The Most Common Causes of Injuries Resulting in Amputation
Amputation is most commonly required as a result of reduced circulation. Oftentimes this is the result of peripheral arterial disease or another health condition. But in other circumstances, amputation is required because of, or is the direct result of, something else entirely:
These types of scenarios can often be traced back to someone else's negligence, such as a car crash caused by another driver or a runaway infection caused by an error in the emergency room. If negligence is the reason the amputation is required, then you may be able to pursue compensation in a claim against the at-fault party.
