About workplace accidents resulting in amputation
An amputation is one of the most serious injuries you can sustain.
A traumatic amputation occurs when the limb is severed during the accident. A surgical amputation occurs when the limb has to be removed afterwards during surgery. In either case, you can be left feeling emotionally traumatised by the accident. In addition, you could find yourself in a great deal of pain. Depending on the nature of your amputation, your whole life can be turned upside down. You may be unable to return to work and earn income. You may have to alter your way of life to adjust to the injury.
Employers in workplaces such as factories, on construction sites and other high-risk environments are perhaps more susceptible to these sorts of injuries. However, accidents in other workplaces can lead to an amputation in the blink of an eye. In every case, it is the responsibility of the employer to provide a safe working environment. They should issue the right safety and protective equipment to reduce the risk of accidents.
Employers should also administer ample training if people are working around machinery or tools that can potentially cause amputations. You may have suffered such an injury at your place of work and believe your employer to be at fault. If so, you could be entitled to claim Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen accident at work compensation.
