Disability for Loss of Limb/Amputation
The amputation or loss of a limb may have ongoing aftereffects for years after the initial trauma. Even a partial amputation can cause atrophying of the surrounding muscles and tissue. Even if a limb is not amputated, service members may sustain such damage that the limb becomes useless. Muscle tissue atrophies in this case, too.

Often, the VA Misses the Full Scope of an Injury
Aside from the purely physical issues of functionality and muscle atrophy, amputation or loss of a limb may trigger severe mental health issues. After an individual has experienced such a life-altering event, serious depression or post-traumatic stress disorder can also impede functionality. Severe PTSD can adversely affect your ability to find and maintain a job.
