Taking legal action after an injury
When you suffer an unexpected or sudden injury, it can often harm you emotionally and psychologically, as well as physically. In fact, this emotional harm can continue even when your physical injuries have started to heal. If you have been involved in a life-threatening accident you may begin to experience emotional problems in the days and weeks after the incident. You may have trouble sleeping or they may experience flashbacks and anxiety.
Fortunately, there is plenty of help for you. Often, counselling is available or you can try a wide range of complementary therapies, such as hypnosis, rapid-eye movement therapy and even acupuncture. Whilst GPs can also provide medications to help with the symptoms of anxiety, many people find that these complementary therapies are also effective.
If the incident which caused your injuries wasn’t your fault, you may not realise that you could be eligible to make a no-win, no-fee compensation claim. Of course, if you’re still struggling to deal with the aftermath of the incident, you may not feel up to making a claim just yet.
If so, there’s no need to rush. In most cases, people are able to make claims for up to three years after the incident has occurred so you could still have time to make your claim and obtain compensation.
