An effective Vancouver motorcycle accident attorney should focus not just on the details of compensation but also on the more subtle, psychological issues.
Crash victims obviously want justice—money to pay for hospital bills, lost work time, and lost future earning potential. In addition, they need reassurance. People in pain are often told to “think positively.” However, that is a tall order—even when you are healthy and whole. When you are hurt and worried about the future, advice to “think positively” sounds like a taunt. However, positive thinking does correlate with better outcomes. So, how can you look on the bright side in a way that is not artificial?
Here are some ideas:
- Collect signs of progress regarding your medical condition or other urgent problem areas in your life.
- Collect positive stories about people who have been in very similar crashes to yours—and who have experienced similar medical problems. Take heart in their success and try to visualize yourself proceeding along that same path.
- Find great people to help you. Now is the time to lean on others for medical advice, legal insight, and help with errands around the house. When great people relieve you of some of your burdens, your mental energy will be replenished.
- Try meditation, yoga, and other stress-relieving activities.
- Give yourself time. Often, the best way to get out of a foul state of mind is to let it blow over. Negative feelings, like storm clouds, ultimately pass away.
