California Lawyers for Amputation and Loss of Limb Cases
Amputation injuries are permanent injuries that may result in lifelong disability. An amputation, by definition, is the loss of a body part, usually a finger, hand, or arm, or a toe, foot, or leg. Traumatic amputation injuries occur when the limb is wholly or partially severed in an accident. Amputation can also be surgically performed when a limb cannot be spared due to serious injuries. Victims of traumatic amputation are at risk for serious complications, including bleeding, infection, shock, and death.
