Loss of Limbs in Car Accidents
Find Out How Our Houston Lawyers Can Help You
Auto accidents in Houston can result in the loss of an arm or leg. Sometimes, these injuries occur during the accident. Such injuries are known as a "traumatic amputation." Other times, a person's arm or leg needs to be removed later due to the severity of the injuries. That's known as a "surgical amputation."
Losing an arm, a leg or another body part in a motor vehicle accident can be a life-changing experience. And since your injury was likely due to the negligent or reckless behavior of another driver, it's important that you hold them accountable for their actions.
Our dedicated Houston accident attorneys at Tracey & Fox can make sure your rights are respected. We know how the legal system works and what it takes to succeed in such difficult cases. That's why we have such a strong track record. Case results matter here.
Types of Injuries
Loss of limb injuries are often classified based on where amputation occurred on a person's body. Amputations involving the upper half of the body (arms, hands, etc.) are known as upper limb-amputations. Amputations involving the lower half of body (legs, feet, etc.) are known as lower-limb amputations. Types of amputation injuries include:
- Shoulder Disarticulation (Amputation of entire arm)
- Transhumeral (Above-elbow amputation)
- Transradial (Forearm amputation)
- Metacarpal amputation (Removal of hand below the wrist)
- Wrist disarticulation (Amputation of hand including the wrist)
- Digit amputation (Removal of fingers)
- Hip disarticulation (Amputation of the entire leg and hip joint)
- Transfemoral amputation (Removal of leg above the knee)
- Knee disarticulation (Amputation of leg including the knee)
- Transtibial amputation (Amputation of leg below the knee)
- Ankle disarticulation (Amputation of foot including the ankle)
- Foot amputation (Removal of foot below the ankle)
- Digit amputation (Removal of toes)
