Don’t Face a Serious Injury Alone

Amputation is an extremely traumatic injury that results in a lifetime of additional medical costs and medical care. In addition, intensive mental and physical therapy is often needed for months after the initial surgery to help the patient deal with the loss of a limb. Once this has been completed, a patient may need to be fitted with a prosthetic limb. Depending on the severity of the amputation, patients may need to make changes in their home or in their car for accessibility purposes.

Since the healing process takes so long and involves so many stages, you don’t want to go through the process alone. Working with a personal injury attorney in Coral Gables or your community ensures you won’t have to face the process by yourself.
