At Fox Law, we retain all of the necessary experts for you to receive the full lifetime compensation you deserve for your amputation injury.

The life-long effects of a Traumatic Amputation Injury

Traumatic amputation injury is the loss of a part of a body during a serious accident, such as an arm amputation, leg amputation, foot amputation, hand amputation, toe amputation or finger amputation.  Traumatic amputation injury is rare.  The loss of limb usually happens immediately during the accident; however, the amputation may also occur a few days later.  The most common cause of a traumatic amputation injury is Construction accidents.  Car accidents are the second most common cause of traumatic amputation injury.

Amputation injury is physically and psychologically traumatic.  Prosthetics are expensive. In the U.S., a typical prosthetic limb can start at $10,000 and go up to around $15,000.  Amputation usually requires a hospital stay of five to fourteen days or more and 50% to 80% of amputees experience the phenomenon of phantom limbs.

Phantom limb pain is when an amputee feels body parts that are no longer there.  The sensations can range from itching, aching, and burning, to feeling tense, dry, wet, or they can feel their non-existent limb moving.  Phantom sensations and pain may also be experienced in an unrelated part of the body.  If phantom pain is experienced for more than 6 months, it is likely that is will not improve.

Heterotopic ossification is another repercussion of suffering an amputation and it is most common among those who suffered a head injury simultaneous with the limb amputation injury.  Soldiers often experience this side effect.  Heterotopic ossification is when the brain signals the bone to grow instead of scar tissue to form, and nodules and other growth can interfere with a prosthetic and sometimes require further operations.

The recovery process for an amputation injury is long.  An amputee must exercise to improve muscle strength and control, and do activities to help restore the ability to carry out daily physical necessities.  An amputee must also learn how to use artificial limbs and assisting devices.  While many amputees have regained autonomy, some amputees must adjust to the fact that they will never be completely independent again.  Therefore, emotional support, including counseling, is sometimes prescribed after the surgery.

Because amputations are expensive, painful, psychologically traumatic, and permanent, it is important that an amputee hires a lawyer who can convey to the jury that the amputee does not have the luxury of walking away from the case when the trial is over. Amputees should focus on the healing process and let an experienced Amputation Injury Lawyer handle the rest.
