Causes & Outcomes of Amputation Injuries

Vehicle accidents including cars, motorcycles, and heavy trucks are among the leading causes of amputation injuries. Less known, but no less serious, causes include defective products and medical malpractice. The things all these scenarios have in common is they affect not only the victim’s life but that of their loved one as well.

After an amputation, it can be nearly impossible to return to the life you’re used to. Victims and families often have to deal with:

  • Heavy medical bills
  • The cost of physical therapy/rehabilitation
  • Weeks or even months of missed work
  • Decreased earning capacity
  • Changed family work schedules due to care needs
  • Finding and securing appropriate accommodations
  • Continued medical costs if a prosthetic is used

A victim may also suffer phantom pain and struggle emotionally when it comes to coping with their situation. Between tangible and intangible consequences, it can be hard to determine just how much an amputation injury victim and their family has lost. What we do know is, the at-fault party’s insurer probably isn’t offering you the settlement you need.

Understanding Amputation Injuries in Sacramento: Local Resources and Support

Living in Sacramento, we understand the unique challenges our community faces when dealing with severe injuries like amputations. The aftermath of such an injury can be overwhelming, but knowing where to turn for support can make a significant difference. Sacramento is home to several local government entities and resources that can assist during these difficult times.

The City of Sacramento and Sacramento County offer various programs that can help with medical expenses, rehabilitation services, and emotional support. Additionally, organizations like The Center at Sierra Health Foundation work tirelessly to improve health outcomes for residents, including those recovering from traumatic injuries.

One of the most pressing issues for amputation injury victims in Sacramento is the high cost of medical care and rehabilitation. With the average cost of a prosthetic limb ranging from $5,000 to $50,000, and the need for ongoing physical therapy, the financial burden can be immense.
