Amputation Attorneys in Indianapolis

Helping You Fight for a Fair Recovery

Accidental amputation—whether as a result of a car accidentworkplace injury, medical malpractice, or some other catastrophic event—is a devastating, life-changing injury. In many cases, individuals who suffer amputations are unable to return to work, either temporarily or permanently. Medical treatment is typically very costly, making these types of injuries incredibly expensive. And this does not take the emotional and physical toll of an amputation into account.

How Negligence Leads to Amputation Injuries

According to the Amputee Coalition, there are approximately 185,000 amputations each year in the United States. Trauma is the second leading cause of amputations after vascular disease, accounting for 45% of all amputation injuries. Unfortunately, these traumatic events are often the direct or indirect result of negligence.

Some common examples of how negligence leads to amputation injuries include:

  • A doctor fails to address the signs of sepsis in a patient, leading to gangrene and emergency amputation
  • A drunk driver crashes into another motorist, causing the motorist to be partially ejected from her vehicle and ultimately leading to accidental amputation
  • A child is bitten by an unrestrained dog, leading to infection in the child’s hand and necessitating amputation of the affected area
  • A construction worker accidentally amputates his own finger while using a defective piece of equipment that lacked the proper safety warnings

These are just some examples of how negligence can lead to amputation; there are myriad ways in which someone else’s careless, reckless, or intentional actions can cause an innocent person to suffer an amputation injury.

Understanding Your Rights

If you suffered an amputation injury as a result of another person, company, manufacturer, or another entity’s negligence, you have the right to take legal action. If you were injured at work or while conducting duties within the scope of your employment, you may be able to recover workers’ compensation based on the amputation injury benefits schedule. If one or more of your limbs was amputated in an accident that occurred outside of the workplace, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit and seek damages from the liable party.
