Injury lawyers in Steyning
Steyning is a small town in the Horsham District of West Sussex. Steyning has existed since Anglo-Saxon times. Legend has it that St. Cuthman built a church, at one time dedicated to him, later to St Andrew, and now jointly to St Andrew and St Cuthman, where he stopped after carrying his mother in a wheelbarrow.
Hopefully his mom was Ok after that little adventure and hopefully it didn’t tire him out too much.
The residents of Sussex, and of anywhere else, could at any time be injured in an accident that was not their fault. The physical injuries are bad enough but a serious injury can mean that you are not able to deal with day-to-day tasks, and the anxiety it causes can be disabling. If this has happened because of an accident that was not your fault, you may be able to make a personal injury claim and you may want to use the services of injury lawyers in Steyning.
Injury lawyers in Steyning are concerned about the stress
The trauma and stress caused by an accident 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 typical of part of a personal injury claim, and as such will be accounted for when your claim is being compiled.
The first road death
Cars were first produced in 1885. The first road death followed in 1896, when a car, which was travelling at what was described at the time as a tremendous speed – 4 miles per hour, hit a 44-year old mother. The car had been made by two of her cousins and she fell under the wheels as it drove past.
Sometimes people walk away from an accident seemingly unhurt, or with a few cuts and bruises. Then days later the posttraumatic 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.
