What Recovery Looks Like After A Sarasota Auto Accident

Experiencing an auto accident in the Sarasota area is more than just the day of the accident. Approximately 1,100 auto accidents occur every day in Florida, and this averages out to over 400,000 accidents occurring throughout the state each year. Of the over 400,000 accidents that occur each year in Florida, 256,000 result in injuries and of those injuries around 19,000 are considered severe.

Accident injury recovery in Sarasota is one of the most difficult parts of the auto accident experience and many don’t know what recovery really looks like until they’re experiencing it themselves.

Immediately Following The Accident

Immediately following an accident resulting in injury in Sarasota you should seek medical care whether you believe your injury to warrant that attention or not. In some instances, like in whiplash, traumatic brain injury, or back injury, the injuries may not become apparent until days later. Waiting on your injury may lead to more severe consequences going forward, and it can make it more difficult to file a claim with your insurance provider.

It’s best to choose an emergency medical provider rather than waiting to see your personal care physician. Going to an emergency room for treatment ensures you’re seen quickly, and that you can be assessed by a team of doctors with the technology and ability to diagnose and treat a myriad of injury conditions. A personal care physician can provide a physical and referral to another type of specialist, but this leads to precious time wasted.

After Your Diagnosis

After seeking out initial medical treatment your recovery process is just getting started. Your medical team will provide you with a care plan so your body can begin to heal from your injuries without further damage, and it’s crucial to follow this plan as closely as possible until recovery is complete. This treatment plan may be long, slow, and full of baby steps, requiring extended time away from work in order to make a full and complete recovery.

A recovery process may include:

• Surgery
• Physical therapy
• Limiting activity
• Medication
• Setting and attending follow-up appointments until a full recovery has been achieved

Rest is another crucial part of the recovery process. During sleep, the body works on repairing and healing itself, helping you to push your recovery successfully forward. Stress, however, makes sleep difficult, throwing a wrench into the recovery process and potentially prolonging pain, injury, and missed opportunity. While the time after an auto accident is stressful, injured parties need to find a way to lessen that stress in order to focus on healing and getting adequate rest. Having a local top-rated personal injury lawyer to handle your case can give you peace of mind to focus on your own healing process.

On The Other Side Of Recovery

Just because the physical therapy has been completed, surgery scars healed, and medication tapered off, that doesn’t always mean you’re completely free from the experience of your auto accident injuries. On the other side of recovery, you may have additional appointments with your medical team to make sure your injuries have successfully healed, and now begins the process of recouping those losses you’ve accrued from the day of the accident up until the time you were able to return to your daily activities.
