Loss of limbs or amputations of digits are among the most severe injuries that can occur in the workplace. They will always require people to make endless adjustments to the way they live their lives. Extensive and often lifelong medical care is a necessity. Among these injures are loss of arm, leg, finger, toe, hand or foot.
Amputations can occur at the moment of the accident. Even if a patient makes it to the hospital seemingly intact, though, often surgical amputations become necessary if the injuries are severe enough.
Help For A Range Of Amputation Injuries
The full effect of amputation injuries depends on the limb affected and the severity of the accident. In more minor cases, a worker could lose the tip of a finger in a table saw accident, and suffer bleeding and pain. In more traumatic cases, a worker could suffer a crush injury, for example, in a large-machinery accident, and lose a leg. These larger amputations not only cause significant shock and pain, including phantom limb pain after the injury has "healed"— but can also lead to major depression, as the accident victim struggles to adjust to life without the missing limb. More serious amputations often require prosthetic limbs, which can cost thousands of dollars. Some injuries can even cause "partial" amputations, meaning that the victim loses some — but not all — use of the affected limb. And victims of amputation injuries can be at risk for infection, further complicating the healing process.
