Fingers and other extremities are important for the daily function and work of most people. Losing any part or all of an extremity can be life-changing. Unfortunately, one California worker lost two fingers last fall in a work-related accident. Workplace injuries like his are most often covered by workers' compensation insurance.
Time is of the essence when arteries are damaged or severed during an injury. Car and industrial workers' accidents are just two types of accidents that may result in artery damage. Workers in California and across the country who suffer a life-threatening injury at work typically qualify for workers' compensation insurance. One worker in another state will likely file a claim following the loss of his arm while at work.
