Common Causes of Amputation Injuries

Amputations are among the most serious, life-altering injuries a person can suffer. These catastrophic injuries can arise from any type of traumatic event or accident. In some cases, amputation may be medically necessary due to injury, illness, or disease.

Some of the most common causes of amputations include:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: High-speed collisions, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, and other vehicle crashes often result in severe injuries, including the loss of limbs.
  • Workplace Accidents: Industrial machinery malfunctions, construction site mishaps, or unsafe working conditions can lead to traumatic amputations.
  • Medical Malpractice: Surgical errors, misdiagnosis of infections, or complications during medical procedures may necessitate amputations.
  • Defective Products: Faulty equipment, dangerous consumer products, or malfunctioning machinery can cause traumatic limb injuries.

These are just some of the many ways in which amputation injuries can occur. If you believe that someone else was at fault for the incident that led to your or your loved one’s amputation injury, you could be entitled to financial compensation.

The Lasting Impact of an Amputation Injury

Few injuries are as serious or utterly life changing as amputations. These injuries tend to have significant, far-reaching impacts, extending beyond physical impairments and affecting nearly every aspect of a person’s life.

Amputees may experience:

  • Physical Challenges: Losing a limb can impact everything from your mobility to your dexterity and overall physical capabilities. Amputation can also lead to significant pain and “phantom limb,” among other conditions.
  • Loss of Independence: You may find yourself unable to complete once-ordinary tasks, such as walking, driving, cooking, or caring for yourself, after an amputation injury.
  • Psychological Trauma: Coping with the loss of a limb may lead to depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or body image issues.
  • Financial Burdens: The costs associated with medical treatment, prosthetics, rehabilitation, and future care can be substantial, causing significant financial hardship.
  • Loss of Earning Capacity: Amputation injuries often result in temporary or permanent disability, leading to a significant reduction in earning capacity.
  • Pain and Suffering: The physical pain, emotional distress, and diminished quality of life resulting from an amputation injury can be immense.

At Effres & Effres, we believe that no one who has suffered an injury due to the negligence of another should have to simply face the future alone. Our goal is to not only help you secure the financial compensation you need to get back on your feet but also to fight for the justice you deserve so that you can begin to heal and move forward with your life.

Recoverable Damages in Amputation Injury Claims

The purpose of filing a personal injury claim is to seek fair financial compensation for the damages, or the collective economic and non-economic losses, you have endured as a result of your injury.

By filing an amputation injury claim, victims may seek compensation for:

  • Medical expenses, including present and future medical treatments, surgeries, hospital stays, rehabilitation, medications, and prosthetic devices.
  • Future care costs, such as long-term care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, psychological counseling, and ongoing medical supervision.
  • Lost income/wages, including compensation for the income/wages lost during the recovery period and any future loss of earning capacity due to disability.
  • Pain and suffering, which includes monetary compensation for physical pain, emotional distress, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Rehabilitation and assistive devices, including funding for specialized rehabilitation programs, assistive technologies, and prosthetic limbs.
  • Home modifications, including financial support for necessary home modifications to accommodate a disabled individual.

Our Agoura Hills amputation lawyers can help you understand the available damages in your case, as well as the potential overall value of your claim.

    Our Clients' Success Stories

    • "He never failed to answer my questions, and always gave me valuable advice"
      I found Effres & Associate by chance. Not knowing what to do after my accident, I surfed on the web and came across this company. After reviewing the testimonials, I decided to call them. For some reason, I did not want to call those big law firms that have big billboards everywhere. I went to talk to Justin on the next day, and found him to be a truly concerned young attorney. He is not a pushy lawyer, but always friendly and professional. He never failed to answer my questions, and always gave me valuable advice. After almost two years dealing with the case, Justin brought a successful ending to the case. Thanks, Justin.

    • "I would hope that nobody NEEDS to have an injury lawyer, but if they did, I would absolutely recommend Effres and Associates in a heartbeat."
      In August of 2015 I was involved in a serious motorcycle accident that involved the loss of operation of my dominant arm, as well as a traumatic brain injury. My parents had contacted Effres and associates (they were referred to them by another lawyer for another injury to a relative) and they drove from Agoura Hills down to Pasadena immediately, surveyed the accident scene, and then arrived at the hospital. Over the next two and a half years, Justin Effres and his father Steven Effres, relentlessly pursued this case for me, even when at one point it seemed like there wasn't much that could be done to resolve the situation. I had to go through the typical trial stuff such as meetings, deposition, medical appointments for Effres' firm and for the defense, but Effres did all that he could to make everything doable and smooth as possible for me. My perception of lawyers was certainly changed for the better after working with Justin and his dad, because of their genuine sincerity. They were always available and fully knowledgeable of the questions that my family and I had for them. Despite the case dragging on for over 2 years, they never left me hanging or feeling like the case was going nowhere, because Justin kept searching for answers and kept me updated with everything. All of his hard work paid off in a successful outcome for me. I would hope that nobody NEEDS to have an injury lawyer, but if they did, I would absolutely recommend Effres and Associates in a heartbeat.

    • "Everyone in the office was always pleasant and helpful."
      Dear Mr. Effres and Office, It has been almost a year since we accepted the settlement for Jonathan and we wanted to thank you all for your help. We will not forget the empathy you showed us during the stressful time we were going through as a result of Jonathan’s injury. Everyone in the office was always pleasant and helpful. We also recognize the thoroughness with which our case was prepared should it have gone to trial. We won’t hesitate to refer you to our friends should they need an attorney. Jonathan is starting kindergarten next week and has a full-time mom now (since February)! We are all enjoying our new house. Wishing you all the best

    • "Justice was done."
      Dear Mr. Effres, I was the juror that took your card and assured you I’d call, as time is such a premium in our lives, dropping you a line is much easier. Thank you for the offer of our suggestions and/or comments. What impressed me the most and what seemed the be a determining factor was the diligence in which you presented the evidence, your depth of conviction for Maria’s case was deeply felt. Your calmness in dealing with the judge with the study in the strength of the human character! The only suggestion I would make (and this is coming from a color consultant point of view) would be to wear dark suits, white shirt and a striking tie (LOVE THE SCALE OF JUSTICE TIE), other than that – change nothing. Please pass on my best wishes to Maria even though the money could not begin to suffice for her injury the quality of her life may be enhanced, they are a beautiful family and were represented by a compassionate, thorough, competent lawyer. Justice was done. God bless you. by K. R.
