Cleveland Amputation Lawyer

Did Someone Else’s Actions Cause the Loss of Your Limb?

Amputations, whether they are the result of infection, disease, injury or any other event can permanently alter the life of the injured person, as well as their friends and loved ones. In addition to lifestyle changes, the injured person will likely need to undergo expensive medical procedures and extensive physical therapy sessions after being fitted with a prosthetic limb.

If someone else’s negligent or reckless actions caused your injuries, you deserve the chance to file a lawsuit to secure compensation to cover the costs of any medical procedures, as well as any other damages you incurred. Our Cleveland amputation attorneys at The Becker Law Firm have represented countless injured victims since we first opened our doors, and have the experience and knowledge you need to fight for the compensation you deserve.

Call us today at (440) 252-4399 to give us the details of your case and begin planning your next steps with our amputation lawyers in Cleveland.

What Can Cause An Amputation?

A number of injuries, from an infected wound to a collapsed building, can result in an amputation. However, most cases are caused by:

  • Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD): This disease causes the buildup of fatty deposits in arteries of patients, seriously restricting the blood flow to and from their leg muscles. If a medical professional doesn’t treat the issue in a timely fashion, they patient could suffer from critical limb ischemia (CLI), causing their skin to potentially become pale, cold, dry, smooth and shiny. The longer PAD goes untreated, the more likely the patient is to suffer from gangrene, sores, ulcers and atrophied muscles. In addition, the sores and ulcers that develop may not heal. In the most advanced cases of PAD, amputation is the only way to save the life of the patient.
  • Trauma: Limbs that are seriously injured, burned, crushed, torn off, etc. may need to be amputated to prevent infection from spreading throughout the patient’s body. This may be necessary after a serious car accident, truck accident, or motorcycle accident.
  • Diabetes: The high levels of blood sugar many diabetics struggle with can seriously damage nerves and blood vessels, potentially increasing their need for an amputation in order to prevent the damage from spreading. Also known as peripheral neuropathy, this damage can be treated through proper care and monitoring, but failure to provide that care will only increase the risk of ulcers forming and becoming infected in the affected area.
  • Cancer: Amputation may be necessary to treat certain skin and bone cancers in order to keep the patient alive. If your doctor failed to diagnose your cancer and provide timely treatment, which resulted in the loss of your limb(s), you may have grounds to file a lawsuit.
