What to do during your time off after an accident, and how to make injury claims if necessary
If you have had an accident and sustained serious injuries, you will probably have to take a few weeks, or even months, off work to heal and recover. This time can actually be the most difficult for anyone trying to recover from an injury, as being out of their normal routine can make the emotional impact of the accident seem more obvious. You should contact us at Accident Advice Helpline and find out about making Wakefield claims for your injuries.
You might find yourself with financial troubles because of not being able to go to work, and there is the negative impact on your social life. There are still plenty of things you can do during this time, though, and you should try to do as many of them as possible to help you to heal emotionally.
- Work. Although you may not be physically fit enough to go back into work, your employer may be happy to let you work from home during your time off. This will give you a little extra financially, as well as helping you to take your mind off of your situation.
- Learn new skills. There are bound to be many things you have always wanted to learn but never really had time. During this time, a great way to take your mind off of your injuries and the recovery process is to learn these skills.
- Catch up with friends and family. Now is the best time for you to catch up with people you haven’t had the chance to speak to in a while. Talking to loved ones will also help you to cope more with the situation.
- Relax. It is most important that you use time off work to sleep and relax, so that your body has the best chance of recovery. Get lots of sleep and don’t over exert yourself.
