Worker loses an arm in industrial construction accident

Many construction workers in Georgia and elsewhere use heavy duty machines to assist with operations every day. When operating a machine such as an auger, workers must use caution to avoid being caught up in the machines, as similar incidents can have disastrous results. A 44-year-old man has lost an arm during a recent construction accident in which he got tangled up with an auger drill.

The incident reportedly took place while the man was working at an industrial construction site on a recent Thursday. According to reports, the man was operating an industrial auger when his arm became trapped in the machine and was severed up to his shoulder. Law enforcement agents were able to apply a tourniquet while awaiting the arrival of emergency responders, and he was rushed to a hospital for further treatment shortly thereafter.

Officials have advised that the man is undergoing surgery to have his arm reattached. However, no further information was provided as to his current condition, and it remains unclear how successful medical professionals believe the surgery will be. Even if the surgery goes well, the man could be facing a lengthy recovery period, and the subsequent loss of wages could leave him facing a substantial financial hurdle.

Those who suffer a major injury in a construction accident may be eligible to receive financial aid through the workers' compensation insurance system. Since this can be a complex process, a person in Georgia could benefit from retaining the services of an experienced attorney for assistance. An attorney can examine the incident, along with a client's financial needs, and assist in pursuing the full amount of compensation achievable through all applicable sources.
