Causes of Amputation Injury

An amputation injury can be highly traumatic for a patient, leading to physical and emotional complications. Amputations can occur due to various causes, including trauma, medical conditions, or birth defects. 

The most common cause of amputation is trauma or injury from motor vehicle crashes or industrial accidents. Other causes may include medical conditions such as diabetes or circulatory diseases, which can lead to gangrene or infection in the affected limb. Birth defects may also require amputation if they prevent proper limb use. 

Long-Term Care Needs Following an Amputation 

Following an amputation, patients must receive comprehensive care to ensure their health and well-being. This includes physical therapy to help with balance, coordination, strength training, and mobility; occupational therapy for dressing and feeding; mental health counseling for coping with depression; prosthetic fitting; wound care; pain management; nutritional counseling; and support groups.  

This long-term care can result in high medical bills, rehabilitation costs, and living expenses. An experienced San Bernardino amputation attorney at our law firm can review your accident and work with medical teams to ensure you get the money you need.

Filing a Personal Injury Claim After an Amputation

Filing a personal injury claim can help you recover the funds necessary to help with medical expenses and rehabilitation services required for recovery.

It takes investigation and countless negotiations with insurance companies. This takes time and skill.

We urge you to contact counsel to find out what applies to your situation.
