Amputation

Traumatic accidents that result in amputation of a limb can cause grave impact on a person’s daily living. This loss changes the victim’s life in a matter of moments, and it often takes years, at a substantial cost, to be able to return to a somewhat normal life.

Statistically, one out of every 200 people in the United States has had an amputation. Approximately 1.8 million people living with limb loss in the United States. Many incidents of limb loss or amputations are the result of an accident, which is the second leading cause of limb loss behind vascular disease. Almost 70% of accident-related amputations involve the upper-limbs with men at a significantly higher risk. Traumatic amputations occur in a variety of ways including automobile accidents, defective products, bicycling accidents, as well as workplace injuries.

Victims of catastrophic injuries typically spend prolonged periods of time in the hospital, followed by painful inpatient rehabilitation and physical therapy that can last for years. The victim misses work during this time, and many are never able to return to their previous job. As such, medical costs associated with an amputation are equally immense. As noted, victims of traumatic amputation injuries require surgery, long stays in the hospital followed by an extensive rehabilitation process. They also require ongoing future medical care including opens in a new windowphysical therapy, prosthetics, infectious disease, and orthopedic consulting costing millions of dollars. Moreover, the emotional and psychological toll of limb loss can require additional therapy and treatment. Furthermore, without the use of their lost limb, an amputee’s earning potential is forever changed and can result in loss of employment income. Further, depending on the nature of the amputation, modifications to the environment, such as the person’s home, may be necessary just so they can care for themselves. In certain instances, traumatic amputation may also result in the need to have full time attendant care to help the victim with such routine tasks as going to the bathroom and brushing their teeth.
