Knowing what to do after such a serious accident can be overwhelming. That's why we want to meet with you as soon as possible. At Tracey Fox King & Walters, our dedicated Dallas auto accident attorneys can help you and your family every step of the way through your legal process.
Types of injuries
Loss of limb injuries are divided into two main categories. Injuries that result in the loss of a limb in an accident are known as "traumatic amputations." Injuries that require a medical operation to remove an arm, leg or another body part are known as "surgical amputations."
Where the amputation occurred on a person's body also affects the classification of the amputation. These include:
- Removal of entire arm (Shoulder Disarticulation)
- Above elbow (Transhumeral)
- Below forearm (Transradial)
- Hand below wrist (Metacarpal amputation)
- Hand above wrist (Wrist disarticulation)
- Fingers (Digit amputation)
- Amputation of entire leg and hip joint (Hip disarticulation)
- Removal of leg above knee (Transfermoral amputation)
- Leg including knee (Knee disarticulation)
- Leg below knee (Transtibial amputation)
- Foot including ankle (Ankle disarticulation)
- Foot below ankle (Foot amputation)
- Removal of toes (Digit amputation)
