Amputations are devastating. And when they are the result of someone else’s wrongful conduct, amputations are especially difficult to accept. Oilfield accidents, 18-wheeler accidents, medical errors, and construction accidents are responsible for many amputations in the U.S.
Vascular system or infection-related amputations (as opposed to trauma-related amputations) comprise over 50% of all amputations in the U.S. Often, these amputations could have been avoided with proper medical care. Unfortunately, however, compromised vascular flow or infections are routinely ignored by health care providers to the point that amputation is the only option.
