work accident may seem simple enough. Even if workers compensation has stepped in to
help, you may not realize all that the accident could do to you. There
may be a long
economic recovery for your accident, and you have yet to realize the full impact.
Loss of Wages
There is the possibility of losing wages when you have an accident at work
because you need to have recovery time before you are able to resume your
normal job responsibilities. If the accident was severe enough, you may
not able to go back to work at the same level, which could impact future
wages as well.
You may experience an array of financial losses. Medical bills may come
rolling in, and you may also have some hidden medical expenses as well,
such as co-pays at the doctor, filling prescriptions, and even spending
money on physical therapy that is required for you to get better.
Loss of Enjoyment
Your work accident may leave you with the inability to enjoy life the way
you used to enjoy it. You may be dealing with chronic stress, pain, and
various other issues. There may be psychological effects that you have
yet to even think about because of the severity of the accident.
All of these things need to be taken into consideration when you look at
the extent of an accident and how you are going to move on with your life.
