Construction Site Amputation Accidents
Since construction work involves the use of heavy machinery and saws, construction workers are particularly vulnerable to accidental amputations. After vascular disease, accidental amputations are the second leading cause of limb loss. A traumatic amputation is a horrific and extraordinarily painful injury with which to deal, and the aftermath can be almost as difficult. Having to re-learn everyday living and coping with the reality that you have a permanent disability is no easy task to say the least. A person who has suffered an accidental amputation may also find himself in dire financial straits. The costs of medical treatment, prosthetics, rehabilitation and possibly psychological care can be astronomical. When the injured was a construction worker, returning to his or her old line of work will probably be out of the question. Many times these injuries are the result of someone else's negligence or defective products.
The next step after receiving immediate medical attention:
After your injury has been treated, call a personal injury lawyer. A personal injury attorney can tell you about the possibility of compensation for your injury that could help cover your medical costs and make life easier.
