(On behalf of Gibby Andry Law, New Orleans, LA)
There are many inspirational stories of individuals who have endured injuries involving the loss of a limb as the result of a freak accident, automobile accident, accident at work, or an accident while playing sports.
In Orlando, Florida, a local high school soccer star loses her leg in an automobile accident and runs again! The accident occurred while the young girl was participating in a fundraising carwash. One of the cars rolled into her lower extremities, crushing them, resulting in the amputation of one of her legs. However, there was no stopping her. She was fitted with a prosthetic and is training with her college soccer team.
A young Air Force cadet from Ohio loses his leg in a basic parachute training class accident. However, he keeps his dream of becoming a pilot alive, and since the accident, the gentleman has kayaked, climbed a 50-foot rope tower, earned scuba certification, and finished a 5-kilometer race in about 40 minutes.
These are amazing stories of success! The trauma of losing a limb, undergoing numerous surgeries, being fitted for and using a prosthetic, and making the necessary life adjustments are just part of the long road to physical and emotional recovery. Consider the strength and determination that is required.
Sometimes accidents are just that, accidents. Sometimes accidents are caused by the negligence of another person or entity or by their carelessness. Sometimes, the injured does not recover. Sometimes, death is the result. If you or someone you know has been injured and suffered the loss of a limb in an accident, give me a call at (888) 696-6049.
