Losing a limb or fingers or toes from a car accident is devastating and often the most difficult of injuries to endure after a car accident. Although such injuries are not so common, they are serious when they occur. Amputations can occur after a car accident from the other vehicle rolling over onto your vehicle, head-on collisions, or t-bone accidents.
Motor vehicle accidents are the most common cause of traumatic amputations second to workplace accidents. The majority of these amputations involve upper limbs. Amputations may be required due to damages to a limb or extremities from a car accident that cut off or narrow the arteries and prevent oxygen and cause nutrient deficiency. Eventually, it can lead to the tissues dying or being severely infected beyond repair. At that point, amputation is required to prevent further damage to the affected parts. It may also be required to save a person’s life.
