Back to School While Recovering from a Car Accident
Everyone is posting their happy Back to School photos of their children, but for those who have been in a car accident, he or she may be pretending to be happy. Sending kids back to school can be a challenge while recovering from an injury. Many cannot be as involved as they would like to be.
Back to School Steps
The number one concern is how to get kids to school. Many cannot drive again after an injury. Therefore, parents need to figure out how to get their kids to school. If a school bus isn’t an option, then other parents may be able to carpool the child. Then, while the kids are at school, this opens up the opportunity to join a support group to help with the emotions of recovery. A car accident doesn’t just bring physical complications but emotional ones. It is important to be aware of the warning signs of mental struggles. These include sleeping poorly, change in appetite or moods as well as withdrawing from likable activities.
Talk to Your Attorney
After a car accident, it is important to seek the counsel of an attorney. Then, make sure to keep in touch with him or her about the available options. These options can lead to important steps to get compensation for injuries, mental suffering, and other losses if the accident happened due to negligence or inattention. Inattention is one of the most common causes of car accidents.
Florida leads the country in distracted drivers. This is because it is not yet illegal to text and drive in the state. Officers cannot pull over a driver unless he or she is doing something illegal. Therefore, texting and driving are one of the biggest causes of crashes in Florida. Other forms of distracted driving are talking on the phone, eating, talking to passengers, fiddling with the radio or navigation system, and anything else drawing attention off the road.
It can be shocking after an accident to learn how expensive, time-consuming and frustrating the process can be. For many, pain does not present itself at the scene of the accident, however, the debilitating pain begins a day or two later. This can be difficult for many Americans who do not have health insurance or disability insurance. Therefore, it can be difficult to receive medical attention or income while out of work.
