An amputation is extremely painful and in some cases, the procedure can be fatal. A lost or severed limb or body part is one of the most traumatic injuries a person can experience. The recovery process is not limited to just medical care.
An amputee’s life is forever changed. The victim must learn how to function on a day-to-day basis without the use of a body part.
The recovery process may include learning how to walk with one leg, write with one’s opposite hand, or eat without one’s hands. An amputee must effectively learn how to do things all over again.
Many workplace accidents can result in an employee losing an arm, leg, hand, foot, finger, toe, or other body parts due to the negligence of another.
