Circumstances Leading to Loss of Limbs

  • Motor vehicle accidents
, such as truck accidents
  • Accidents involving industrial equipment and machinery
  • Medical malpractice, such as surgical errors

Loss of limbs can happen in an accident, or may happen later as a result of the catastrophic injuries sustained in the accident. These catastrophic injuries can have catastrophic consequences for both the victim and his or her family. 

Lasting Effects of Catastrophic Injuries

Victims of amputation suffer many catastrophic consequences. They lose mobility, potentially preventing them from walking or using their arms to eat or bathe. In most cases, loss of limbs also means job loss. While a person missing a limb may still have the ability to work, he or she may not be able to perform their current job any longer. This could mean cuts in pay and benefits, or a loss of income altogether. The loss of mobility and the inability to perform on the job can lead to an inability to care for your family. 

The family as a whole can become strained after such injuries, especially if the victim provided the primary source of income. Other family members may have to assist in providing care. This could potentially involve leaving a job or quitting school to do so. These injuries can impact the well-being of the entire family for years to come.
