Injury lawyers in Whetstone
The term “personal injury” brings to mind images of broken bones, nasty bruises and lacerated skin, but as well as making a personal injury claim for a physical injury you’ve suffered, you may have a claim to compensation for a psychological injury you’ve sustained as a consequence of the negligent or irresponsible behaviour of an individual or organisation. Although not taken as serious as a physical injury by some, psychological damage can have a huge effect on a person’s life, holding them back both socially and professionally.
Conditions such as anxiety and depression can take years to get over. In some cases, people who suffer psychological trauma may require counselling and medication for the rest of their lives. If you’ve suffered a psychological injury as the result of the negligent or irresponsible behaviour of a third party, there’s a chance you might stand just as good a chance of using an injury lawyer in Whetstone to sue for compensation as somebody who had suffered a physical injury as the result of an accident that was not their fault.
