Loss of Limbs & Amputation
Injuries Attorney in Los Angeles, CA

The Law Offices of Jacob Emrani:
Los Angeles based personal injury attorneys serving all of California

The loss of a limb due to accidents and injuries, known as traumatic amputation, is life changing if not fatal. Amputation can involve a leg, foot, toe, arm, hand, or finger. In addition to lifelong physical impairments, it can have mental, emotional, and financial impacts. The Law Offices of Jacob Emrani is your Los Angeles amputation injury attorney; we can hold those who caused your injury accountable and get maximum compensation.

According to The American Journal of Surgery, the most common cause of amputation is blunt trauma, which accounted for 83% of the 8,910 amputees tracked in the study. Motor vehicle accidents cause the most amputations, but accidents with factory, farm, and power tools frequently lead to limb loss as well. In the United States, there are about 2 million amputees, according to estimates by the Amputee Coalition of America; every year, there are about 185,000 new lower extremity amputations.

Complete Amputation vs. Partial Amputation

If a body part is completely severed, it’s said to be a complete amputation. Reattaching a severed limb or digit is complex, but possible if proper care is taken for the severed body part. A partial amputation is one in which some soft tissue remains attached after the accident. This doesn’t necessarily make it easier to reattach the limb/digit. If the injury is severe, surgical amputation may be necessary.

Possible Complications

Our amputation accident attorney may look at complications resulting from your accident and subsequent amputation in calculating a settlement to pursue. Potential complications may include severe bleeding. Infection and shock may also occur. The long-term consequences of an amputation must be considered as well, which include significant physical limitations and emotional and psychological effects. Prosthetics and other adaptive devices may be required for the rest of a person’s life.

Common Causes of Loss of Limb & Amputation Injuries

Motor Vehicle Accidents : Limbs can be crushed in car, motorcycle, train, and even boat crashes, or severed by sharp pieces of metal.

Heavy Machinery: Mishaps with industrial machinery may occur if it’s not safeguarded, inspected, or employees aren’t properly trained.

Defective Products :Defects in a machine, part, or automotive component can cause severe injuries; a manufacturer, installer, or employer may be held liable

Medical Malpractice: A doctor’s, surgeon’s, or other healthcare worker’s negligence can lead to an amputation, and astronomical medical bills.

Electric shock, burns, explosions, gunshots, industrial cable/wire mishaps, and door accidents can cause loss of limbs as well.

Medical Expenses/Cost of Amputation

Amputations are classified as catastrophic injuries per California personal injury law. The costs are difficult to calculate. Hospital stays may range from weeks to months. Amputees often require inpatient rehab and physical therapy, which may extend for years past the initial recovery period. Beyond medical care, there is the cost of in-home modifications and vehicle upgrades. All the while, loss of income is problematic because the individual may miss extended periods of work, if they ever return to their job at all.

Why You Need a Los Angeles Amputation Injury Lawyer

An experienced amputation attorney can analyze all the medical expenses associated with a loss of a limb. These include costs of treatment leading up to and after the amputation. Your lawyer can even extrapolate the lifetime costs of the injury, and fight for economic and non-economic damages such as pain and suffering. They can also hold a negligent party accountable for your injuries, and pursue maximum compensation, while working with investigators and insurance companies on your behalf.
