A Closer Look At The Definition Of Amputation
An amputation is the removal of a body part. It is most commonly used to describe the loss of a limb, such as a hand, foot, arm or leg. Amputation can also refer to the loss of a body part that is not typically thought of as a limb, such as a portion of the tongue or the top of the foot.
Amputation can be either partial or complete. A partial amputation refers to the loss of a body part that remains attached to the rest of the body. A complete amputation refers to the loss of a body part that is completely removed from the body. The loss of a toe, finger or part of the foot is considered a partial amputation. The loss of a hand, foot, arm or leg is considered a complete amputation.
Accident And Injury Scenarios Commonly Leading To Amputation
Amputation injuries can be caused by many different types of accidents. Automobile accidents are a common cause of these injuries. Other common causes of amputation injuries include workplace accidents, construction accidents and defective products.
An amputation can result from or be an eventual consequence of:
- A crush injury
- A severe burn
- A traumatic injury to the limb
- A medical emergency, such as a blood clot or gangrene
- A condition that causes the limb to become necrotic
- A condition that causes the limb to become infected
- The loss of blood flow to the limb
An amputation injury often results in lifelong disabilities. Our attorneys will work tirelessly to ensure you have the resources you need to live as normally as possible in this difficult new reality.
