Amputation is the loss of a body part, often a finger, hand, arm, toe, foot, or leg. Amputations are among the most serious and debilitating injuries. These life changing injuries can occur in various different ways. Construction accidents, motor vehicle accidents and train/bus accidents are just a few of the many examples. Improper employee safety training on the use of machinery can also put workers in danger, especially if there is certification or specialized training necessary to use it.
