Road traffic accidents are one of the most common causes of accidents that can result in amputations. There were 27,465 amputations made in England between 2015 and 2018 related to medical problems and personal injury.

Here at Solicitors On Your Side Scotland, we agree that being involved in a road traffic accident is a remarkably traumatic experience for the individual and their family – therefore we will do everything we can so you can get the compensation you deserve.

Road traffic accidents can cause serious injuries to anyone involved, leading to loss of limbs to drivers, passengers, or pedestrians. The causes can seriously vary; however, the most common causes include:

  • A fault of the driver
  • A defect of the car
  • Hazardous road conditions
  • Dangerous weather conditions

Road traffic accidents can lead to injuries that can result in amputations. They can be instant or can happen due to an injury. We advise that amputations can be extraordinarily traumatising and life-changing experiences; therefore, we will ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

The main causes of amputations from road traffic accidents

The main causes of amputations from road traffic accidents include:

  • Trauma: Many amputations occur because of trauma, such as a motor vehicle, motorcycle, and cyclist accidents. A limb may be crushed beyond repair to a point to which it cannot be repaired.
  • Vascular disease: These include problems with the veins, arteries, and capillaries, which carry blood from the heart to various body parts. If the vascular system does not work correctly due to trauma or an accident, it can cause decreased blood flow to a limb and result in amputations.
  • Infections: If an infection becomes severe, it can lead to dead tissue, which may mean an amputation is necessary.

No matter the cause of the accident, our solicitors will do everything in their power to ensure that you get the highest possible compensation for the damages that you may have faced.
