Chattanooga Amputation Lawyers
Surviving a traumatic accident only to be left with the drastically life-changing disability of a limb amputation is, for many people, a fate worse than death. When an amputee envisions the future, life looks quite a bit different than the one he or she had always planned.
Limb amputations can happen because of auto accidents or work accidents, or during the life-saving surgical procedures that follow those accidents. Injury accident victims who suffer an amputation face mental devastation, in addition to new physical limitations. As a consequence, not only does the amputee see an uncertain future, his or her loved ones and dependents face uncertainty, too.
Emotional therapy and family support can help an amputee through the mental transition of accident recovery, but it will take time and hard work to make the physical transition. For those who physically qualify, prosthetic limbs can provide great assistance. But prosthetic limbs are very expensive, may require numerous fittings and years to learn how to use them. Prostheses aren’t suitable for all amputees, though. Some TN amputation accident victims may require live-in care takers for daily assistance, plus construction and other modifications be made at home to make room for a wheel chair or other device.
Even if an amputee develops the ability to live independently again, life will never be like it was before the accident.
