Seeking Justice For Amputation Victims
Accidents causing surgical or traumatic amputation are some of the most challenging cases we deal with.
Life after an amputation
Recovery and rehabilitation after an amputation can be a long, difficult and painful process. The length of time it takes before you are able to go back to work or home will depend on the type of amputation you’ve had and any ongoing complications such as infections, phantom pain, ongoing surgical procedures. You may need to have an occupational therapist visit your home and assess the environment to ensure it’s favorable for your condition.
A prosthetic limb may need to be fitted depending on your overall condition. Adjusting to life without limbs or using a prosthetic usually takes a considerable amount of rehabilitation and, unfortunately, financial expenses.
