Lawyers Representing Victims of Newport Beach Amputation Injury Accidents
Amputation is the partial or complete removal of a limb, such as a leg, arm, hand, finger, foot, or toe. The loss of a limb in an accident can result in a significant amount of blood loss, physiological effects, immobilization, and in some cases, death.
Injuries that result in the loss of a limb or that necessitate amputation can occur in unexpected, severe accidents, such as:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Bus accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Boating accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bike accidents
- Dog bites
- Workplace accidents
- Construction accidents
If your amputation was due to a work accident, you could be entitled to monetary benefits from your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. Even if you were injured in a work accident, you may be entitled to compensation from a third party in addition to any benefits you receive from your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance.
Amputations are irreversible, and many people who lose limbs require prosthetics or reconstructive surgeries. Our Newport Beach amputation lawyers understand the enormous impact of these injuries and are fully prepared to hold the negligent party liable for your damages.
Amputation Due to Nursing Home Negligence in Newport Beach, California
When nursing home staff fail to perform thorough skin screenings for open wounds, bacteria can get into open wounds and destroy tissue. This infection can result in necrotic tissue, or dead tissue, that can develop into gangrene, often necessitating amputation of the infected limb.
Nursing home neglect can also result in the development of pressure sores, also known as “pressure ulcers” or “bedsores.” These injuries develop when blood supply is cut off from an area of the body for an extended period, causing the skin to die and progress into painful sores. If left untreated, pressure sores can spread deeper into the body or become infected and require amputation.
Residents of Newport Beach nursing homes who have limited or complete loss of mobility have the highest risks for bedsores. To prevent these painful injuries, nursing home staff must regularly reposition residents bound to beds or wheelchairs at least once every ninety minutes to two hours.
The Nursing Home Abuse Center has reported that an estimated 65% of amputations are preventable. Patients with diabetes or poor circulation, also known as peripheral vascular disease (PVD), are at the highest risk for amputation. When nursing home residents do not receive the care they need, they can develop complications that lead to an amputation.
Nothing can reverse a life-changing amputation injury, but a personal injury attorney can work to secure monetary compensation to alleviate some of your injury-related financial stress. The damages that can be recovered in a Newport Beach amputation claim can provide you with vital financial resources to help your recovery, rehabilitation, and reintegration into daily life.
