If you or anyone you care about suffered any amputation, please read this:Amputations
Amputations are one of the worst and most serious injuries one can suffer in a catastrophic injury accident. Amputation in an accident is defined as “Traumatic amputation is the loss of a body part -- usually a finger, toe, arm, or leg -- that occurs as the result of an accident or injury.” See Medline Plus. Amputations result from car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents and bicycle accidents, and also dog bite and product liability cases; and in addition to involving finger, toes, arms and legs, they sometimes also involve the loss of a hand or foot.
There are two (2) types of amputations:
- Complete amputation – Some accidents cause a complete amputation where the entire body part is totally severed from the body. The severed body part, such as a finger or foot, sometimes can be reattached. In such cases it is very important to take proper care of the severed body part and the remaining body stump.
- Partial amputation – Some accidents result in a partial amputation where some “soft-tissue connection” still remains. The partially severed body part may be able to be reattached depending on how severe the injury is and how the body part and body are cared for post partial amputation.
Some complications may result from amputations which include shock from excessive bleeding and infection.
It is very important to receive immediate and proper first aid then medical care. If you have an amputation injury or any serious injury, you should call 911 or get to the closest trauma center right away.
