If you have already turned to the personal injury lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline to help you with claiming compensation in County Durham, then you are probably claiming for some form of physical injury. It may be a whiplash following a car accident or a fractured wrist after a slip, trip or fall at work. However, some people fail to realise that you can also claim for emotional and psychological injuries after an accident, as these can be very debilitating and can have a serious impact on your normal family life and ability to work.

Psychological injuries can take many forms and one of these is anxiety. People often feel very anxious after they have been injured in an accident that was not their own fault. The anxiety may be related to what caused the accident or may be more general.
For example, if your accident was a road traffic accident and you were a driver then you may start to feel very anxious about getting back behind the wheel. If you were a passenger then you may feel very anxious about getting into a car when someone else is at the wheel. If you were unlucky enough to have been injured in a rail accident (these are very rare) then you may feel anxious about getting on a train. This sort of anxiety can have a great impact on your normal daily activities including work.
Other people suffer a more general anxiety and this can manifest itself in physical symptoms such as a rapid heartbeat and fast breathing. Just going outside the home can make some people very anxious indeed.
Another common reaction to a traumatic experience can be depression. This can be more than simply ‘feeling down’ and is a very debilitating illness. It can interfere with family relationships and affect all aspects of ones life.
