If you are in an accident that causes you an injury, it may take some time for you to recover.
Whilst doctors and nurses will be able to treat your injuries, a large part of your recovery is down to you.

If you have been involved in a public transport accident in Cwmbran, you may want to consider making a claim for compensation, and you can find more information on this further down.
Tips to help you recover following an accident
Here are some suggestions for things that might help your recovery following an accident:
Listen to your doctor
You may think that you have some care instructions that can be avoided, but if your doctor has told you to take it easy, then you should listen. Follow the instructions on any medication you have been given and if you suspect that anything is wrong, make an appointment with your doctor.
Put your feet up
Forget about work, forget about your chores and take some time for yourself. It’s important that you don’t overdo it, and that you avoid doing anything that could make your injuries worse.
Get enough sleep
So many of us fail to get our recommended 8 hours of sleep, and it’s even more critical that you do when recovering from an accident. Be sure that you catch up on your sleep and if you have any problems sleeping, take a look at some tried and tested methods to help you sleep online.
Keep yourself occupied
Being stuck at home can lead to incredible boredom and it can be hard to find things to do when you’re stuck on the sofa. Watch that boxset you haven’t had time for or read one of the books your friends have all been talking about – find something to do which requires little effort but will still entertain you and the time will soon fly.
