Emotional trauma is not commonly used in personal injury claims through injury claim specialists in Tunbridge Wells but it should be. Emotional trauma from an accident can be more severe for victims of the accidents than physical injuries sustained especially in ones that have involved fatalities or for those people who have had a near death experience in an accident.
This type of emotional trauma caused in the aftermath of accidents is known as ‘Post Traumatic Stress Disorder’. There are several signs that someone could be suffering from the psychological effects of an accident. Some of these signs are:
- strange emotional behaviour
- panic attacks
- angry/mood swings
- loss of appetite
The symptoms of emotional trauma can take up to six weeks to develop after an accident. So if you know someone who has been involved in an accident then you should make sure you look out for any signs so you can get them the help they need to recover. One of the reasons why people are not making claims for their emotional trauma through injury claim specialists in Tunbridge Wells is that people don’t know that it is just as acceptable and deserving to make a personal injury claim for emotional trauma as it is to make a compensation claim for physical injuries. Psychological injuries can have a real impact on the victim’s lives.
There are ways to help someone suffering from emotional trauma or help yourself if you are suffering: you should talk about the accident, get them or yourself professional help, try to stay active and look after yourself. Then find injury claim specialists in Tunbridge Wells to see if you are eligible to make a personal injury claim.
