The human spirit is often a formidable force that allows people to achieve amazing feats. Injuries suffered in an accident can lead to significant pain and discomfort, yet many victims continue fighting to live a normal life. There are also emotional, mental and financial losses associated with accident injuries that may result in everyday struggles.
Victims of accident injuries may feel reluctant to discuss or disclose pain levels, even if the conversation is with a medical professional. However, hiding the impacts of injuries can lead to further complications in life. If you are unable to perform in a job or maintain relationships due to downplaying painful symptoms, your situation may worsen in several ways.
Work & Accident Injuries
The injuries you have suffered may affect how well you are able to perform in an employment capacity. Some jobs involve strenuous activities that are most suited to able-bodied individuals. You should not have to struggle physically or mentally in order to make a living. When accident injuries are making your job difficult or impossible, you may want to speak to your employer.
Employers can make workplace accommodations and adjustments for disabled people. This may involve cutting your hours, providing specialist equipment or helping you transition to a more suitable role within the business. Many people who suffered serious injuries can continue to work with the right support.
Paying Medical Bills
You may be reluctant to seek medical support because of the cost of treatment. If your injuries resulted from an accident caused by another individual or entity, pursuing compensation is an option. It is possible to cover some or all of your medical bills from the money awarded in a personal injury lawsuit.
A personal injury lawyer from Ligori & Ligori can provide a free initial consultation to examine the merits of your case. With the right representation, injured parties are able to seek compensation to cover medical costs, loss of earnings and other damages. Any potential award will depend on the specifics of your accident and how liability is determined.
Physical injuries are not the only potential impact from a serious accident. Most people suffer some level of emotional or psychological trauma. As part of recovery, it is important to consider your general well-being. How you are feeling mentally deserves as much attention and understanding as your physical health.
Some of the common emotional and psychological issues you may face include PTSD, anxiety, depression and mood swings. These conditions may be a direct result of an injury such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), or simply due to the harrowing experience of being involved in an accident. No matter the reason, what you are going through is valid and you deserve support.
