A traumatic event such as a car accident or an accident at work could easily cause a psychological injury, as well as physical injuries. Psychological injuries could include depression/anxiety as well as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), with symptoms including low mood, irritability, anxiety and nightmares or flashbacks. If you have suffered no physical injuries then you may be able to make a claim for psychological injury compensation if you have been diagnosed with a recognised psychiatric illness such as PTSD, for example.
With more awareness than ever before of psychological injury, the number of claims for compensation has increased. Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers are experts at securing psychological injury compensation to cover financial losses, therapy and treatment.
Tricky to diagnose
It can often be slightly more complex to make a claim for psychological injury, as these types of injuries can take time to develop and be more difficult to diagnose than a physical injury. Whether you have suffered PTSD after an accident whilst working in a factory or have been diagnosed with depression after suffering permanent scarring from a car crash, Accident Advice Helpline can help you to get the compensation you deserve. When working out your personal injury settlement, we work with medical professionals to assess your needs and take into account the cost of any current and future treatments, therapy or medication you may require.
It might be that you have suffered physical injuries as well as a psychological injury, and our experienced team of advisors will be able to offer you advice on the best type of claim to make, on a confidential, no-obligation basis. If you have suffered psychological injuries as a result of somebody else’s negligence, you are entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation – and the settlement you receive can help to cover any financial expenses as well as pay household bills and other costs whilst you receive treatment.
