Traumatic Amputation

Santa Monica Traumatic Amputation Attorneys

Accident Injury Attorneys at McGee, Lerer & Associates

Traumatic amputation is the total or partial removal of a limb due to sudden, physical trauma, unlike amputations resulting from disease or infection. Traumatic amputation may be necessary after serious motor vehicle accidents, accidents at the workplace, serious burns, and other catastrophic accidents. In some traumatic amputation cases, the loss of limb happens at the time of the accident. In others, a limb is injured and later amputated at a hospital.

Motor Vehicle Accident Amputation

Motor vehicle accidents that necessitate amputation are classified as catastrophic injury accidents and can often result from distracted or reckless driving. Accidents with large vehicles like commercial trucks and accidents occurring at high speeds also put drivers and passengers at an increased risk of amputation.

Some common catastrophic car accidents include:

  • Wrong-way accidents / Head-on collisions
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Falling asleep at the wheel
  • Accidents with 18-wheelers
  • Texting while driving / Distraction accidents

Surgical Amputation, Replantation, and Transplants

Traumatic accidents that result in amputation, or injuries requiring amputation, can be treated a few different ways. Depending on the severity of the injury, doctors may be able to replant or reconnect the amputated limb. Another option is to use a limb transplant from a cadaver. In many cases, transplanting and replanting are not possible, so surgical amputation is the only option.
