Common Causes of Amputation Injuries
As the name suggests, traumatic amputations result from catastrophic events, such as accidents and intentional acts of violence.
Some of the most common causes of amputation injuries include:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Industrial accidents
- Agricultural accidents
- Construction accidents
- Sports and recreation accidents
- Dog bites and attacks
- Military combat
- Assault and battery
- Machinery accidents
- Crush injuries and falling object accidents
- Defective products
- Medical malpractice
Sometimes, an amputation injury is complete, meaning the limb or extremity is completely severed from the body. In other instances, the amputation injury is incomplete. When this is the case, surgical amputation—or controlled, medical removal of the partially amputated limb or extremity—may be required. Sometimes, partly or completely amputated limbs or extremities may be successfully reattached, but this is not always the case.
Who Is Liable for an Amputation Injury?
If someone else—whether it was another person, a company, a product manufacturer, or another entity—was responsible for the incident that led to your amputation injury, you may be able to hold them liable for your resulting damages by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
To have a case, you will need to prove that the other person or party (known as the defendant) had a legal responsibility to take and/or avoid certain actions that could cause foreseeable injury. This is known as the “duty of care.” You will also have to prove that the defendant breached the duty of care, typically by acting negligently or wrongfully. Lastly, you will have to prove that the defendant’s conduct was the cause of your injury, whether directly or indirectly.
At Amanda Demanda Law Group, our Miami amputation injury attorneys have the resources to effectively investigate claims and bring powerful evidence against negligent parties. We strive to hold these parties accountable for the harm they have caused, while also seeking the justice and fair compensation our clients deserve.
