One out of every 200 Americans—1.7 million people overall—has suffered some type of limb loss, with 50,000 new amputation cases reported across the U.S. annually, according to national statistics. A large number of these amputations occur as a result of traumatic accidents. However, diseases and other medical conditions—from diabetes, cancers, infections and tumors—outnumber trauma as the primary cause. Losing a limb can cause the victim to face a long, painful, and expensive road to recovery – physical therapy and continuous medical care are common treatment plans for victims of such injuries. The loss of a limb can result in medical complications including infection, permanent nerve damage, and joint contractures. One of the most common symptoms victims experience is a phantom pain in the amputated portion of the lost limb. It usually manifests as a burning, shooting, stabbing, or throbbing sensation.
COMMON CAUSES OF AMPUTATION INJURY
- WORKPLACE INJURIES

- CONSTRUCTION SITE ACCIDENTS
