If you have had an accident in which you have sustained very serious injuries, you can probably get sickness benefits, get sick pay from your job or even make accidental injury claims in Thanet against the person that caused your accident. Your doctor can easily sign you off from work whilst you are still badly injured, and will have no problem doing so.
However, it is natural for you to want to get back to work as soon as you can, to regain some semblance of normality to your life, and just to ease the boredom that comes with being unwell and unable to do anything. Ways to get back to work whilst you are still unwell include:
Work from home
If you are mentally well enough to cope with the demands of work, but just not physically up to it, you may want to consider working from home.
Your employer should be happy with this idea as it means that they only need to pay you to do the job, rather than paying you sick pay whilst you are off, and paying someone else to actually do the job. Even if you can’t do your whole job from home, the help should be appreciated and will keep you busy.
Get a new job
If you are physically just not able to do the job that you were doing before you could always think about new career options instead.
Maybe there is something that you have always wanted to do but not tried out before, and which would be something you could physically cope with now. This could help your accident to actually work in your favour.
