- Digit amputation

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.
CAUSES OF ARM INJURIES
One of the leading causes of upper limb amputation is work injury. On average men between the ages of 18 to 34 suffer nearly half of all injuries. When injured on the job victims expect to be covered through workers compensation as well as disability benefits. Unfortunately, that is not always the case and it can take months for any compensation to come in.
In the state of Massachusetts, one is required to receive compensation equal to 34 – 43 weeks of pay for the injury and amputation.
There are multiple other injuries one can suffer that does not result in amputation, but can lead to disability. These include broken bones and nerve damage.
