Traumatic injuries often mean slow recoveries

Chances are, you have already heard people telling you that a time will come when you will adjust to your new circumstances. However, at the present moment, the permanent injury you suffered in the accident seems almost too much to bear.

Whether you are dealing with the amputation of a limb, a disfiguring scar, damage from a burn or other traumatic injury, you are likely facing a long, uncertain recuperation. While the physical pain may lessen each day, your recovery depends greatly on your mental and emotional well-being.

Roadblocks to recovery

One important factor in your recovery is your reaction to your wound. Studies in medical journals report that patients who feel a certain level of disgust over their injuries may have difficulty improving. Your adverse reaction to your injury may result in any of the following:

  • You are less likely to clean the wound.
  • You are less likely to change the dressings.
  • You may develop a negative body image.
  • You may become depressed.

Your support system will be very important during this time of healing. Experts say the best support for those recovering from disfiguring wounds includes not only medical care, but emotional support. This may be the distraction of a hobby or simply a kind and positive word. Your family will likely be the most important factor in your emotional recovery. However, you may find that professional counseling helps you move forward.

Your wounds go deeper than your skin

Certainly, as you learn how to care for your injuries and submit to the changes in your life, you may also wonder about the expense of your treatment. If your medical bills are already mounting and you are concerned that you may not be able to return to work, the stress may impede your recovery. Whether your injury occurred because of a car or truck accident, a construction site accident or an accident due to unsafe conditions on someone else’s property, you have the right to investigate the possibility of obtaining compensation.

Seeking recompense in a Florida civil court is about more than just reclaiming money you spent for medical care. It is also a tangible way to hold accountable those who are responsible for the personal suffering you have endured because of their negligence or recklessness. Speaking with an attorney is the first step in this process.
