Amputation

PA Amputation Accident Attorneys, Freeburn Hamilton


An amputation is defined as the surgical removal of all or part of a limb. Each year approximately 185,000 amputations are performed throughout the United States with nearly 2 million people living with limb loss.

There are many reasons one might have to undergo amputation – the most common being poor circulation due to damage or narrowing of the arteries. Without adequate blood circulation the bodies cells begin to deteriorate due to lack of oxygen and nutrients resulting in the affected areas tissue dying.

Causes of amputation include:

  • Severe injury – resulting from a motor vehicle accident or serious burn.
  • Cancerous tumor in the bone or muscle.
  • Serious infection
  • Thickening of nerve tissue
  • Frostbite
  • Medical Malpractice
