What Are the Leading Causes of Amputations?

There are roughly 185,000 amputations across the nation annually. About 2.7 million people in the United States live with the consequences of an amputated limb. Unfortunately, many of these amputations are the result of avoidable accidents and acts of negligence.

Some of the most common causes of amputations include:

Sometimes amputations are traumatic, meaning that a limb is severed suddenly in a traumatic accident. Other times, amputations are surgical, which can be necessary when a wound doesn’t heal correctly or if a limb is very severely damaged in an accident.

What Damages Can I Get If I’ve Suffered a Traumatic Amputation in Orange County, CA?

When you’ve lost a limb in an Orange County accident, you can generally seek compensation to cover your financial losses (economic damages) and the trauma and suffering you’ve endured (non-economic damages).

Our amputation injury attorneys in Orange County can help you seek money for:

  • Surgery
  • Medical devices
  • Prosthetics
  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation and therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Physical scarring
  • Reduced quality of life

How much money can you expect to get for your amputation injury? It depends. Research suggests that the average lifetime medical cost of an amputation injury is $509,275. Of course, this doesn’t factor in a loss of income, out-of-pocket expenses, or the personal and subjective trauma an amputation injury can cause.

Ultimately, many different factors will impact what your amputation injury case is worth, including your age, changes in your earning capacity, the specific limb you’ve lost, comparative negligence, and the overall impact of the lost limb on your life.

At Bridgford, Gleason & Artinian, our Orange County personal injury attorneys will work hard to ensure that your settlement is an accurate representation of what your amputation injury claim is worth.
