Injuries that require someone to have a part of their body amputated may result due to auto/motorcycle accidents or other types of accidents. Amputation of any kind can be incredibly traumatic for an individual and his or her family.
Losing a part of your body can require a long recovery process, both emotionally and physiologically. Depending on its location, an amputation can drastically affect one’s ability to earn a living and be costly, as victims incur massive medical bills during recovery and often require formal re-training to re-enter the workforce, which can be expensive.
Some people who have parts of their bodies amputated may never be able to work again. This can lead to a lifetime of hardship for the amputee and family members, since most households rely on two incomes and the loss of one salary can make it difficult for everyone.
