Railroad Injuries: Amputations

While railroading is safer today than when FELA was enacted in 1908, the number of severe accidents and injuries is still higher for railroad workers than for many other industries.  This is partly due to the tremendous equipment railroaders work with and around constantly in their jobs – rail cars, locomotives, cranes, and hi-rail equipment can all cause serious injuries, including amputations.

Amputation due to railroad injury is one of the most life-altering and debilitating injuries a railroader can endure.  Not only is the amputation injury itself severely painful, but the aftermath of chronic pain is also debilitating and often significantly affects a railroader’s ability to continue working and earning a living.  Amputees often require help to do everyday activities while dealing with a multitude of doctor visits, physical therapy, and learning the use of prosthetics.  Amputations alter a railroader’s appearance, leading to depression, embarrassment, and not wanting to be with others.
