While you may feel like your memories and experiences are forever etched in your brain after a car accident, the truth is that the human memory is notoriously unreliable, especially after traumatic events. Below, we discuss how journaling can help you cope with your injuries after a car accident as well as benefit your car accident claim.
In the days, weeks, and months following your car accident, your recollection of events may fade and you may have difficulty remembering minor details that could be incredibly important for your claim.
Additionally, writing down your experiences can help with your emotional recovery by providing an opportunity for you to reflect on the accident, acknowledge your fears and concerns, prioritize your feelings, and learn how to cope with any emotions you may be experiencing.
Write everything down, even if you think it’s not important. The more information you include, the better, as seemingly insignificant details can be important for your attorney to gather in order to prove the entire extent of your physical and emotional wounds.
If you aren’t sure what to include in your car accident recovery journal, it’s a good idea to ask your attorney for more information about how your notes can benefit your case and recovery. At Klein Frank, our legal team is dedicated to helping injury victims recover compensation as well as assist them in their physical and emotional recovery in any way we can.
