    Compensation for injury causing flashbacks

    Compensation for injury causing flashbacks

    Some people who have suffered injuries of some kind find that they can recover physically, but not mentally. It is very common to suffer flashbacks of the incident in which you were involved, however that incident may have occurred. For example, you might be involved in a car accident and keep seeing the other vehicle coming towards you. In another case, you may be injured at work and keep reliving that injury, causing flashbacks to occur.

    Flashbacks are not always talked about in relation to injuries, but Accident Advice Helpline know that the mental side of things can potentially be just as bad if not worse than the physical side. In some situations, people have suffered long after their physical injuries have healed.

    A lack of sleep

    In one recent case, a young man received nasty arm injuries at work. Since then, he has required medication in order to be able to sleep at night. He received a serious injury, causing flashbacks that continue to affect him today.

    Accident Advice Helpline deal with many cases where people have suffered serious physical injuries. However, as we know only too well, mental injuries people can affect people in many ways as well. In some cases, people find it impossible to return to work, or to get behind the wheel of their car again if they were involved in a road traffic accident.

    Finding a solution

    Sometimes, the best course of action is to get professional help from a counsellor. There are people who are professionally trained to provide support in this area and regularly see people with this type of affliction. It doesn’t matter what the reason is behind the condition becoming present – what matters is that you get the right help and advice.
