Common Causes of Improper Amputation

Below, you will find a list of some of the most common causes and consequences of wrongful amputation. Do note that there are a number of reasons that can lead to amputation, such as a workplace accident or a surgery gone wrong. Our priority at the Dixon Injury Firm is to help victims recover while we tackle the legal side of things.

  • Misdiagnosis: One of the most common reasons behind a wrongful amputation is a failure to diagnose. A disease may have been overlooked, it could’ve taken too long to diagnose, or the diagnoses was simply wrong. This could involve an overlooked condition such as diabetes, a blood disease, an infection, or misreading an x-ray.
  • Poor Treatment: A condition (such as those listed above) may have been diagnosed, but there is still the issue of improper treatment. If a physician fails to follow up on a condition that could lead to (or come from) a wrongful amputation, such as not treating a bacterial infection properly, you would have a valid reason to contact a St. Louis wrongful amputation attorney.
  • Hospital Error: There are a lot of people involved in patient care. A nurse, the doctor, or even an admittance employee could mix up a chart or schedule the wrong test. A victim would have a strong case for a medical malpractice lawsuit if one of these “harmless” errors led to a wrongful amputation.

Opening an improper amputation claim is an arduous process for victims since they are likely suffering pain and financial pressure. By hiring a St. Louis injury lawyer, you will have legal counsel throughout the entire process who knows how to talk to big insurance companies, hospitals, and judges. At the Dixon Injury Firm, we offer free consultations and offer what is known as a contingency payment plan, which means you don’t pay for legal services unless we win the case. This allows victims and their families a financial advantage they otherwise might not have.
