Amputation / Loss of Limb Injury Cases
Our Shreveport Personal Injury Attorney Can Help
Losing a limb has a terrible emotional impact, beyond the challenges of the physical problems in an amputation. There are many challenges to be faced, physically, emotionally and socially. If your injury was a result of negligence on the part of another, it is not unreasonable to expect that they make up for the damage they caused. It is important that you get justice, and part of the process is seeking compensation for damages.
Getting the Support You Need
It is helpful to have the support of others who have been through an amputation. There are many amputee support groups and a great deal of helpful information and stories of how others have made it through such a trying experience.
The National Amputation Foundation offers these tips from veterans who have been through the experience:
- Keep a positive attitude and maintain the attitude that you can.
- Learning to walk again, or any challenging physical skill, builds a great deal of mental strength, as well as physical, and will help in your overall attitude toward life.
- Find others who have been through this and can give you support and advice and provide you with resources.
- Get your friends and family to encourage you and allow you to first try and accomplish tasks before rushing to help you. This builds your independence, which is what you want and what is best for you.
- Insist that you are treated as a "regular person" and remind people that you are still you.
