Amputations

Amputations

Limb Loss • Phantom Pain • Neuroma • Balance

The loss of a limb is a shocking, horrific, life-transforming experience. Many people are unaware, however, that health problems related to an amputation can continue long after the limb has actually been removed. If juries are not made aware of these residual effects, they won’t be able to take them into account when determining what a fair settlement might be. For a free initial consultation with Lallande Law PLC to discuss your injuries, fill in the contact form or call (800) 308-8800.

The Story Doesn’t End with the Removal of a Limb

The after-effects of an amputation can continue for years into the lives of amputees. Depending on how the limb was detached (for example, was it crushed, or severed with a doctor’s knife?) nerves can grow too rapidly at the point of severance and cause painful neuroma. Phantom limb syndrome causes serious pain in the non-existent limb, and it can haunt amputees for years. Also, the loss of a limb can unsettle the body’s natural balance and weight distribution, causing bone and joint pain.
