How Can I Deal with The Stress of a Job Injury?

colorado Workers Compensation Attorney

Is your job injury stressing you out?

Do you feel anxious and overwhelmed?

Is limited mobility due to your injury causing you concern? 

High levels of stress can be damaging to your personal life, your health and your well-being. If you’re stressed out, you may need to consult your doctor to help resolve any emotional challenges you may have about your injury.

Your doctor can be a great resource for understanding and dealing with stress. He or she can give you a realistic evaluation of your injury and what it can mean in terms of time away from work and how well you are expected to recover.

Your doctor may also prescribe therapy or medication to help you relax and focus on healing instead of worrying. If you don’t want to go to a doctor to help reduce stress you could also try:

  1. Asking for help when you need it and accepting it when it’s offered.
  2. Laughing – humor can help reduce stress and anxiety.
  3. Relax with meditation and breathing techniques to reduce stress and muscle tension.
  4. Visualize your injury healing or take a moment to see yourself performing rehabilitation in your mind before you actually perform it. 
  5. Adjust your goals and expectations, because setbacks can happen. The timeline for your recovery may be different from that of someone else with the same injury.

You shouldn’t have to deal with stress while you are healing from a work injury. Contact an experienced Colorado workers’ compensation attorney about your rights.

"Kaufman and Kaufman was extremely professional in my case. They set appointments as often as I requested which was often weekly or more. They handled all the problems that came up and ended up settling my case for more than I expected. I was very happy with the result."

"I’ve known the folks at Kaufman and Kaufman for more than 30 years. Correct - I said 30 years. The Kaufman’s have *always* done the right thing, especially when it’s not easy. Trust, in 2022, is hard. Trusting the Kaufman’s, in 2022, is simple."

- Jeff W. (2022)

"Kaufman and Kaufman represented me in a workman’s comp case and I couldn’t be happier with their service. They were very professional and gave me the personal service I was relying on. I hope I never get in that kind of situation again but if I do the Kaufman’s would be the firm I’d call. I highly recommend them."

- Erik (2022)

"Couldn't have asked for a more compassionate and thorough legal representation! Matt was so patient in taking the time to explain everything. The entire staff was incredible. I felt bolstered and validated throughout. I would recommend K&K to anyone going through a dark time with a debilitating injury.. they truly do care about their clients."

- Jessica C. (2022)

"The Kaufmans are a family owned firm that I highly recommend! They have always acted with integrity and intent to help people as best they can. You can trust them and I have dealt with the Kaufmans for a number of years now."

- JB (2022)

"The Kaufman team is very professional and knowledgeable about the work comp laws . They guided me in every step of the process, and if I ever have to do this again , they would be my first call. Without them i wouldn't have been able to pay my bills, and provide for my family. Thanks again to Kaufman and Kaufman for allowing my family to survive."
