Not everyone enjoys sitting in an office from 9-5. Some like to live their life with a little more risk and danger. Then there are times when there is no option but to work a job that does require a little risk and danger. Those who work in the logging business, construction workers, roof workers, fisheries workers, iron and steel workers, truck drivers, trash and recycling collectors, factory workers, and farmers are prime targets for dealing with an amputation accident. An amputation accident is simply an accident that either causes a limb to be amputated or leads to an illness which then causes an amputation.
There are two kinds of amputations, traumatic and surgical. Traumatic amputation is when an accident causes an amputation. For example as a factory worker if you were to get your leg tangled in a machine then it will more than likely lead to amputation if the machine hasn’t already completed the amputation. Traumatic amputation is traumatic on multiple levels. Not only is your body physically going through a traumatic experience, but there is mental trauma in losing a limb as well.
Surgical amputation is when a limb was salvaged but it got infected or it is damaged to the point where the surgeon believes that amputation is the best option. Surgical is still traumatic emotionally, but it is in a more controlled environment. At times you do have a choice, but if your limb is infected then the choice may be made for you: lose your life or lose a limb? Amputation does not only have to be a vital limb like an arm of a leg. You can also lose a finger, toe, hand, or foot. These are less inhibiting amputations, but still traumatic. Regardless of what you lose, you are still losing a body part due to a work injury and you will need time to heal physically and emotionally. This means you will need time off of work which can lead to loss of wages and accruing debt.
