    How to claim emotional trauma compensation


    If you’ve escaped an accident without any physical injuries, there is still a chance that you could be left suffering from a psychological injury or emotional trauma. Depression, anxiety, PTSD – these are all forms of emotional trauma which can seriously impact your life and take time to recover from. But you could claim emotional trauma compensation if you’ve been involved in an accident which has affected you psychologically.

    A car crash, accident at work or even an accident in a public place could all leave you psychologically scarred, but Accident Advice Helpline’s professional personal injury lawyers have 15 years’ experience helping people to claim emotional trauma compensation – and as awareness of psychological illness grows, so too do the number of successful claims for psychological injuries.

    How did your accident happen?

    It might be that you have been left feeling emotionally traumatised after an accident on a motorway when a lorry ploughed into your car. Or perhaps you were injured in a workplace accident where other workers were killed. The emotional trauma from accidents like these could lead to serious psychological conditions and your quality of life can be affected. Conditions such as anxiety and depression usually require therapy and medication, and you may find yourself unable to work or enjoy your life as you used to. That’s why you should consider making an emotional trauma compensation claim on a 100% no win, no fee* basis with Accident Advice Helpline.

    If somebody else is to blame for your accident – for example if your employer hired an unqualified contractor to erect scaffolding at your workplace which collapsed and killed several of your colleagues – you could make a personal injury claim. Our team of lawyers will liaise with medical professionals to assess the support needed for your condition, so your settlement will take into account financial losses (such as loss of earnings) as well as the cost of any treatment or therapy you may need now and in the future.

    A brighter future

    Diagnosing, treating and recovering from emotional trauma can take time, and the last thing you want when you are trying to get better is to have financial worries hanging over your head. Whether you yourself have been injured or a family member has suffered psychological injuries after an accident, you could make a personal injury claim by calling Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 today. It’s free to call and get confidential, no-obligation advice from our expert advisors.
