Amputations Related to a Workplace Injury
Amputation refers to the removal of a limb or another body part, which can occur because of physical trauma stemming from a workplace accident. The least common type of work injury, amputation is the one of the most severe and impactful on a victim's life. These often preventable injuries are debilitating and result in more than just the loss of a limb. Amputations also lead to the loss of income and productivity. Employees who suffer amputations can often obtain reimbursement for lost wages and medical expenses through workers' compensation insurance.
Common Causes of Amputations
Amputation injuries most commonly occur during industrial,
construction, and factory accidents. Removal of a finger, hand, arm, foot or leg can occur through the improper use of saws, heavy machinery, and farm equipment. Whether the amputation could have been avoided or was the result of an accident, you may be entitled to monetary assistance through workers' compensation.
