Some of the most tragic injuries occur when an accident victim suffers a serious arm or hand injury. We use our arms and hands to do almost every kind of work in our daily lives.

One of the leading causes of upper limb injuries and amputation is work-related accidents.

When injured on the job, victims expect to be covered through workers’ compensation. Unfortunately, that is not always the case, and the workers’ compensation insurance carrier may deny the entire claim.

Serious arm and hand injuries may involve shoulder injuries, such as a rotator cuff tear, as well as elbow injuries, wrist injuries or hand injuries.  In addition, each year, thousands of people are seriously injured and left without an arm, hand or finger due to a serious injury. Amputation of the arm or hand may include Digit amputation,   Metacarpal amputation, Transhumeral amputation (above elbow), and Transradial amputation (forearm).

Phantom limb is the ability to feel sensation in a limb that is no longer there. This experience can cause those suffering from the loss of an arm or hand severe medical and mental health issues.
