Different lines of work come with varying risks of occupational injury or illness. Moreover, the kinds of injury that one is likely to sustain depend largely upon the nature of the work to be performed, the typical work environment, and the tools and equipment utilized in the execution of one’s job duties. Amputations are one of the most frightening and disabling injuries that may occur as a result of a workplace accident, since they permanently alter a person’s body and can leave the victim unable to work or perform some of the most basic tasks.
If you have lost a limb, member, or digit in a workplace accident then it is likely that you will be best served by filing a workers’ compensation claim or a Social Security Disability Insurance claim.

Remaining aware of job responsibilities and circumstances that will put one at particular risk of an amputation injury can help to prevent accidents from happening. But it is almost inevitable that some such accidents will occur, even when a worker exercises all appropriate caution. Amputations may result from:
- Automobile Accidents
- Defective Tools and Machinery
- Malfunctioning Tools and Machinery
- Crush Injuries (may require amputation to heal properly)
- Negligent Operation of a Blade (by another)
The psychological strain and financial impact of an amputation injury can quickly rise to rival the physical effects. To being the process of seeking the compensation you deserve, contact the Des Moines workers’ compensation attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at 877-327-2600.
