Church Village is one of the most conveniently located villages for workers in South Wales, providing easy access to Pontypridd and the Rhondda, as well as Cardiff – making it an excellent choice of residence for commuters to the capital. Unfortunately, those who live and work in the area are at just as much of a risk of being injured at work in Church Village as they are in other parts of the UK, which can have numerous consequences and could lead to a long recovery period at home. We offer some tips on how to help your recovery as well as what you can do to claim compensation for your injuries.
Tips for recovering following being injured at work in Church Village
Below are some of our most helpful tips for helping you to recover following being injured at work in Church Village:
- Follow the advice of your doctor. If your doctor tells you to rest up, then do as they say. It is important that you keep off your feet, get plenty of rest and not try to take on too much before you’re ready.
- Make necessary arrangements with your employer. Your employer should be understanding of your accident, and give you the space you need to recover. Leave work in the office or if you can, work from home, but make it known that you may need some additional help or someone to cover for you whilst you’re recovering.
- Seek extra medical help. If you’re placed on a long waiting list for treatment, you may wish to seek private medical care. Additional therapy such as a chiropractor or other treatments may help you to recover quicker too.
- Undertake moderate exercise when you’re ready. If you’ve suffered a back or a neck injury, it may be beneficial for you to undertake some exercise in order to help your recovery. Short walks or some carefully planned exercises with a personal trainer could help get your fitness back up, without causing further damage.
