Dublin Amputation Injury Lawyer
Motor vehicle collisions, workplace accidents, dog attacks, and other types of accidents can result in catastrophic injuries that may include a traumatic amputation. When a body part is completely severed in an accident, or when a surgeon must amputate a body part due to the severity of an accident, the patient’s recovery can be long and costly. If you believe another party’s negligence resulted in your amputation injury, you should seek advice from an attorney as soon as possible about moving forward with a claim. You will only have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit, and most amputation injury claims will need to be filed within two years from the date of the original accident. Contact our experienced Dublin amputation injury lawyer to learn more about your options.
What is an Amputation Injury in Dublin?
An amputation injury, according to the National Library of Medicine and MedlinePlus, is “the loss of a body part, usually a finger, toe, arm, or leg, that occurs as the result of an accident or injury.” In some cases of a complete amputation in an accident, it may be possible for a surgeon to reattach the severed body part. In accidents where there is a partial amputation but the injury is severe, a surgeon may need to amputate due to the extensive damage to the person’s soft tissue and bone. There are often serious complications that result from amputation injuries, including “bleeding, shock, and infection.”
As Johns Hopkins Medicine explains, traumatic amputations caused by accidents account for approximately 45 percent of all amputations. Other types of amputations result from diseases such as diabetes, cancer, or vascular issues. In accidents where a traumatic amputation is only partial, Johns Hopkins explains that a complete amputation is almost always necessary when the accident involves a “crush injury or severe burns” such that the person’s limb “cannot be saved.”
Common Types of Accidents Resulting in Amputation Injuries
Traumatic amputations can result from many different types of accidents in Dublin, including but not limited to the following:
- Truck accidents;
- Car accidents;
- Motorcycle accidents;
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents;
- Animal attacks, including severe dog bite injuries; and
- Workplace accidents, including accidents involving machinery.
Anyone who has suffered a traumatic amputation should discuss the specific facts of their case with an experienced Dublin amputation injury attorney. Depending upon the details of the accident, it may be possible to file a claim against one or more parties in order to seek financial compensation.
