Life After Amputation: Seeking Compensation
By Grace Hancock
The US withdrawal from Afghanistan reminds us of the sacrifices made by service members in the line of duty. Throughout history, many brave Americans have suffered catastrophic injuries while fighting wars abroad. And, some of these soldiers get injuries so severe that they need an amputation.
Due to a large number of veteran amputees, there has been an increased need for better prosthetics and treatment. As a result, doctors have been able to improve on existing surgical techniques and pioneer new ones. Moreover, doctors have developed prosthetic designs that are more user-friendly.
