St. Louis Loss of Limb Accident Attorney

When another’s negligent behavior results in an amputation injury

There are very few injuries as permanent and disabling as a loss of limb. Loss of limb, or amputation, can affect every aspect of day-to-day life. This type of catastrophic injury can impact the ability to perform your job, take part in your favorite activities, and do the daily tasks you once took for granted. Even as medical technologies continually advance, the loss of a limb is still a life-changing injury.

How do limb loss injuries happen?

Any type of serious or catastrophic accident can cause a traumatic amputation injury. However, some types of negligent activity or accidents may have more potential to lead to loss of limb, including:

  • Car crashes, which account for an overwhelming amount of traumatic amputations
  • Truck accidents, where passenger cars tend to take the force of colliding with a commercial vehicle
  • Motorcycle wrecks, as bikers often do have the protection that other motor vehicle drivers are afforded
  • Product liability accidents, like losing a finger or toe to a defective blender, lawnmower, or snowblower
  • Firearms or explosives accidents, as things like fireworks or firearms projectiles have the capacity to shatter bones or tear muscles to the point where amputation may be necessary
  • Electrocution, which can result in burn injuries severe enough to require amputation
  • Dog bites and animal attacks, which can result in loss of limb or extremities, especially in small children

An experienced personal injury attorney at The Hayden Law Firm will work to establish liability for your injuries, and then demand fair compensation for your losses.
