The loss of one or more limbs can be devastating and life-changing. The trauma of amputation is only worsened if it comes as a result of an accident that was not your fault. Amputation can affect any limb or part of a limb including the fingers and toes. Sufferers may experience ongoing issues such as phantom limb pain and in some cases develop psychological conditions. An amputated limb might occur due to a road traffic accident, working on a building site or similar high-risk workplace or because of the negligence of a medical professional.
