East Staffordshire car accident


If you suffer the terrible trauma of sustaining an injury in an East Staffordshire car accident in a road traffic incident that was not your fault, you might be able to take personal injury action and get compensation for the physical injuries that were inflicted upon you, but it’s likely you’re already fully aware of this. What you might not know is that you could also be able to claim compensation for any psychological damage that you were to suffer.

Sustaining a nasty injury and then having to go through surgery or a long process of rehabilitation can have quite a significant psychological effect on an individual. In some cases, such a predicament could lead to anxiety, stress, depression and a range of other psychological disorders. As these conditions would have come about as a direct result of the injury sustained in an East Staffordshire car accident, any person who was to suffer them might well be able to seek damages for psychological injury on top of any compensation they were seeking for physical injuries.

Psychological injury and an East Staffordshire car accident

It may be the case that you might be able to seek compensation for the psychological injury you suffered from the party that was responsible for the incident that led to the East Staffordshire car accident you were hurt in. There might also be a chance that you could take further action if the doctors who were treating you made mistakes that meant your injury took longer to heal than it might otherwise have done.

The first step will be to get your psychological disorder diagnosed. If you’re suffering from any form or psychosocial trauma, get yourself along to your doctor immediately. If you feel you’re not getting the attention you deserve from your GP and that he isn’t taking your complaints seriously, ask to see another doctor.

It should not be too difficult for a decent doctor to establish a link between the trauma you suffered as a consequence of the East Staffordshire car accident you were involved in or any subsequent treatment you received and your psychological problems. Once this link has been established, you’ll be ready to set about seeking representation.
