Coalition, almost 2 million people are living with the loss of a limb in the United States. This equates to an estimated 185,000 amputations per year, and that number is expected to double by 2050. Many different types of accidents can cause an amputation injury including: car accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, train wrecks, bicycle accidents, defective products, and burn injuries.

JHC’s Lawrence amputation injury lawyers can help you with a legal claim for any and all harms that occur as a result of a traumatic incident. Call us today.

What should I do if I suffer an amputation injury?

If you are the victim of an injury that either partially or completely severed an appendage or limb, you need to get the best medical attention available to minimize the potential for serious complications including tissue infection, bone infection, or blood infection.

You should also consider treatment for the severe emotional injury that accompanies the loss of an appendage or limb. The diminished quality of life after an amputation can lead to issues involving anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and intense grief, all of which require the care of a trained professional.

Then contact one of JHC’s experienced personal injuries to pursue a claim for financial compensation.
