If you or a loved one has suffered the traumatic loss of a limb, you know it is a devastating injury that affects all areas of your life. Suddenly, everyday tasks such as bathing, dressing, eating, walking and driving have become overwhelming obstacles, which at best require extensive rehabilitation.
After a traumatic amputation, you may be unable to care for yourself or your family. You may need modifications to your home or vehicle. You may require home based care, medical treatment and rehabilitation. You may need emotional support. Certainly, you need to know what help is available to deal with the financial distress caused by your loss of a limb.
If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic amputation, you need a personal injury lawyer who understands what you are going through. More importantly, you need someone who will work to ensure you receive the care you need, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, vocational counselling, attendant care, psychological counselling and nursing.
Depending on the cause of your traumatic amputation, a variety of types of financial assistance may be available to you, including,
- Canada Pension Plan disability
