Causes of Amputation Injury in Lakeland

Losing a limb in an accident caused by the negligence of another accounts for the majority of all amputations nationwide. Studies show that forty-five percent of all amputations are caused by trauma stemming from the following:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Motorcycle Crashes
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Boating Accidents
  • Work-Related Accidents
  • Construction Site Accidents
  • Animal Attacks
  • Machinery and Equipment
  • Electrocution and Electric Shock
  • Explosions
  • Defective Products

Some accidents cause such severe injuries that gangrene, infection or other complications require surgical removal of a limb to save the life of the injured person.  In addition, medical conditions which are misdiagnosed or go untreated can result in surgical amputations.

Damages Recoverable Amputation Cases

The loss of a limb causes more than just physical pain.  Amputation can cause severe psychological disorders, including depression, anxiety, grief, denial and suicidal thoughts or feelings. Among the damages recoverable in a Florida lawsuit against the party responsible for causing a person to suffer an amputation include:

    • Medical expenses
    • Lost wages
    • Loss of future income
    • Cost of future medical care and prosthetics
    • Pain and suffering
