How Are Amputations Caused?

Amputations can be caused by a variety of on-the-job accidents and incidents. In many cases, they involve the loss of fingers, hands, arms, toes, feet, or legs. Individuals who suffer amputation injuries will have to learn how to live with their disabilities and adjust to life without the use of their limbs. In some cases, they may be unable to return to work and may require assistance with everyday tasks.

Amputations are often caused by the following types of work accidents:

  • Crush accidents: When a worker’s limb is crushed between a piece of machinery and a hard surface, such as a wall, this can result in a traumatic amputation.
  • Equipment entanglement: When a worker’s clothing or body part becomes caught in a piece of machinery or equipment, it can cause the limb to be severed.
  • Slip and fall accidents: When an individual slips and falls, he or she may try to brace for the fall by putting out an arm or a hand. This can cause the limb to become crushed or severed.
  • Motor vehicle accidents: Those who drive or work as passengers in large commercial vehicles, such as semis or construction trucks, are at risk of suffering catastrophic injuries, including amputations, in motor vehicle accidents.
  • Explosions and fires: Those who work in certain industries, such as the oil and gas industry, are at risk of suffering burn injuries and amputations in explosions and fires.

Amputations are always serious and life-altering injuries. In some cases, they are even fatal. Those who survive amputation injuries will likely require extensive medical care, including multiple surgeries, as well as rehabilitative services. They may also require a prosthesis, which can be extremely expensive. Furthermore, they will need to learn how to live with their disabilities and may need to modify their homes and vehicles to accommodate their needs.

  • Why Do I Need a Missouri Workers’ Compensation Attorney?
    A workers’ compensation claim can take several months, even years, to resolve, especially if you continue to suffer from the effects of your work-related injury. Your employer and its insurance company will be represented by highly skilled attorneys who know how to exploit an injured employee. You need to level the playing field by hiring a Missouri workers’ compensation lawyer who will fight on your behalf.
  • What Happens If My Employer Denies Me Workers’ Compensation Benefits?
    In many cases, your employer or their insurance company will promptly pay any workers’ compensation benefits. But if they deny benefits–or stop paying them before you receive what you believe you are entitled to under the law–then you have the right to file a claim with the Missouri Division of Workers’ Compensation. An administrative law judge appointed by the Division will review your claim and either conduct mediation between you and your employer, or alternatively hold a formal hearing to determine your right to compensation.
  • What Kinds of Injuries Are Covered?

    Under Missouri law, workers’ compensation only covers injuries that arise “out of and in the course of employment.” This includes accidents that occur during your work shift. It also includes “occupational diseases” contracted at work, provided workplace exposure was the “prevailing” cause.

    Workers’ compensation is not necessarily limited to injuries suffered at your normal workplace. If your job requires you to travel–i.e., make deliveries or conduct on-site work with clients–you may be compensated for injuries sustained in the course of such travel. However, Missouri workers’ compensation law specifically excludes injuries sustained while commuting from home to work and back, even if you use a company-owned car.
