Pennsylvania Amputation Injury Lawyers

Serving Victims of Catastrophic Accidents in Carlisle, Hanover, Harrisburg, Lancaster & York

Amputations can often occur after a serious vehicle accident, a severe burn, or another catastrophic injury. About 2 million Americans are living with amputations, and 185,000 of them occur every year. This means that 300 to 500 amputations are performed every day. Amputations of the leg—whether it is above or below the knee—are the most common amputation surgeries. Amputation surgeries are common because there is poor circulation due to a damaged artery or inadequate blood flow. Without the proper blood flow, the cells cannot get the oxygen it needs from the bloodstream—this affects the tissues because it begins to die and can become infected.

The loss of a limb affects a person’s mental, physical, and emotional well-being. We can help you secure your future and assist with your recovery. Contact our lawyers at (888) 498-3023!

Side Effects of an Amputation

There can be various side effects after the loss of a limb. These can lead to additional financial and psychological costs.

The effects of amputation include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Body image issues
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Fatigue or exhaustion
  • Infection
  • Loss of mobility and dexterity
  • Muscle contractures
  • Stump and phantom limb pain

The Costs of a Lost Limb

Studys shows that 30% of people with limb loss experience depression or anxiety. Losing a limb can be a traumatic experience—it is an even more distressing experience when it was caused by a catastrophic accident. The loss of a limb can make it difficult for victims to make a living because limb prosthetics can cost tens of thousands of dollars—not even including the hours of physical therapy and the loss of wages. Costs for hospital and professional fees are an average of about $30,000. This cost is calculated without prosthetics costs—when combining both the hospital and prosthetics costs, it was estimated to be an average of $403,000 in a patients’ lifetime expenses. This is only the costs for treatments, not counseling or emotional pain.

Amputation Linked to Invokana Use

A study conducted by the FDA showed that Type 2 diabetes patients who were prescribed Invokana were twice as likely to require amputation. This forced a black box warning label on the drug. Invokana and its generic form, Canagliflozin, control the glucose levels in type 2 diabetes patients. Learn more about this in our HHR blogs.
