Unfortunately, the honest labor of blue-collar workers can be beset by the negligence of employers, contractors, business owners or fellow employees that lead to workplace injury accidents. Serious workplace accidents cost Americans dearly, especially workers that toil in the construction and industrial positions. Many such workplace accidents involve debilitating injuries that require amputation of a hand, arm, finger, foot, leg or toe. According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, as many as 10,000 workers in America are annually victims of an amputation injury, which represents 6.5 per cent of all amputations in America in a given year. Other workplace injuries include TBI, or traumatic brain injury, as well as spinal cord injury, which could result in paralysis.
