Improving Injury Recovery Time

By: Admin

Injury Recovery

Recovery; It’s more than just a word. Injury recovery is a steadfast goal for anyone injured while on the job. Those that have to fight to regain their ability to work can face a long and difficult road ahead of them. These circumstances are far from hopeless, however.

Once ensuring that you are receiving the health benefits that were promised to you by your employer, there are some key actions that you can take to keep your spirits up and ensure that you are back to work as very soon as possible.

  • Never delay your doctor’s visit. It is vital that you are accurately diagnosed and treated by a trained doctor and/or specialist as soon as possible. Self diagnosing or simply ignoring an injury can lead to life-threatening complications further down the road. Having documentation of your doctor’s visit is also absolutely necessary when pursuing workers compensation cases.
  • Stop the stress. Relaxing during this troubling time can yield very real benefits in your recovery. Stress has been shown to lead to increased pain sensations and slower recovery times. Take the time to take a breather while on the road to injury recovery.
  • Positivity is powerful. Though your initial outlook on an injury can be understandably negative, it is important to remember that your outlook on this setback could be a major factor in your recovery time. Research leads us to believe that there may be direct correlations with positivity during injury recovery and the quickness with which injured workers are able to get back to work.

The old adage of “mind over matter” often rings true in cases of injury recovery. If you have secured the benefits you may be owed by your employer, consider taking these tips to heart as you work on the goal of getting back to work.

Al is a very professional and helpful attorney. I have never dealt with another disability attorney however, after hearing the nightmares of some of my friends who have filed and been denied, I rate him #1 as an attorney and new friend. Al was aware of my needs and was always there for us during the filing process. We were impressed with Al’s memory when it came to our case as well as the government requirements and the filing process. When it was time to go before the judge, he was very professional and knowledgeable of my case.

I was looking for an Orlando Workers’ Comp attorney to represent me in a workers compensation case and Al Hilado was recommended by a family member. Mr. Hilado is very professional and knowledgeable in this area of law. Mr. Hilado explained everything to me and would not end a meeting until he felt I understood what was happening or had happened. I was very happy with the way he handled my case. He explained everything to me and did not try to push me in any direction as far as when I had to make decisions. Whenever I had a question, Al was a phone call away. He returned my calls and emails very quickly. His staff is extremely professional and friendly. I highly recommend Al Hilado to anyone who is injured at work and needs workers’ comp assistance.
