No one wants to be injured! Even a splinter or a sprain can create pain and get in your way of having a great day or accomplishing what you need to accomplish. If it were possible to live a pain free life, most people would opt-in for that! Unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to make it through an entire lifetime without encountering a single painful experience.
Serious injuries, on the other hand, can and should be avoided at all costs. Serious injures like catastrophic injuries, traumatic brain injuries, eye injuries, spinal injuries, paralysis and amputations can be prevented. These kinds of injuries are often the result of negligence, carelessness, malicious intent or failure to adhere to safety requirements.
If you or a loved one has suffered the terrible consequence of another person’s negligence, medical malpractice or other careless act that resulted in a serious injury like an amputation, contact the attorneys of Jaklitsch Law Firm. Call 301-627-8700 today to set up a consultation to discuss your case.
Serious Injury – Amputation
The term amputation refers to the removal of a body part or limb by trauma, medical disease, or surgery. When amputation is performed as a surgical procedure, it is enacted in order to minimize pain or the process of disease in the afflicted limb, such as malignancy or gangrene. In certain situations, amputation is performed on people as a way to prevent future problems or the progression of serious illnesses or cancer.
Necessary Surgical Amputations
In some cases, surgical amputations are necessary to prevent the spread of disease or because there is simply no way to save a limb that was crushed or seriously injured in a car accident or other injury. But what if the amputation was due to an untreated infection that occurred as the result of a doctor’s failure to diagnose, delayed diagnosis, misdiagnosis, retained instrument following surgery or another kind of medical malpractice?
If you have undergone an amputation that would not have been necessary if it weren’t for another person’s negligence or failure to do their job, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. The attorneys at Jaklitsch Law Firm are experienced and qualified and are here to help you. Contact a Serious Injury Attorney today to represent you and gain you the restitution you and your family deserve to compensate you for the pain and suffering you have incurred as a result of your amputation.
In the course of certain serious accidents that are injurious, a limb may be literally severed from the body, which classifies it as an amputation caused by trauma. There are different kinds of accidents that can sometimes result in this kind of amputation, such as:
- Road Accidents – this can include car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, cycle accidents and pedestrian accidents.
- Accidents at work – serious falls, crushing injuries, injuries that occurred while using or near dangerous machinery.
If you or someone you care about are the victim of an injury that caused a traumatic amputation, you may have grounds to make a claim for personal injury compensation. If you would like additional information about a serious injury claim for traumatic amputation, contact the Jaklitsch Law Firm online for information about a personal injury compensation claim.
