When people think about being injured in an accident, they will always think about the physical injuries that can be caused, but they rarely consider the emotional and psychological impact that an accident can also have.
We do understand how upset and distressed you are feeling, and how worried you may well be at the thought of talking to anyone about your feelings. Many people feel there is a taboo attached to emotional and psychological injuries, but you must not worry. We can advise you about what help you can access so you can start to recover and claim compensation too.
What types of accidents can cause psychological injuries?
There are a number of ways in which you may suffer from psychological or emotional injuries. You may have been injured in a serious car accident and as a result of the accident you may be having nightmares about it and/or developed a fear of getting in a car or going anywhere near the scene of your accident.
You do not necessarily need to have been directly involved in the accident to have suffered from psychological injuries which attract compensation. It is often sufficient for one to witness an accident where a loved one was injured.
If you suffered from abuse as a child, either physical, mental or sexual, you may have emotional injuries as a result of this.
If you are not sure if an event, accident or situation has caused you psychological injury, please contact us as we are happy to help you be clear about your legal position and to start a claim for compensation when you are ready.
