Amputation Injury Cases
Cincinnati Injury Lawyer
An amputation refers to the removal of a body extremity by trauma, prolonged
constriction, or surgery. Sometimes it becomes necessary to amputate a
body part to control the individual's pain or to control the spread
of a disease such as gangrene.
Traumatic amputation is an unexpected amputation that occurs at the scene
of an accident, in which case the limb is partially or completely severed
as a direct result of the accident. For example, a person's arm can
be severed from a
motorcycle accident, or a meat cutter's hand can be severed from a sharp cutting tool
at the factory. There can also be instances where a surgeon or doctor
can make a mistake during a procedure or surgery, requiring the amputation
of a limb. This would also fall into the
medical malpractice category. Add something regarding medical malpractice In many cases a
body part will become injured as a result of an accident and medical doctors
have no other option but to amputate the limb after all other efforts
to save the limb have failed.
Sometimes when a body part is completely severed it can be reattached,
especially when special care has been taken to preserve the severed body
part or stump. With partial amputations, some of the soft-tissue connection
remains, and depending on the severity of the injury, the severed body
part may or may not be reattached. There are a number of complications
that are associated with an amputated body part, some of which include
severe bleeding, shock and infection.
Common causes of this type of catastrophic injury include:
