The long-term rehab needed after limb amputation

Big rigs are a familiar sight on Pennsylvania roadways. They are a crucial part of a thriving economy. However, with more traffic on the highways than ever before and the fact that they weigh 20 to 30 times more than your car or light duty truck, accidents involving 18-wheelers are often devastating. At Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C, our team of attorneys has experience representing clients whose injuries result in limb amputation.

John Hopkins Medicine reports that a permanent disability takes a toll on patient self-esteem. A rehabilitation program that maximizes patient capabilities is essential for promoting independence which can improve self-care and encourage rejoining your community.

Several factors affect the success of patient rehabilitation programs, including the following:

  • Overall health
  • Type and level of amputation
  • Degree of resultant disabilities and impairments
  • Family support

Activities that restore muscle strength and skills needed for daily living, pain management and the use of artificial limbs are part of a comprehensive rehab program. Social workers and therapists are often part of the rehabilitation team. They help with not only the grieving process and anger management but also in making sure you or your loved one receive vocational counseling or training to help you return to an active, productive life.

Recovering from an amputation is an arduous process that can take years. Dealing with its life-altering effects requires not only emotional support from loved ones but also a team of specialists, which is an expensive proposition. If you sustained catastrophic injuries in a truck crash that required amputation, you might have grounds for a claim. Visit our webpage for more information on this topic.
