Nearly every serious accident is coupled with trauma, be it physical or psychological in nature. Many people have a hard time returning to their daily life and work based on their injuries or anxiety, and even people who suffered minor injuries face significant challenges after an accident.
For individuals whose injuries resulted in amputation, life changes forever. Not only must they relearn the basics of life without a limb, including walking and standing, but the financial consequences can be significant. Prosthetic limbs are incredibly expensive, as is the physical therapy required for extended periods of time following an amputation. After a serious injury, focus should be on recovery, and yet insurance companies make it difficult to focus on anything but financial matters.
Has an Accident Left You With an Amputated Finger or Limb?
If you have been involved in a serious auto or work accident, you know that your life immediately following the accident is filled with immense pressure and stress. You are suddenly faced with a painful injury, as well as the financial demands that accompany emergency and long-term medical care. You may be out of work for a period of time, or even permanently. On top of all of this, you are expected to go to battle with the other party’s insurance company.
If that was not enough, factoring in an amputation can push you over the edge. You must learn to readjust to an entirely new life, a life that may no longer allow you to work the job you once did. Juggling the financial and physical consequences of a serious accident is overwhelming for anyone, but if you are acclimating to a life with a new prosthesis, the legal aftermath of an accident can hold you back from your recovery.
