Information About Amputation Injuries
Amputation is the loss of a body part, often a finger, hand, or arm, or a toe, foot, or leg. Amputations are among the most serious and debilitating construction site injuries. They often occur when workers operate inadequately safeguarded or improperly maintained machinery. Improper employee safety training on the use of the machinery can also put workers in danger, especially if there is certification or specialized training necessary to use it.
Did You Suffer a Construction Amputation Injury?
General unsafe working conditions, such as a failure to abide by OSHA regulations or lack of protective equipment, could also cause construction accidents resulting in the need for an amputation. Amputation injuries can result in permanent disabilities, as well as emotional and psychological damage for their victims. Many amputee victims require multiple surgeries to repair nerve damage and prosthetic limbs, leading to costly medical bills for many years after the accident.
