Some accidents are so severe that the people affected suffer from life-altering injuries as a result. One such catastrophic injury is amputation injuries.
Depending, it is sometimes possible to reattach the body part, depending on if proper care is taken of the removed body part and how traumatic the injury was. As medicine is advancing, victims whose cases would have once been hopeless can now live life relatively normal.
Although amputation is sometimes the only option for an accident that resulted in catastrophic injury, it is not always the safest alternative. With the loss of a limb through amputation can come significant complications, which can in turn create even more serious physical health problems. During an amputation, a primary concern of the surgeon will be the initial blood loss that can result from a lost limb.
If the patient's blood levels are not properly monitored during an amputation, the result can be shock, which can also include symptoms such as chest pain, rapid/weak pulse, dizziness, blue lips, and even unconsciousness. Healing from an amputation must be closely monitored by doctors. If the proper medical attention is not paid to the healing process of a patient, further complications can arise.

There are many possible causes for amputation injuries. Dangerous machinery on construction sites, car accidents, bus accidents, and even a surgical error could lead to this type of trauma. In addition to the removed or partially removed body part, there will also be varying degrees of bleeding, damaged and crushed body tissue, and more. It is extremely important to attempt to stop the bleeding as victims can die from loss of blood before they can get into surgery.

Not only will you need assistance in paying for expensive surgeries and rehabilitative care, but you should be compensated for the mental anguish, pain and suffering that you and your family had to go through, and will continue to have to go through.
