Traumatic Amputation

An amputation is referred to as traumatic when it occurs in an accident or as a result of injury sustained in an accident. Amputations can be partial (still attached by soft tissue to the body) or complete (completely severed from the body).

It is difficult to imagine the physical and emotional pain an amputee must endure. Even after the initial trauma, the amputee has a long road to recovery and many obstacles to handle and overcome, including:

  • Multiple medical procedures to treat and stabilize the affected area
  • Painful rehabilitation
  • Being fitted with and adjusting to prosthetic limb
  • Phantom pain
  • Chronic neuroma
  • Inadequate wound healing
  • Susceptibility to infection
  • Stiffness
  • Joint deformity (The joint closest to amputation site may develop contractures, muscle shortening, if full range of motion is not initiated in timely fashion following operation.)
  • Necrosis (death of skin covering)

The financial costs associated with an amputation can be astronomical. The costs may include:

  • Extensive medical bills
  • Initial and replacement prosthesis
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Counseling for emotional trauma
  • Refitting home for safety and easier accessibility
  • Loss of job / permanent disability

No amount of money can restore the limb that has been lost, but a successful claim can ease the financial burden of an amputation injury.
