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.

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:
- 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.
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.
