Amputation Injury Lawyer in Dallas, TX

Were You Injured Through Someone Else’s Actions?

Losing a body part, no matter the cause, will dramatically change the way a victim interacts with the world. On top of the disfigurement, victims will also need to be fitted with and learn how to use a prosthetic limb, and participate in rehabilitation and physical therapy. All of these things can cost a considerable amount of money, but without them, an amputee could face potentially insurmountable challenges while attempting to regain their mobility and independence.

Call us at (214) 307-6307 today to discuss your case over the phone.

Injuries and diseases that result in amputation are devastating and life-changing events, and when it’s the result of someone else’s actions or inaction, you deserve the chance to fight for compensation. Our team of Dallas amputation attorneys at Aldous \ Walker LLP have spent decades representing injured victims, and will continue to represent people in need for as long as our services can be of help. Contact us today to learn more about what we can do for you.

How Are Amputations Caused?

There are multiple forms of medical malpractice, traumas, and illnesses that can lead to an amputation, but some of the more common causes include:

  • Cancer: Amputation may be required to treat certain forms of cancer if other forms of treatment are not successful.
  • Cellulitis: When bacteria like staphylococcus aureus, streptococcus pneumoniae, and hemolytic streptococcus enters an area without skin or an open wound, it can cause an infection that may appear similar to other types of skin conditions but is in fact far more dangerous. Doctors need to take extra care with their patients, especially those with diabetes, a compromised immune system, and other factors that can lead to a higher risk of contracting this infection, in order to prevent serious complications that could lead to a necessary amputation.
  • Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD): As fatty deposits build up and clog arteries, blood flow to these areas becomes restricted. PAD affects patients whose legs don’t receive enough blood, which can lead to critical limb ischemia (CLI), which in turn can lead to open sores, wounds on the legs not healing properly, gangrene, and muscular atrophy. If treated early enough, blood flow to the area can be restored, but if this condition is allowed to progress, it could result in a necessary amputation to prevent the spread of these conditions.
  • Trauma: Amputation may be necessary if a limb is severely cut off, torn, burned, crushed, or otherwise injured in order to prevent the spread of infection or tissue death to surrounding body parts. These types of injuries most often occur in car, workplace, and industrial accidents.
  • Pressure Sores: Also referred to as ulcers in some situation, these sores can form after prolonged pressure that cuts off blood flow is applied to an area on someone’s body. If left untreated, pressure sores can lead to serious complications like blood poisoning and amputation.
  • Diabetes: When diabetic’s blood sugar rises to dangerous levels, their nerves and blood vessels could suffer severe damage, also known as peripheral neuropathy. As ulcers form on the affected area, they run the risk of becoming infected, which may require amputation to treat.
