Types of Care Amputation Survivors May Need
Amputations following an accident, either in a car crash or on the job, can be traumatic and can raise many challenges. The kind of recovery process you’ll face will depend on your particular needs, but any kind of limb loss can be difficult. Individuals may need to purchase expensive prosthetics and may need extensive rehabilitation to learn how to use these devices and learn how to adjust to life after limb loss. Individuals may need assistance with mobility and performing daily tasks. Others may need help coping with changed body image and may require counseling and other support. Because limb loss can be traumatic, some amputation survivors may experience post-traumatic stress disorder and may need additional care for this.
Amputation survivors may need a range of services including assistance with adaptive technology and prosthetics, support to help them cope with the loss of a limb, help with managing pain, and assistance with adjusting to life after limb loss, including learning how to engage in an active lifestyle. Others may need training to perform new jobs, or may need work training to return to work. Research has shown that better quality rehabilitative care can result in better outcomes for amputation patients. Unfortunately, better rehabilitative care can also be costly, and families may not always be prepared to shoulder these costs.
The care team for amputation survivors can be extensive. You may need medical professionals, surgeons, grief counselors, vocational counselors, physical therapists, pain management specialists, nutritionists, social workers, and other specialists on your side. While some of this might be covered by medical insurance, sometimes families may struggle with co-payments. Others may struggle when they find themselves underinsured following an amputation. Imbriale Injury Law are personal injury lawyers in Canton, Georgia who understand the unique challenges amputation survivors and their families face. Our personal injury attorneys may be able to help you seek damages for your medical costs, rehabilitation expenses, prosthetic devices, counseling, lost wages, work retraining, and pain and suffering.
