Life After a Catastrophic Injury
Catastrophic injuries that have been sustained in accidents can have a major impact on people’s lives, as well as the lives of their family members. Although you might want to focus on moving forward with your life, adjusting to new limitations and recovering from a catastrophic injury can be challenging. Although your life will change after a catastrophic injury, you can overcome the various obstacle you face with careful planning and help from the people in your life.
Emotional Impact of Catastrophic Injuries
There are many unpleasant feelings that one may experience during the recovery period. While this is normal, the intensity of the emotions and the level of tolerance for managing these feelings vary from person to person. It is important to seek help if you find that your emotional state is preventing you from tending to your injury or doing what doctors recommend to aid in the healing process. Depression and an altered conception of one’s body image are examples of common emotional responses in the aftermath of catastrophic injuries.
Financial Impact of Catastrophic Injuries
In addition to dealing with physical and emotional limitations, there is also the associated costs of medical services and other necessary expenses. From medical devices to medical aids to help manage day-to-day activities, many catastrophic injury survivors have to pay for home care services and make major improvements and alterations to their homes to accommodate wheelchairs, prosthetics, and more.
