Amputation Accidents in Missouri and Illinois

The incidence of limb loss is increasing in the United States, according to the Amputee Coalition, a national non-profit organization. Approximately, 507 people lose a limb every day. While many amputations result from circulatory problems or the effects of diabetes, nearly half of amputations result from trauma-related accidents. A worker may get a hand or foot caught in a piece of machinery; a food preparation worker may lose fingers in a meat grinder or slicer; a construction worker may lose an arm in a power tool accident. If the amputation accident is preventable and caused by the negligence of another, including an employer who allows unsafe work conditions, you may have a legal right to compensation.

Many amputations result from vehicle accidents. The blunt force of a serious car accident or motorcycle accident can cause a traumatic injury resulting in the amputation of an arm or leg. Sometimes a limb is mangled or crushed, but can still be saved without amputation. Trauma patients who undergo efforts to salvage a mangled or crushed limb in the 18 to 24 months after an accident averaged seven surgical procedures and more than 50 days in the hospital at a cost of $53,000 in hospital charges, according to the Amputee Coalition.

You should not be responsible for paying costly medical bills for hospitalization, physical therapy and prosthetics after an amputation accident if your injury was caused by the negligence of another.
