Whether your injury is the result of a car accident, a fall outside, an accident in your garage or an animal attack, the days and months afterward can be difficult as you are working to recover and allow your body to heal. At Fox, Chandler, Homans, Hicks & McKinnon, LLP, we have helped many people in Georgia in developing a case to demonstrate why they should receive compensation for their injury.
One area of your life that may experience challenges post-injury is your mental health. Being able to maintain positivity and to have hope for the future may be marred by your current limitations and concerns about what your future will look like. You may also be burdened with the worry that your injury is negatively affecting the lives of the people you care most about.
The NCAA Sport Science Institute wrote an article that looked at how student-athletes mental health was affected by injuries they had sustained. The information they provided is equally applicable to people who are not student-athletes but have suffered an injury. Some of the emotions you may experience after your injury include frustration, disengagement and even isolation. Various mental health resources, professional intervention and the implementation of a customized recovery plan can help you to regain your confidence and your enthusiasm for life even after you have experienced an injury.
When you have the knowledge that you can overcome your injury and you will be able to adjust to the changes in your life, you may be better able to maintain a positive perspective throughout your recovery. For more information, if you have been injured, visit our web page.
