Workplace amputations are infrequent but constitute some of the most serious workers compensation cases. An amputation usually results in high medical bills, time off of work and emotional distress, and it may prevent the injured individual from returning to their previous role. In some cases, you may be able to apply for Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) benefits in addition to workers’ compensation if the accident permanently impairs your ability to work. If you are injured on the job and suffered an amputation, contact Thomas Evan Morgan Law and attorney Tom Morgan, today to discuss your possible claim.

COMMON CAUSES OF AMPUTATIONS
Each year, Ohio workers lose fingers, toes, hands, arms, legs, feet, ears and eyes in workplace-related accidents. These accidents are usually caused by faulty equipment or unsafe working conditions.
While an amputation can occur in any industry, individuals who work in construction and manufacturing are the most at risk. These roles typically require long hours operating hazardous equipment including saws, presses, compactors and drills.
