How can you tell if you are well enough to go back to work, and if you are entitled to accident at work compensation in Cwmbran?
If you have been off work for some time due to a serious injury or illness which made it impossible for you to work, you need to think carefully before you return to work. Whatever your financial situation or however bored you may be of sitting at home, if you return to work too soon you risk making it more difficult for you to recover fully, and in all cases you have to be sure that your health comes first. You should also make your decision based on whether or not your job had anything to do with the accident or illness in the first place.
- You feel more alert. Being ill or injured takes a lot out of you, and you may find it difficult to get up in the morning, let alone stay awake all day, which would make it impossible for you to go to work. You should start to feel more alert and restless during the day when it is time for you to get back to work.
- You are more active. A really good sign that you are starting to feel better and are able to get back to work is when you start moving around more during the day and, not only this, but are able to make it out of the house and not feel ill or exhausted. You can’t return to work before you are able to get there without feeling awful.
- Ask your doctor. Your doctor should be able to let you know whether or not you are well enough to return to work, simply by asking you a few questions. You shouldn’t even contemplate going back to work before your doctor says it is OK, or this could actually be very dangerous for your recovery.
