Limb Loss and Amputation in Pennsylvania

According to reports, every year, around 185,000 people lose their limbs in the United States. Limb loss or amputation refers to either total or partial severing due to either trauma or a surgical procedure. Fingers, toes, arms, and legs are all included in the definition of limb loss. If you or a loved one are going through such an unfortunate predicament, then it is necessary for you to get in touch with a professional and experienced Washington, PA accident lawyer. Horowitz & Logue boasts on a team of skilled lawyers who can comprehend the ramifications of the loss and help you get the right justice that you deserve.

In the United States, more than 500 people lose their limbs every day. Vascular disease such as diabetes, blocked arteries, blood clots and bone infections are the leading cause of limb loss in the US. Trauma is the leading cause of limb loss worldwide, which is the reason for 45% of amputations in the US.

Traumatic amputation happens when full or partial limb loss occurs at the time of severe injury. Catastrophic personal injury is when an accident occurs and a surgeon has no choice, but to amputate a limb. However, often the medical negligence can cause limb amputation as well. In any case, an experienced Washington, PA injury lawyer can help you deal with the consequences and get the right compensation for the loss.

Examples of accidents that can cause limb loss:

  • Being a victim of a car accident as a pedestrian
  • Being a victim of a car accident while driving or riding in it
  • Boat related accidents
  • Construction accident
  • Industrial accidents
  • Injuries due to using defective products
  • Explosion
  • An accident on a plane, train, or ferry
  • Accidents in plants or warehouses

When it comes to the immediate effect of limb loss, the first thing that a patient has to deal with is excruciating physical pain. Once they start dealing with it, there come the other issues. Since they have already lost a limb, it is obvious that it will take a toll on their daily life, activities, job and their financial status. Also, losing a limb can cause severe depression and other mental issues as well.
