Cases We Handle
Transhumeral amputation is amputation of the arm above the elbow. Transhumeral amputation typically occurs in drastic situations where the humerus, radius, and ulna become dislocated and cannot be repaired. Most often an amputation occurs because of improper care of the wound or in work accidents with heavy machinery.
A number of different situations may result in the removal of a limb, including:
- Disease – There are a variety of illnesses that may cause an upper arm infection. For example, if you or a loved one is currently or was being treated for cancer with chemoradiation, the exposure to chemicals may have caused immunodeficiency, bone infarcts, or soft-tissue irritation that may result in an amputation. Most often, doctors will attempt a limb salvage before a transhumeral amputation. Amputation should be a last resort. If you feel that a doctor amputated your limb prematurely or failed to treat the infection that caused the amputation, you may be entitled to compensation.
- Workplace Accidents – When you come to work, you expect that your boss or company will prioritize your safety. Unfortunately, not all workplaces are as diligent as they should be about the safety of their workers. One of the most common causes of a transhumeral amputation is workplace accidents, such as an explosion or equipment failure. If you feel that your work was responsible for your injury, your amputation may not be your fault and the burden should not fall to you alone. Mazin & Associates, PC can help you determine whether a workers’ compensation claim or a lawsuit are more appropriate in your case.
- Practitioner Fault – Doctors are humans and do sometimes make mistakes; unfortunately, some of their mistakes may result in the loss of a limb. A doctor may remove the wrong limb during an amputation and a patient may lose multiple extremities. This is the fault of your practitioner, and they should be held responsible.
- Car Accidents – Car accidents may cause an injury so severe that amputation is necessary. A distracted or drunk driver can cause permanent physical and emotional damage to you and your family.
Transhumeral amputations are serious and deserve to be treated as such. If you are a victim of any of the above scenarios or recently experienced a transhumeral amputation for an injury that was not your fault, you should pursue compensation.
