Getting Your Life Back After a Car Accident Amputation Injury
Even in your most horrific nightmares, the car accident that you were actually involved in on the Stevenson Expressway, Edens Expressway, or another Illinois road was not something you could have imagined. The days and weeks following the crash were, understandably, full of pain and grief. The loss of an arm, hand or finger, or a leg, foot, or toe is physically and emotionally catastrophic. However, as you grieve, it is also important that you work toward rebuilding your life.
Three Things You Can Do to Reclaim Control of Your Life
Right after the accident, your life was full of surgeries and doctor’s appointments. Your medical needs are ongoing, but you want your life to be about more than going back and forth to the doctor’s office. It is possible for you to regain control of the quality of your life again by:
- Being aggressive with your medical care. Get the care, rehabilitation therapies, and medical devices that you need.
- Defining your goals. Decide what you want to do with the rest of your life and come up with a plan to make that happen.
- Accepting help when necessary and being independent when possible. Remember that you don’t have to do all of this alone, but that you may be more independent than you think.
It is possible for your future to be filled with happiness and joy.
It Will Take Some Effort, But it Will Be Done
