Here at Rob Levine and Associates we are passionate in making sure you get the proper care and compensation to assist you on your track towards recovery. Below are a few tips on what to do to help heal your pain after an accident physically, mentally, and emotionally.


Accidents can cause severe injury and even death to those involved. These injuries can be painful, and can also prevent you from working. In extreme case one can be injured with a long-term disability. Here are some tips to ensure that your injuries do not become worse than they already are:

  • Stay still after an accident

If you are in immediate danger of course get out of the vehicle and get to a safe area. However, once you are out of danger it is very important to stay still and calm as to not injure yourself anymore.

  • Wait for emergency vehicles to arrive

Unless someone is in immediate danger it is important to wait for police and ambulances to arrive. They will asses the situation and hold the correct person responsible for the accident. They will also give proper and professional care to those in need.

  • Go to a doctor as soon as possible

Sometimes pain from an accident does not show itself until days after the accident. Set up an appointment with your doctor will ensure all injuries are recorded and taken care of.

  • Rest and give your injury time to heal

Many people will try to continue to work and maintain their regular daily activities while injured, do not. Activities such as these can prevent healing and even worsen your injury.

  • Social Security Disability

If the injury prevents you from working long-term, you may be eligible for social security disability benefits.

Mentally & Emotionally

Not all injuries after an accident are visable. Accidents frequently cause mental injuries, emotional disorders, and grief. These injuries can cause serious issues that interrupt with your daily routines and leave you in pain and confused.

  • Go to a doctor as soon as possible

Again, a doctor will be able to check and identify your injuries from the accident. Make sure they check for head injuries too such as a concussion or traumatic brain injury. These types of physical injuries can change your mental and emotional state dramatically.

  • Therapy

Grief is a very common result of an accident. There is a lot going through your head: insurance, liability, injuries, bills, etc. All of these variables along with the memory of the crash can lead to PTSD, anxiety, and depression. A therapist can help you move on from this traumatic time and help you cope with your injuries and emotions.

  • Social Security Disability

If you suffered from a traumatic injury physically or mentally, you may be eligible for social security disability benefits.
