Five Ways to Make Your Slip and Fall Recovery Go Faster

The circumstances of your fall and the consequences of your fall are unique. However, whether you slipped on spilled pudding at a Bloomington Walmart, you tripped on a broken escalator step at a shopping center, or you fell and got hurt in any other way, there are things that you can do to make your recovery go faster.

How to Recover Quickly

Right now your goal is to get out of pain and back to living your life the way that you did before your fall accident. To that end, you may:

  • Follow your doctor’s orders. It is not enough to get emergency medical help right after your fall. You need to do what your doctor tells you to do to recover. That may include things such as rest and physical therapy.
  • Be aggressive with your medical care. If you are taking longer to recover than you anticipated, then you should not hesitate to get a second medical opinion.
  • Find a way to pass the time. Nothing makes time pass more slowly than doing nothing. You may be able to do some work, or schoolwork, from home or find another activity to keep you busy.
  • File a claim or lawsuit without wasting time. There is nothing to gain by waiting. If you got hurt because someone else failed to maintain safe conditions or notify you of a dangerous condition, then you should talk to a lawyer about how to protect your legal rights. Do not trust the insurance company to give you a fair settlement.
  • Don't waste time worrying about how the accident could’ve been avoided. Your focus now should be on your future.

How long your individual recovery will take will depend not only on what steps you take following your fall, but also on your unique injuries and health concerns.

Don’t Rush It and Jeopardize Your Future

Understandably, you want to get better as quickly as possible. However, if you don’t follow the right steps then you could be left with a lasting injury. Accordingly, we encourage you to get the medical and legal care that you need to make a successful recovery.
