The effects of traumatic amputation
In addition to the immediate psychological effects of trauma and the cost of medical care, prosthetic appliances and related physical therapy, it is common for victims to experience negative thoughts and emotions, especially in cases of sudden amputation occurring when they did not have time to mentally prepare themselves for its effects. Common negative emotions and thoughts experienced by people after a traumatic amputation include:
- Denial (refusal to accept the necessity for lifestyle changes, such as having physical therapy, to adapt to life with a missing limb)
- Suicidal feelings

If your or a loved one’s amputation occurred as the immediate result of another’s negligent act, you may be eligible to receive compensation for both your economic and non-economic losses (damages). These may include:
