One of the most frustrating things for those suffering through a traumatic incident such as a serious car accident that results in spinal cord injury can be waiting for the settlement of your claim.
The process can be trying for everyone involved, including family members and friends, or maybe your employer is missing you at work and feeling some strain in your absence. However, in my experience, those enduring physical pain and emotional or psychological injuries caused by spinal cord injury are usually most affected, since much of their energy is being dedicated to healing.
It’s important for those who have filed their personal injury claim to try to remain calm and helpful throughout the process. For someone who may be struggling with both a loss of income and new limitations on your physical abilities, it can be hard to remember this. Being cooperative when completing the required forms, arriving on time to all appointments, and being calm when meeting with your adjuster are ways you can help the process along smoothly.
