How you develop mental health issues


How you develop mental health issues that you can claim compensation for is something that follows on from either being involved in an accident that was not your fault, or innocently witnessing an accident or incident that has a traumatic effect on you.

Mental health injuries can surface immediately after being involved in, or witnessing an accident, or may not begin to manifest themselves for several weeks, months, and in rare cases, even years later. The underlying principle when it comes to claiming compensation, is that the cause of the mental injury must be attributable to someone or something else.


How you develop mental health issues you can claim compensation for

Knowing how you develop mental health issues is one thing, but knowing how best to go about claiming compensation for them is something else. Firstly, you will need proof that the mental health issues are real, and this will entail confirmation from your GP, and perhaps also from a qualified psychiatrist.

The next thing you are going to need is a good firm of injury claim solicitors; one that is au fait with this kind of injury, and who has the necessary experience and expertise to deal with such a claim. One of the best injury claim solicitors in this bracket is us here at Accident Advice Helpline.


What makes Accident Advice Helpline the right choice?

We’ve already mentioned having the necessary experience and expertise, but in addition, you need someone that works on a no win no fee basis. Given the complexities with how you develop mental health issues, it is possible that if your case does not have the necessary proofs, your claim could be rejected. If this happens and your solicitors have run up considerable costs, you could be left with a large bill to pay.

That cannot happen with Accident Advice Helpline. Every type of claim we help people to make, whether it involves a physical injury, or a mental health injury, is covered by our no win no fee guarantee. No matter what costs are involved, you will not be presented with a bill for our legal fees if your claim fails.

For more information about this, or perhaps for help with taking our 30-second test™ to see if your claim could be valid, and if so, how much it could be worth, you can call our customer support team via our national helpline service. Call 0800 689 5659 if you’re calling from a UK-based landline, if you’re calling from a UK-based mobile.
