Causes of Amputation

Long Beach Amputation Lawyer

An amputation is necessary in two types of situations: traumatic injuries and diseases. There are many types of accidents and medical conditions that could warrant amputation, and some of them are preventable. If you or someone you love had to undergo full or partial amputation of a limb, you may have legal recourse.

Contact a Long Beach amputation attorney at our firm to see how we could help you.

Diseases That Warrant Amputation

Some diseases, if they are not caught and treated in a timely fashion, can damage the tissue so severely that amputation is necessary. Those conditions include:

  • Gangrene
  • Frostbite
  • Sepsis
  • Tumors
  • Bone or Bone Marrow Infections

Many of these conditions can be treated with antibiotics or minor surgery. A timely and accurate diagnosis is necessary to prevent extreme measures such as life-altering amputation.

Traumatic Amputation

Many amputations result from severe and catastrophic injuries. Common accidents that can lead to amputation include car accidents, big rig accidents, motorcycle accidents, and workplace accidents. If the tissue, nerves, muscle or bones in a limb are damaged beyond repair, then amputation would likely be necessary. Amputation can also prevent disease from spreading to other parts of the body.

Contacting McGee, Lerer & Associates

Amputation can dramatically alter an individual's life. It can prevent or impede a person from performing their job duties and earning a living, it can make them virtually immobile, and it can even prevent them from performing routine, day-to-day activities like brushing their teeth or eating. If you or someone you love has experienced amputation, caused either by a disease or severe trauma, contact a Long Beach personal injury attorney at McGee, Lerer & Associates to see how we can help.
