Workplace injuries: Man suffers arm amputation on the job

Job-related accidents take place on a regular basis. Even when workers are conscientious about safety and do their best to avoid accidents, they can still end up suffering debilitating workplace injuries. The injuries can prove so severe in some cases that workers may not know whether they will be able to return to work or even live as they once did.

North Carolina readers may be interested in a work-related accident that recently took place in another state. Reports indicated that a worker was using a piece of machinery to drill holes in the ground. Somehow, the man's arm got caught in the drill bit while he was carrying out his duties. The force of the machinery's movement resulted in the man's arm being completely amputated from his body.

Emergency crews were called to the scene, and the worker was conscious as he was transported to a hospital. Medical air transport was utilized due to the severity of his injury. It was reported that surgeons may attempt to reattach the man's arm, but it was unclear when or if that procedure would take place. Additional information on the worker's condition may be available at a later time.

Workplace injuries like the one that resulted from this accident can quickly change a person's life. If North Carolina workers have been severely injured on the job, they will undoubtedly have a considerable number of worries on their minds. When it comes to financial difficulties resulting from such an event, they may want to gain information on workers' compensation benefits to determine whether they may qualify for that type of financial assistance.
