In workers’ compensation news, it turns out that accidents on the farm are more than 2.5 times more likely to result in amputation than the average work accident.  Farmers hurt on the job are at a 11% chance of having an amputation, an astounding number considering how frequent accidents are on the farm.

Also worrying from the employee’s perspective is that the prosthetic limbs provided by doctors will often be too flimsy to allow the worker to return to a farm job.

Amputation injuries do result in hard to deny workers compensation claims, and to the extent employees are unable to find employment due to a prosthetic necessitated by the injury, employees will have an additional workers’ compensation remedy.
