Common Causes of Amputation

Amputations can be the result of many different types of accidents and incidents. In many cases, amputations are the result of workplace accidents or accidents caused by someone else’s negligence.

Some of the most common causes of amputations include:

Amputations can be the result of one-time accidents or they can be the result of prolonged trauma to a limb.

The Long-Term Impact of Losing a Limb

Amputations can be devastating, both physically and emotionally. 

In addition to the pain and suffering associated with the amputation itself, victims may have to undergo multiple surgeries and other procedures, such as skin grafts and scar revisions. They may also be required to complete extensive physical and occupational therapy in order to learn how to use a prosthetic limb or adapt to life without a limb.

Depending on the nature of the amputation, victims may be unable to work or engage in the same hobbies and activities they enjoyed prior to the accident. Many amputees also suffer from ongoing psychological trauma, such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), due to the loss of a limb.

Amputations often result in the need for extensive medical care and treatment, including:

  • Surgeries
  • Rehabilitation
  • Medications
  • Prosthetics
  • Home modifications
  • And more

If you or your loved one has suffered the loss of a limb, you should not have to face the consequences alone. Our New Mexico amputation attorneys can help you fight for the full, fair recovery you are owed.

How Much Is My Case Worth?

The value of an amputation lawsuit can vary significantly based on several factors.

Some of the factors that can impact the value of a case include:

  • The extent of the amputation: The value of a limb in a personal injury lawsuit will depend on how much of the limb was amputated. For example, the loss of a finger will typically be worth less than the loss of an entire arm.
  • The victim’s age: Younger victims may be able to recover more compensation for the loss of a limb than older victims, as they will likely face a longer life without the limb.
  • The victim’s occupation: If the victim’s occupation requires the use of the limb, such as a construction worker who lost an arm, he or she may be able to recover more compensation for the loss of the limb.
  • The victim’s prognosis and ongoing needs: If the victim requires ongoing medical care, such as physical therapy or the need to have the prosthetic limb replaced, he or she may be able to recover more compensation.

How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?

Every state has a statute of limitations, or time limit, on how long you have to file a personal injury lawsuit after an accident. In New Mexico, the statute of limitations for amputation lawsuits is typically three years from the date of the accident or injury that caused the amputation. Because the statute of limitations can be complex, and certain factors can extend or shorten the time limit, it is important that you consult with Simon Perdue Law as soon as possible.

Amputations Caused by Workplace Accidents

In New Mexico, if you were injured in a workplace accident, you have two primary avenues for seeking compensation: 

  • Filing for workers' compensation benefits
  • Pursuing a third-party personal injury lawsuit

Workers' compensation insurance benefits, mandated for most employers, offers coverage for medical costs, lost wages, disability benefits, and vocational rehabilitation. It doesn't require proving fault, yet it may not fully address all your losses, such as pain and suffering. It also prohibits you from suing your employer.

On the other hand, a personal injury lawsuit targets third parties whose negligence contributed to the accident, such as a manufacturer, contractor or subcontractor, or property owner. This route enables you to seek broader damages like emotional distress and punitive damages, but it demands establishing the third party's liability. 

Determining your options necessitates a careful examination of the circumstances surrounding your injury. Seek guidance from a seasoned attorney at Simon Perdue Law who can help assess your case, outline your rights, and determine the most appropriate approach for securing compensation for your amputation and its aftermath.
