Vocational Rehabilitation: Life After the Accident
If you have sustained a brain injury or spinal cord injury, you know how profoundly your life has changed. While medical treatments and rehabilitation therapies cannot give you your old life back, they can help give you the skills you need to adjust to your new circumstances.
When representing people who have suffered life-altering injuries, the attorneys of Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, sometimes consider the need for vocational rehabilitation as well as medical treatment and other therapies, like physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy.
What Is Vocational Rehabilitation?
Vocational rehabilitation involves assessing your work history, your current strengths and deficits and developing career plans for the future. Vocational rehabilitation specialists help you explore potential areas of employment, learn new job skills and provide the support you may need to obtain and keep employment. For example, they may assess your need for assistive technologies, equipment, training, transportation and worksite modifications that would allow you to perform a specific job.
