In recent news, a construction worker lost his arm after an industrial accident occurred in Hillsboro Beach, FL. While working with an industrial auger, the man’s arm became trapped and resulted in the severing of his limb. Thankfully, the Hillsboro Beach Police Department were able to apply a tourniquet and reattachment is now a possibility.
When a tragic and traumatic event like this occurs, damages, far more detrimental than the actual injury, start to arise in the near future. The man, who has yet to be identified, was only 44 years old. This man has a significantly long lifespan ahead of him, all of which will change due to the accident. At 44 years old, you can assume that his career in construction was likely close to 15-20 years in the making. After an accident like this, returning to such a career is unlikely and potentially impossible. For 44 years this man has lived and became accustomed to life with both arms, and, even if re-attached, will now need to learn his everyday tasks, something as simple as getting dressed, all over again. The use of the injured arm will be limited, potentially causing lifelong pain and difficulties. After such a tragedy, it is likely that frequent medical attention will become common in several years to follow.
