Philadelphia Amputation Lawyer

Philadelphia Amputation LawyerOur Philadelphia amputation lawyer represents clients who suffered limb loss due to serious accidents, medical malpractice, and defective products.

Amputations for which victims may be compensated can involve arms, legs, hands, feet, fingers, and/or toes. Limb loss/amputations can have catastrophic effects on victims’ lives, including:

  • lost employment and ability to find new employment
  • extensive and repeated surgeries, long-term hospitalizations and medical care
  • long-term therapy
  • severe and chronic pain
  • disfigurement
  • reduced quality of life / emotional distress
  • reduced mobility

Amputations / Limb Loss Caused by Accidents

Amputation cases handled by a Philadelphia amputation lawyer frequently involve limb loss/amputation resulting from traffic and other types of accidents. In some cases, an amputation may occur during an accident. In others, the amputation may result from an infection that develops following an accident injury.

Accidents that may lead to limb loss/amputation include, but are not limited to:

Defendants that may be liable for amputation/limb loss injuries sustained in these accidents may include:

  • car, truck, and motorcycle owners and drivers
  • non-employer third parties involved in construction and other work site accidents
  • property owners and others responsible for premises on which slip and fall accidents occur
  • owners of dogs that bite or attack victims who sustain injuries resulting in amputation

Amputations/Limb Loss Caused by Defective Products

Our Philadelphia amputation lawyer may also handle cases involving amputation/limb loss caused by defective products. Defective products that can lead to a victim’s amputation include:

  • Defective Toys (e.g., toys that can cause a puncture, burn, or other injuries resulting in infection or other need for amputation)
  • Defective Children’s Products (e.g., partial finger amputations caused by children’s baking ovens)
  • Defective Household Products
  • Defective Drugs and Medical Devices (e.g., the drug Invokana, which is linked to an increased risk of a leg, foot, and toe amputations)
  • Defective Work Place Machinery

Amputations / Limb Loss Caused by Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice can also result in preventable limb loss/amputation. Medical negligence that can lead to amputation injuries includes:

  • Rrong-site surgery (removal of wrong appendage or limb)
  • Unnecessary surgery (surgical removal of a limb or appendage when removal was unnecessary)
  • Diagnosis errors (failure to diagnose infection, diabetes, cancer, blood clot, or other medical condition resulting in an ultimate need for amputation)
  • Treatment errors (failure to adequately treat medical conditions, resulting in an ultimate need for amputation)
  • Prescription, administration, and/or failure to monitor the effects of medication causing need for amputation
  • Errors during or following limb or appendage surgery resulting in a need for amputation
