    Claim against an employer in South Somerset


    When faced with a personal injury after a workplace accident, you could find yourself with a long recovery period. Being stuck at home can lead to boredom but it’s important to look after yourself to help boost your recovery. Read our advice on what you can do to help your recovery as well as information on making a claim against an employer in South Somerset below.

    Advice for boosting your recovery following an accident

    Listen to your doctor

    Your doctor will have the best advice about caring for your injury, so it is important to listen to them. You may be prescribed medication and given information on treatment, so make sure that you do as directed in order to stand the best chance of recovery. It’s important to obtain medical proof of your injuries in order to help you make your claim.

    Rest

    If you’re used to going to work, exercising or running around after the kids, you may find it difficult to simply just rest. However, resting is important for your recovery, so learn how to relax and to enjoy your time spent at home. Use your time to read, catch up on films and TV and those other things that you may not have time for during your normal routine.

    Make arrangements with your employer

    Many people return to work too soon following an accident, but it’s important that you don’t return before you are ready. Speak to your employer about your circumstances, you may need to be signed off for a while whilst you recover, or you can make arrangements to work from home. If your employer doesn’t pay sick leave or you work for yourself, you may be able to claim compensation for a loss of earnings following your accident.
