At White & Stradley, PLLC, our North Carolina workers' compensation lawyers have seen, time and time again, that support groups are invaluable for workers who experienced injuries as a result of a workplace accident.
These support groups provide priceless emotional support in the days, weeks and months following your accident. It's easy to forget about the psychological effect of a severe injury, but many victims suffer from depression, anxiety, and other emotional discomforts when injured – even if that injury is relatively minor. Having a strong support structure around you can be exceptionally helpful. In some cases, it can even be life-saving.
Support groups can connect you with a range of resources you might not even be aware were available to you after your on the job injury. Having access to a group of people who went through what you're experiencing right now is quite comforting. Knowing what they did or are currently doing to recover – physically, emotionally, and financially – can provide reassurance and give you solid resources for your own recovery. Most doctors and medical professionals can provide you with information on nearby support groups, and we strongly encourage you to pursue these options. Our workers’ comp attorneys have information available as well and would be happy to discuss relevant groups with you at any time during your claim.
