How Amputations Occur & Who Is Liable
Generally speaking, amputations occur in one of two ways: by accident as a result of a traumatic event or surgically out of necessity when a limb cannot be saved.
Amputations often recur as a result of:
- Motor vehicle accidents, including motorcycle and truck accidents
- Construction accidents
- Unsafe conditions on someone’s property
- Defective and/or dangerous products
Medical malpractice can also play a role in amputation injuries. In some, relatively rare instances, a surgeon may make a mistake, leading to accidental amputation. In other, somewhat more common cases, a medical professional may fail to properly treat an injury, illness, or condition. This may, ultimately, require surgical amputation if the affected limb cannot be saved.
In any case, the person or entity — whether it’s the operator of a semi-truck or a hospital that was negligent in its hiring of a surgeon — responsible for the accident or incident that led to your injuries can be held liable.
