During the time that you are recovering from a serious accident, no one expects you to be able to get back to work or sort out your life and everything that was caused by the accident. When you have been seriously injured in a road traffic accident, or any other type of accident, then it really is more important for you to focus on getting back to normal and healing from your injuries before you consider anything else.
However, once you are recovered and feel that you are ready to get back to your day to day life, there are plenty of things that you need to consider to get back on track, as you will probably have had quite a bit of time away.
- Get back to work. This doesn’t mean just returning to work and starting your average day to day routine again. After a long time away from work there will be plenty for you to work out and learn again, and you will probably have to start again like it was your first day. Be open to learning new things and forget everything you knew in the past.
- Look to the future. Decide what you want out of the next year or so and use the time after your recovery to start making plans for the future. This will help you to recover from your accident much better than if you just tried to go back to your old life.
- Consider having counselling. Even if you had counselling when you first had your accident, it might be useful for you to continue with counselling for some time afterwards, as you start to get your life back on track. This will help you to come to terms with what happened and how life has changed following your accident.
- Try to get back on the road. If you were driving when you had your accident, a huge step towards your recovery will be getting back on the road, so this is something you should try to do without delay.
