Who Could Be Held Liable for An Amputation Injury?

Several parties could be held liable for an accident that resulted in the loss of a limb, including:

Negligent Individuals

If the amputation resulted from the negligent actions of another person, such as a reckless driver or a property owner who failed to maintain safe premises, they may be held liable for the injury.

Employers

If the amputation occurred in the workplace due to unsafe working conditions, inadequate training, or employer negligence, the employer may be held liable for the injury under workers’ compensation laws.

Product Manufacturers

If a defective or dangerous product caused the amputation injury, such as a defective medical device, malfunctioning machine, or faulty tool, the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer may be held liable.

Property Owners

Property owners have a legal duty to maintain safe premises and warn visitors of any hazards that could cause harm. If an amputation injury occurs on someone else’s property due to negligence the property owner may be held liable for the injury.

Government Entities

In cases involving accidents on public property or involving government vehicles, government entities may be held liable for the injury.

Healthcare Providers

If medical negligence or malpractice leads to the loss of a limb, such as surgical errors, misdiagnosis, or delayed treatment of an injury or condition, healthcare providers may be liable for the resulting harm.

I throughly enjoyed working with Erik and the Child & Jackson firm. I was unfortunate enough to be in an automobile accident, him and his team really took care of me and helped me win my case. I am satisfied with all the help and the outcome of the lawsuit. I would definitely work with Child & Jackson if the time comes again. Thank you for everything.

Child & Jackson came highly recommended and did a great job. Unfortunately, after my case settled for coverage maximum, I was in need of their services again. I didn’t even consider going anywhere else. Very caring people.

I was referred to Child & Jackson from a family/friend who had a good experience with them. To my surprise, I actually got to meet and speak with Mr. Child, who was so down to earth (we all know how attorneys can be intimidating). Mr. Child assured me he and his team will take care of me and they kept their words.

I was in a slip and fall injury while 8 months pregnant. My case was difficult as it was a premises case, however, I was referred to Child & Jackson and they fought for my case to justify my injuries. The paralegal was excellent and very through. She was also available whenever I had any questions and walked me through the entire process!

What Are the Short and Long-Term Effects Of An Amputation?

The short and long-term effects of the loss of a limb can vary depending on factors such as the level of amputation, the individual’s overall health, and the specific circumstances surrounding the injury. 

The short-term effects of this type of injury include:

Pain

After the amputation surgery, a person may experience significant pain at the surgical site, which is typically managed with medication.

Surgical Complications

Surgical complications can occur, such as infection, blood loss, or adverse reactions to anesthesia.

Phantom Limb Sensations

Many people experience phantom limb sensations, where they feel sensations or pain in the limb that has been amputated.

Mobility Challenges

Immediately after the amputation, a person may experience difficulties with balance and mobility as they adjust to using assistive devices such as crutches, a wheelchair, or a prosthetic limb.

The long-term effects include:

Chronic Pain

Some people may experience chronic pain in the residual limb or phantom limb, which can persist for months or even years after the surgery.

Physical Rehabilitation

Long-term rehabilitation and physical therapy may be required to improve function, mobility, and strength.

Prosthetic Use

For a person who chooses to use a prosthetic limb, ongoing adjustments, maintenance, and replacement of prosthetic devices can be required throughout their lifetime.

Lifestyle Modifications

A person may need to make significant lifestyle modifications to accommodate their amputation, including changes in occupation, recreational activities, and daily routines.

What Compensation is Available for Amputation Injury Victims?

Amputation injury accident victims may be entitled to the following types of economic and non-economic damages:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Rehabilitation and assistive devices
  • Home modifications
  • Loss of consortium
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional distress
  • Permanent disability

What is the Statute of Limitations in California?

You will have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the negligent party and pursue compensation. If you fail to file a lawsuit within this time frame, your case may be dismissed, barring you from pursuing compensation in the future. When you hire an amputation injury attorney, you can feel confident that your case will be filed correctly and within the statute of limitations.
