When you’ve been injured in a car accident or slip and fall incident, some of the first things you’ll likely think about are “how long will I be injured for?” and “Am I going to make a full recovery?”
There are good reasons to think about your recovery, and to get the proper advice early. Most physicians and health care providers will want to start you on a rehabilitation plan as early as possible to maximize your chances of making a full recovery. While many of us have fully healed from any prior injury, don’t make the mistake of assuming your next injury will be the same as the rest, and will heal on its own. That is when you can run into issues.
Firstly, and most importantly, listening to your doctor or other healthcare provider will help you plan out a rehabilitation course that is appropriate for you. They are the experts when it comes to your health, and they’ve helped others get back to their pre-accident state of health. With perseverance, hopefully you will make a full recovery. If not, at least you have given yourself the best chance possible at a full recovery. If you don’t listen to their advice, or don’t see them early on, you might not fully recover. Secondly, the law places a duty on you as an injured party to take reasonable steps to make yourself better.
