Losing a limb can happen for a variety of reasons, some of which are medical, and others which are related to a workplace injury. Without a limb, hand, or foot, even the most basic of everyday activities can instantly become difficult or impossible.

How Do Amputation Work Injuries Happen?
Amputation work injuries can occur in any industry, although those working in certain industries will have a naturally higher risk. According to OSHA 2015 statistics, around 60% of all work-related amputations occurred within the manufacturing industry, followed by the construction industry, although that 10% of the total is significantly lower.
Whilst successfully representing workers who have lost an arm, leg, hand, or foot following a workplace accident, our Palm Springs attorneys have become familiar with the fact that amputations are frequently caused by inadequately guarded, or unguarded:
- Mechanical power presses
- Power press brakes
- Powered and non-powered conveyors
- Printing presses
- Roll forming and roll bending machines
- Food slicers
- Meat grinders
- Drill presses
- Milling machinery
- Other types of machinery and equipment
Not all amputations are caused by machinery, and we have also successfully handled cases arising from accidents involving forklifts, trash compactors, and various tools. Whatever the circumstances of your workplace accident, you can be certain that our legal experts can obtain a successful verdict on your behalf, where the accident occurred through the negligence of another.
