What is a finger amputation?
Although these tiny limbs may seem insignificant, our fingers and thumbs are what allow us to grasp items and pick things up. We require them for just about any job you can think of, from a desk job to something more physical such as construction work. Any injury that is severe enough to lead to your finger being amputated can have a serious impact on your day-to-day life.
An amputation is the removal of a body part. This can be as the result of a trauma or carried out as a surgical procedure. A surgical amputation would normally only be performed if the body part could not be saved, such as in the case of a serious infection or severe damage caused by an accident. In some cases it could even be clinical negligence that leads to the point where an amputation is necessary.
Traumatic amputations refer to those instances when a severe trauma causes a body part to be torn or cut off. Accidents that can lead to this type of amputation include work accidents, often involving heavy machinery and road accidents, particularly motorcycle accidents.
If you have suffered an injury which resulted in a finger amputation, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim. Call Accident Advice Helpline to find out more.
