If you or a loved one have suffered an amputation injury, you know just how devastating this type of catastrophic injury can be. Losing a hand, foot, arm, or leg in an accident is something that no one should have to go through – especially when the loss of limb is caused by the negligence of another party. A personal injury claim can help victims of amputation injuries recover compensation for their medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.

Types of Negligent Conduct That Can Lead to Loss of a Limb

Amputation injuries are sometimes caused by the carelessness or negligence of another individual or entity. Dismemberment may be caused by a singular traumatic event such as a car crash, motorcycle collision, truck accident, or pedestrian accident. Incidents involving heavy machinery such as construction accidents and agricultural accidents are also a top cause of amputation injuries. Fireworks accidents and explosions may also lead to losing a limb.

Amputation could also be a product of substandard medical care.

The party liable for your amputation injury may be the manufacturer of a defective product, a drunk driver, a negligent contractor at a construction site, a negligent medical provider, or a number of other individuals.
