If you are injured in a car accident, you may spend several weeks or months recovering from your injuries. Some accident victims require surgery and physical therapy because of their injuries. Even if an accident victim does not need surgery, injuries from a car accident can take weeks to heal.

As you recuperate from injuries sustained in a car accident, it is important to take steps to protect your health and your legal rights. Sadly, many people make mistakes while they are at home recuperating that can negatively impact their ability to recover full compensation for their damages and losses from the person who caused the car accident.

Below are four important tips to remember as you recover from car accident injuries.

  • Rest and Follow Doctor’s Orders

It can be tempting to try to do more than the doctor recommends as you recover at home. To help you recover from your injuries and avoid making your injuries worse, your doctor may place restrictions on your physical activity. It is especially important that you follow your doctor’s orders, rest, and take it easy in the days and weeks following a car accident.

  • Don’t Miss Doctor Appointments

Your doctor needs to see you to review your progress as you recover. Don’t skip doctor’s appointments or fail to follow your doctor’s treatment plan. In addition to jeopardizing your health, you could negatively impact your accident claim. An insurance company will attempt to use records that reflect missed appointments or failing to follow a treatment plan against you in your claim.

  • Ask for and Accept Help from Others

It can be difficult to admit that you are unable to perform certain tasks around the house, especially when your family counts on you to take care of them. However, you need to rest. If you try to do too much, you could cause your injuries to become worse, and it could take you longer to heal from your injuries. Therefore, ask for help and accept help from family members and friends as you are recovering from a car accident. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may need to consider hiring a professional to help you at home until you recover.

  • Avoid Stress but Protect Your Legal Right to Compensation

After a car accident, protecting your legal right to recover full compensation for damages is important. However, dealing with insurance adjusters and the details of an accident can be stressful. You do not need additional stress as you are recuperating from injuries sustained in a car accident.

Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast.

Maye Ly Testimonial

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
