Denver Amputation Attorney
Losing an arm, a leg or an eye is a loss like no other. You know that you are still yourself, yet you cannot help feeling incomplete. Adapting to an amputation or loss of an eye is a gradual process. You are no doubt grateful to be alive after your brush with tragedy in a car accident, truck accident, construction site accident or falling accident. Yet you must cope with the aftermath of your amputation.
Janice M. Greening, Denver lawyer and former registered nurse, has handled more than 3,000 injury and disability cases. If you have suffered the amputation of your hand, foot, arm or leg in a construction accident or motor vehicle accident, contact our disability law firm for a free consultation.
Short Term and Long Term Recovery: Physical and Financial
In the short term, your arm, leg, shoulder or hip wound needs time to heal. You may experience phantom pains because of the way your nerve endings function.
Over the long term, you need to adapt to getting around or working around the fact that you have a permanent disability because you are missing a body part.
Financially, your short-term losses will initially entail such things as ambulance and emergency room, surgery and other follow-up care and close monitoring of your healing with an eye on prevention of infection. You may also miss work and need replacement of unpaid wages.
Your long-term financial losses may include durable medical equipment, prosthetics, physical therapy, occupational therapy and psychological therapy and job retraining. Some people who suffer amputations have a hard time ever making a living as they did before. Construction workers, musicians and repairmen may find it impossible to work as before at similar jobs.
At the law firm of Janice M. Greening, LLC, you can be assured that our personal injury lawyer will listen to you with a nurse's understanding and compassion. Attorney Greening is well qualified to evaluate your medical records, communicate with your doctors and therapists and encourage you to follow the prescribed recommended therapies for the best attainable rehabilitation outcomes.
