Amputations

The Amputee Coalition of America estimates that there are 900,000 traumatic amputation survivors in the United States with an estimated 83,250 new traumatic amputees every year. SMBB is well-equipped to handle both the complexities of an amputation victim’s legal case and the related consultations with leading medical experts to understand the client’s treatment and future medical, therapy and rehabilitation needs.”

Back to All Practice Areas

As one of Pennsylvania’s leading catastrophic injury firms, SMBB has extensive experience handling claims that involve the tragic loss of limbs. We represent both injured people who sustained traumatic amputation as part of the accident or incident that caused their injuries, and those whose limb was amputated as a result of the necessary medical treatment of their injuries. Our representation of amputation victims extends across several our practice areas, including:

  • Industrial Accidents: Many clients have suffered loss of limbs because of industrial machinery and workplace accidents. Given the disparity in size, weight and power, a worker’s limbs are no match for the machines in a factory, plant or construction site. Even electrical injuries can lead to medical amputation when the limb suffers an injury that cannot be repaired.
  • Product Defects: Both industrial and consumer products can lead to traumatic or necessary medical amputation. From hand tools to household appliances, SMBB has represented many clients who suffered amputations from products that are used every day.
  • Guardrail Injuries: SMBB has even represented clients who have lost limbs as a result of injuries caused by the very products intended to protect drivers – highway guardrails. SMBB is experienced in litigating these complex cases.

Many of our clients who sustain catastrophic injuries also suffer from amputation of limbs as a result. Whether caused by industrial equipment, consumer products or even highway guardrails, amputation victims are forever and irreversibly changed. Even though we cannot restore our clients physically, we work tirelessly to hold responsible parties accountable.
