Texas Truck Accidents Cause Costly Medical Procedures

If you have lost a limb in a Texas accident, you know that it is one of the most devastating injuries a person can suffer. A victim is forced to suffer excruciating pain, the anxiety and long recovery of a complex surgical procedure—and after it all, he has to cope with the loss of a part of his body that he will never be able to get back.

There are many ways a person could suffer the loss of a limb, including:

  • Truck accidents. An Atlas Van Lines truck wreck can cause devastating injuries, especially if a victim’s foot or leg becomes caught in the wreckage.
  • Crushing injuries. A dropped beam on a construction site, heavy machinery rolling over a foot or even a leg becoming wedged among heavy boxes at work can cause an injury that requires amputation.
  • Defective products. It’s not uncommon for product malfunction to result in a severe burn or laceration that requires the loss of a limb to save the victim’s life.
  • Drunk drivers. Since drunk driving accidents often happen at higher impact, it is more likely that a victim will become trapped inside the vehicle.
  • Medical negligence. In some cases, a victim may need emergency amputation as a result of a doctor’s mistake or an improper drug dosage.

No matter what the cause of your injury, the fallout will be the same: a loss of mobility, an inability to return to work, and a considerable increase in medical costs—not to mention the significant physical and emotional suffering you and your family will go through.
