Common Causes of Amputations

As stated above, amputations usually involve malfunctioning machinery or equipment. Specifically, the most common causes of amputations include:

  • Car accident amputations
  • Amputations due to work accidents, especially in construction work
  • Faulty products, this is most common for children’s products causing finger amputations
  • Fallen objects, such as air conditioning units or soda machines

With any of these accidents, it is important to seek immediate medical attention. Not only can it save your life, but it also increases your chances of reattaching the limb.
