  1. Workplace Injuries
  2. Workplace dismemberment injuries are often the result of an employer who has not properly trained employees, has not provided necessary safety gear, or who has otherwise put their employee at risk. An employee can suffer this type of serious injury when working with dangerous machinery, whether setting it up, cleaning it, maintaining it, or preparing it for someone else to use.

    Some of the most common types of machines that can cause these injuries include drill presses, food slicers, roll forming machines, conveyor belts, printing presses, and heavy machinery. Though people in factories are often the victim of these accidents, other industries can result in dismemberment injuries including mining, agriculture, and restaurant employees.

  3. Car Accidents
  4. It is true that safety standards for cars and other vehicles have improved in the last few decades – and it is true that fatalities were going down for many years. However, in recent years, we have started to see the number of fatalities growing again. Dismemberment injuries have also increased. They can happen in car accidents, bike accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents – any type of moving vehicle that gets into an accident can cause a dismemberment injury.

  5. Military Accidents
  6. For our citizens in the military, dismemberment injuries are an unfortunate reality of being involved in military actions. Veterans should be able to get help through the VA for proper support, employment help, and other assistance though this is not always a reality.

  7. Accidents at Home
  8. There are many household accidents that can lead to dismemberment injuries. In some cases they are just that – accidents – that no one would have been able to see coming. In other instances, they are caused by a product issue, poorly crafted home, or another type of negligence by a company or individual.
