Aiding Victims Dealing With Amputations
The loss of an arm, leg, hand or foot in an accident is like no other type of injury and can have devastating effects on your physical and emotional well-being. Adapting to an amputation and the possible use of a prosthetic is a gradual process that is never easy. It is important to obtain the benefits that you need after a serious accident to be able to afford the medical treatment and rehabilitation that is critical to the recovery process.
Your Rehabilitation Is Our Priority
In the short term, injured workers who have suffered an amputation need time to heal. It is common for amputation victims to experience phantom pains in their nerve endings alongside the real pain from the accident itself. While the short-term problems of amputations are very apparent, there are also many long-term difficulties adapting to such a permanent disability.
A workers’ compensation claim can help with your medical expenses, including:
- Initial medical care
- Emergency room treatment
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Future medical costs
