7 Road Conditions You Should Be Aware of That Can Cause a Florida Car Accident

We have seen and spoken to many people whose top concern is their ability to keep their job and perform the work-related duties expected of them following an auto accident. This is a common area of anxiety as accident victims prepare to take on hefty medical bills and other expenses. Being nervous about going back to work after an accident is completely normal. However, many people find that their employer is surprisingly accommodating.

If you are feeling anxious about heading back to the workplace following an Orlando car accident, here are a few tips to help get you through.

  • Be open with your coworkers about what happened.Many people will show concern and want to know what happened. Be open and honest about the events. If you don’t want to talk about it, tell them you’ll be happy to discuss it with them another time, when the trauma is not quite so fresh in your mind. Most people will understand, and if they don’t, try to brush it off as something difficult for them to understand instead of something you said wrong.
  • Don’t overexert yourself in an attempt to impress the boss.You might feel as if you have to make up for the time you were gone, so you try to go beyond what you should reasonably expect of yourself in an effort to impress your boss. This can be a bad idea for a few reasons. First and most important, you could cause further injury to yourself and end up having to miss even more work. Second, you run the risk of inadvertently signaling to your boss that your injuries were not as severe as you said they were, which can create doubt in your employer’s mind.
  • Take the breaks you need to do your job well.During the first few days back at work, you might find it very difficult to focus. Although this can be frustrating, it’s not uncommon. Take short breaks to regain your mental stamina as often as you need.
