Construction accidents, motorcycle accidents, machinery malfunction, poor medical care and other incidents can cause the traumatic amputation of a limb or extremity, or cause such damage that surgical amputation is necessary. This is a catastrophic injury. It will forever alter a victim’s life and may lead to considerable medical costs, loss of earnings, the need to work in a new field, and the requirement of prosthetics or assistive devices.
