A personal injury attorney isn’t the hero in a workers’ compensation case. The real hero is you, the ones who have to learn how to live with their injury.
It is easy to get depressed when your injury has left you disabled. You could have lost a limb or become paralyzed. Life in a wheelchair or with a prosthetic is not something you have planned for. With bills piling up, you might not be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Ways to Move On
There are things you can do to move on after a traumatic incident. As your personal injury attorney, I suggest you start by being open about what happened. Talking about the accident can help you move past the accident. It can also help you put everything into perspective and help you focus on the things you still have. You are still alive and still have your family by your side. It might not seem like much at first, but as you get to watch your children grow up and see all their milestones, you’ll understand how wonderful life still is.
Don’t be afraid to go to counseling. Meeting with a licensed therapist can help you learn how to deal with the pain you are going through. You can learn to handle the pain. Don’t focus on the money or the bills. Let your personal injury attorney worry about your case. You should focus on living your life.
Understand the Court Is Not on Your Side
Going to court is something that most people don’t want to do. However, workers’ compensation, something every employer is supposed to have, doesn’t always cover the medical bills. This forces you and your personal injury attorney to confront the insurance companies to seek fair compensation.
The problem with these cases is that judges and juries look at you as though you are just trying to get rich. The system simply isn’t fair.
