What Are the Main Causes of Amputations?

More than 1 million amputations occur globally every year, one every 30 seconds, as reported by Pro Medical East (PME). Approximately 2.1 million people in the U.S. are living with limb loss, and that number is expected to double by 2050. Limb loss can be caused by injury or disease. Amputations caused by injury can occur in two different ways:

  • Traumatic amputation: A limb may be torn off in a car crash, a workplace accident, or another type of injury.
  • Surgical amputation: Injury in an accident damages a limb so severely that it must be surgically removed.

Many different types of accidents can result in amputation or loss of limb. Common causes of injury-related amputations include:

What Is the Impact of Amputation on a Victim’s Life?

Loss of a limb can be one of the most traumatic events a person can experience. In addition to physical pain and suffering and long-term disability, this type of injury can cause significant emotional distress and mental trauma. Losing a body part can have life-altering consequences, not only for victims but for their families and friends, as well. In addition to hospitalization and surgical and medical treatment, amputation victims must come to terms with their disfigurement, go through physical therapy and rehabilitation, and learn how to use prosthetic limbs to function independently in life.

Forms of Compensation Available for Amputation/Loss of Limb

If someone else caused your injuries and amputation, you may be entitled to seek compensation from the at-fault party. Damages for amputation/loss of limb can be extensive. They may include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation
  • Prosthetic limbs
  • Lost income
  • Loss of future earning potential
  • Temporary or permanent disability
  • Job retraining program
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Punitive damages (designed to punish the defendant for wrongdoing) in some cases

The stakes are high in most amputation cases, and insurance companies have teams of lawyers to fight against your claim. Your best chance of recovering the compensation you need to move forward with your life is to have an experienced Bennington amputation injury lawyer handling your case.
