The difference between accidental amputation and necessary amputation
A traumatic amputation is the loss of a limb during an accident, such as a catastrophic car accident in Florida. A medically necessary amputation, on the other hand, is when a surgeon removes a limb or digit for medical reasons, such as a severe infection.
Main causes of traumatic amputation in Florida
Many types of accidents in Florida can lead to traumatic amputations, including:
- Agricultural accidents.
- Automobile accidents.
- Boating injuries.
- Caught in/between objects or equipment.
- Dangerous premises.
- Defective products.
- Firearm, fireworks and explosives accidents.
- Industrial or manufacturing accidents.
- Motorcycle accidents.
- Truck accidents.
- Vehicle rollovers.
- Work injuries.
Most of these accidents are preventable. They occur due to negligence, the legal term for carelessness. If your accident was preventable, the careless or reckless party may be financially responsible for your loss of limb.
