Amputation Injury Attorney in Harrisburg

Fight for Compensation with a Harrisburg Catastrophic Injury Lawyer

Despite advances in medical care, some injuries can be so severe that a limb or extremity cannot heal and requires amputation. The loss of one or more limbs restricts someone's ability to work in most job settings. Amputation may also affect the person's ability to care for children or handle other domestic responsibilities, leading to a potential loss of consortium lawsuit.

If you or a loved one have suffered an injury resulting in amputation, you may be owed compensation for damages related to your accident. An experienced Harrisburg catastrophic injury attorney at Metzger Wickersham is standing by to offer you a free consultation when you call (888) 286-2850.

Types of Amputation Injuries

Amputations can be either partial or complete. Partial amputations are when the body part is still attached to the body by some bone, tissue, or muscle. Complete amputations are when the limb is completely removed from the body. Crush injuries can cause serious tissue damage which can lead to the loss of a limb.

Avulsion injuries result in tearing away or stretching of the tissue around the wound, causing damage to the blood vessels, bones, nerves, and soft tissue. Guillotine amputations are, as the name suggests, clean amputations resulting in only localized damage.

Causes of Amputation Injuries

Most of the three million amputees living in the United States are males, and many of these victims lost limbs due to tragic events that could have been prevented.

Some of these events include the following:

Traumatic amputations can result from many different types of accidents. Many accidents involve the operation of heavy machinery, such as saws, forklifts, or factory equipment missing the proper safety features. Sometimes, accidents occur because someone else was negligent. For example, if an employer neglects to service a machine he or she knows to be dangerous and missing safety guards, he or she can be held liable if a worker is injured.
