    Expert injury lawyers in Longhope

    Longhope is a village in west Gloucestershire, situated just outside the Forest of Dean. The place name Longhope means ‘long, enclosed valley’ which describes the aspect of the village. The village was inhabited by the 11th century and the manor of Hope is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Residents of Longhope are just as likely to be injured in accidents as residents of anywhere else in the UK.

    The need to use expert injury lawyers in Longhope

    The trauma caused by accidents, both physically and mentally can be catastrophic, resulting in memory failings, panic attacks and general anxiety. Known as post-traumatic stress, the reactions can develop some time after the incident and probably the best person to identify the problem is your GP, who will know if you have had these symptoms before. This is a typical part of using expert injury lawyers in Longhope and as such will be included in your personal injury compensation claim.

    Sometimes, people walk away from the scene of accidents seemingly unhurt, or with a few cuts and bruises. Then, days later, the post-traumatic stress kicks in, the unexplained headaches, the panic attacks and various other symptoms, quite often with no apparent cause. Post-traumatic stress, just like physical injuries, can mean you having to lose time from work, or incurring extra out of pocket expenses that would not have had to be paid if the accident had not happened.

    The things expert injury lawyers in Longhope would consider

    So the list of items that form part of your personal injury claim is getting longer. Expert injury lawyers in Longhope would be looking at all aspects of how you are being affected by the accident and resulting injuries, things such as:

    • Pain and suffering
    • Post traumatic stress and anxiety

    • Extra care costs
    • Travel cost
    • Medical expenses
