Minnesota Leg Amputation Attorney

Twenty-two percent of all amputations are related to trauma from an accident where blood vessels get destroyed and tissue dies.  When infection sets in, if it is not treated aggressively, it can spread through the body and cause permanent damage which can often lead to amputation.

Surgeons will perform debridement which involves removing fragmented bone and compromised tissue.  This method is also seen in burn injuries.  The uneven areas of the bone will be smoothed to prevent pain, and in some instances, surgeons will insert temporary drains to drain blood and other fluids that may collect.

When the limb is amputated, the muscles are divided and shaped to allow for comfortable contour in the stump.  Surgeons will also minimize pain by dividing and protecting the nerves.

Limb Amputation Causes

A variety of situations can cause traumatic limb amputations, including:

  • Car Accidents
  • Truck Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Pedestrian Accidents
  • Product Liability Accidents
  • Medical Malpractice

Risks and complications of limb amputations include:

  • stiffness and infection
  • the wound not healing adequately
  • phantom pain
  • hematoma
  • deformity in the joints
  • chronic neuroma
  • death of skin flaps (necrosis)

When you suffer a limb amputation, the expenses can quickly add up.  Many of which include medical expenses, lost wages, job retraining, medical equipment, physical therapy and prosthetics.

If you have been involved in an accident and were forced to undergo a limb amputation, it is important to seek legal advice because you may be entitled to a settlement.
