Do I have a valid claim?
Amputation is when a limb is severed, either in an accident or in a planned
surgery. Limbs include arms and legs. An amputation can be partial or
total. Partial amputations do not remove the entire arm or leg, but only
a portion. Amputations can also include finger amputations, toe amputations,
hand and foot amputations, or part of the arm or leg. Because every amputation
is different in its location and its scope, if you are going to file a
lawsuit due to your amputation injury, you need a dedicated New York City
personal injury attorney who understands the complexities of your injury.
There are two major types of amputation. The first type is traumatic amputation,
which is an unintentional amputation that occurs because of some sort
of trauma to the limb. Traumatic amputations are often caused by some
type of accident such as a
car accident. Car accidents can cause serious amputation injuries because the metal
in cars can sever a limb with the extreme force of an accident. Amputations
also occur in
work accidents and accidents with machinery. Mechanical failures of machinery can cause
finger, arm, and hand movements if the hand is caught in the malfunctioning machine.
The second type of amputation is surgical amputation, which is a scheduled
procedure to remove a limb. There are many different causes for surgical
amputation, including diabetes, circulatory problems, bone infection,
or other medical issues. An amputation can be the result of
medical malpractice if a doctor failed to diagnose or failed to treat a condition before it
reached the point of amputation. Medical malpractice can also occur in
the amputation procedure itself. In extreme cases, the amputation is performed
on the wrong part of the body or on the wrong patient. If you have been
the victim of medical malpractice during an amputation, you should speak
with experienced Brooklyn personal injury lawyers about your legal rights.
