How Do You Bounce Back From An Accident?

Last year I was involved in an accident. Luckily we all walked away okay, the worst damage that I know of was my friend broke her finger on the steering wheel. It was not a fun experience at all. It was bad timing and I was in the backseat unbuckled as I was trying to plug in my phone at the time. In Michigan, it is legal to sit in the backseat without a belt on if you’re over 18. I was in pain for a few weeks as I flew across the car, my knee went threw the center consol and left a huge hole. Meanwhile a huge bruse appeard on my knee along with bruses in other places.

Not everyone is as lucky as my friends and I were. Whether it’s when you’re driving, when you’re at work, or just when you’re walking down the street. Getting in any kind of accident can be one of the scariest and most traumatic experiences that you can have. It’s the kind of thing that can really knock you for six and make doing even the simplest things a whole lot more challenging. It’s not just the physical side of things, it’s also the mental impact that any kind of accident can have on you. However, that doesn’t mean that you have to end letting something like that take over your life. With that in mind, here are some things that you can do in order to bounce back from an accident.

Get the justice you need

If you want to be able to get back to normal after any kind of accident, one of the very first things that you’re going to want to do is to get all of the legal stuff out of the way. If the accident you were in was someone else’s fault then you shouldn’t be the one to pay for it. If you couldn’t work or lost out on wages because of it, then you should be properly compensated. Companies like Wetzel Law Firm can help you there. If you can’t get justice, it’s going to be a whole lot harder to give yourself closure on what happened.


Get back on the horse

One of the worst things that you can do is to try and avoid whatever you were doing when the accident happened. If it was a car accident then one of the best things that you can do is to get back behind the wheel of a car as soon as you can. If you’re not ready to start driving then even just spending time as a passenger can make a big difference. The same basic ideas apply to things like accidents at work, at home, or anywhere else. The longer you spend trying to avoid those kinds of situations, the more you’re going to end up building these kinds of things up in your head until they become so huge that you’re no longer able to even think about confronting them.

Talk to someone

It’s also a good idea to talk to someone about your feelings after an accident. Any kind of event like that is going to have potentially serious emotional repercussions and if you refuse to talk about them then you’re just going to end up not processing them properly. Whether it’s a friend, family member, or even a professional, there’s no harm in needing someone to lean on.

One of the most important things that you need to remember is that coming back from an accident is not something that is necessarily going to happen overnight. In fact, there’s a pretty good chance that this is the kind of thing that is going to take a lot of time and effort to do. It’s important that you’re patient with yourself and that you don’t give yourself a hard time if you’re not able to move past something this serious right away.

  1. Talking to someone is key Holly. I felt a bit scared after getting smacked by a huge pick up truck a few decades ago. Feeling the fear by talking about the accident helped me get back on the horse. Thanks for the helpful tips.

    • I was okay after my accident, but I wasn’t driving. My friend took a bit to get back out and drive. In fact, it was a few weeks before she could go buy that intersection again. She still has a few issues with it. I agree though, time and talking to others is a great way to get over that fear.
