The Midnight Library – A Lesson on Turning Back Time

I just finished a book called “The Midnight Library” by Matt Haig. The main character wanted to die by suicide because she felt hopeless and lost in life. She was given a chance in the midnight library to experience the different lives she could have lived if she had made different choices. Life is made up of millions of decisions. Some big. Some small.

Most accidents happen in seconds. Lives change in those seconds and in the minutes, days and years after.

What if you could turn back time?

What if you could turn back time and make a different choice that would save you from an accident? Over the last 20 years I can’t think of one person who was happy they were in an accident. I can think of countless examples of clients who wished their accident never happened and just wanted their old life back.

Mitigation of Damages

Until we can figure out time travel, we are stuck in the here and now. Accident victims are forced to “mitigate” their damages. Mitigation for accident victims means trying to get better and back to your best life with the injuries you have.  This is not always quick or easy. Rehabilitation is hard work. We know the value of making sure our clients have a great rehabilitation team around them.  Having the right support makes all the difference.

Just in case you want to read the book, I don’t want to spoil it. I will say it did make me feel even more grateful for the life I have created and the choices I have made. I am honoured to use my advocacy skills to fight for the injured and ill. The book also inspired me to think without limits. This applies to everyone. If you are not where you want to be with some aspect of your life, think about how you can change it. A positive mindset and determination are valuable on any journey, injured or not.

We wish you all health and happiness in this journey called life.

We wish we could give clients their old lives back. Fortunately, we can do the next best thing: give them back the sense of security they had before their accident and help them rebuild their lives. This involves obtaining a fair monetary settlement and secure rehabilitation for an alternative future path in a reasonable amount of time.
