Can I make a claim for emotional suffering?
Often, when an accident or injury occurs, the first priority is to deal with the physical impact. In some cases, addressing the physical injuries can save a life or prevent extreme pain so it’s vital that people receive the medical treatment they need immediately.
However, once the physical injuries have been addressed, the full effect of the injury or accident may become apparent. Whilst the shock of suffering very serious injuries is bound to affect someone emotionally, even people who have suffered relatively minor injuries can find it hard to cope with the shock of being hurt.
In some cases, people experience flashbacks, panic attacks and find it hard to sleep after being involved in a sudden accident or experiencing unexpected injuries. In addition to experiencing physical injuries, some sufferers may also go on to develop post traumatic stress disorder.
Whilst these emotional affects are to be expected in some cases, there is help available for people who are finding it hard to cope with their injuries or the incident they were involved in. In addition to seeking professional help for their emotional distress, sufferers may also find that a solicitor could help them to claim compensation for it.
