    Top concerns about returning to work following an accident

    Many people who suffer accidents are unfortunately forced to take some time off work in order to recover, and this period can be especially long if you’ve been in a serious accident. Whether the accident occurred at work, whilst you were on the road or if you had a slip, trip or fall somewhere, returning to work can raise a number of concerns. We take a look at some of the most common concerns below as well as give you advice on finding a lawyer in St Blazey to help you with your personal injury claim.

    I’m worried it’s too soon

    If you think that you haven’t fully recovered, then you should discuss your injury with your doctor who will be able to assess whether or not you’re ready. If your job involves doing anything which might aggravate your injury, ease yourself back into work and see if anything can be done to make things easier for you. A meeting with an occupational health professional may also be useful before you return.

    If I don’t go back now, I’ll end up out of pocket

    Being out of pocket as a result of a loss of earnings is a major concern after suffering an injury. Many employers offer little or no sick pay and statutory sick pay can only get you so far. If your accident was someone else’s fault, you should consider seeking compensation in order to recover these expenses.

    I’m struggling to perform as expected

    It can take time to be able to get yourself back to where you were and your employer should understand your different needs. If you feel like you are struggling, don’t be afraid to speak to your employer, who may be able to offer you alternative working hours, the possibility to work from home or even give you different duties whilst you continue your recovery. It’s easier to speak to your manager about your concerns than continue letting yourself and your work suffer.
