Many people come into our offices with physical injuries following Orlando motorcycle crashes. However, just as often as we see the physical trauma, we also see our clients having to deal with emotional distress. In some cases, they’re fearful of getting back on their bike and engaging in the activity they once were so passionate about. It might be helpful to realize that this is a normal reaction.
If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident in Florida and are feeling emotionally traumatized, here are a few steps you can take that might be useful in overcoming your anxieties.
- Talk to friends and family members. Expressing yourself to people you trust can allow you to talk through your concerns. This is a good way to avoid holding your feelings inside, which can lead to more stress over time. Using conversation to work through your trauma can help you to deal with your feelings faster and more easily than trying to do it alone.
- Return to the scene of the accident. You might replay the accident over and over again in your mind to the point where you to want to avoid the place where it happened. However, if you return to the accident site after it has been cleaned up and looks normal again, it might help you to move forward in your emotional recovery process.
- Ease into short rides. When you are ready to get back on a motorcycle, do so slowly. You might even consider starting back as a passenger. As you ride, you might begin to feel panicky, or certain situations that remind you of your accident could make you fearful, so starting out with short rides is a good idea.
