    Injury solicitor in Canterbury

    When you think of a personal injury solicitor in Canterbury you probably think about a legal guru who helps people from the Canterbury area that have been hurt in accidents that were no fault of their own. You may have a mental image of a client with a neck brace, cuts and bruises and their arm in plaster.

    To some extent you are correct. The type of injury that people suffer in accidents in Canterbury can be physical but they can be psychological as well. Most people are familiar with the work that a personal injury solicitor in Canterbury would carry out for clients that have physical injuries but did you know that they may be able to help with psychological symptoms as well. Accident Advice Helpline is a law firm that handle both physical and psychological injuries from all parts of the country.

    Getting help from a personal injury solicitor in Canterbury– physical symptoms

    The physical symptoms following an accident are often obvious but may not be immediate. A broken leg, severe lacerations and a dislocated shoulder are both obvious and you are going to notice them straight away. You will probably have to be taken to the local Accident and Emergency Department for immediate medical attention. Other injuries don’t become apparent until a bit later – the most common of these is whiplash. Often, the symptoms of whiplash start the day after the accident.

    Some injuries get better quickly (perhaps in a few days or weeks) whereas others can take much longer to resolve. You may think that you are on the mend only to suffer a set-back and feel that you are starting all over again.

    Getting help from a personal injury solicitor in Canterbury– psychological symptoms

    Psychological symptoms are not visible to the naked eye. Someone who is suffering from anxiety or depression may appear perfectly normal to an untrained person. It is common to suffer from emotional injuries following:

    • Road traffic accidents
    • Accidents at work
    • Accidents in public places
    • Occupational stress which is the fault of the employer

    Accident Advice Helpline lawyers deal with all of these types of incidents on a regular basis. They can help you to claim compensation if the emotional injuries are causing a disruption to your normal daily life. They may affect your capacity to work and can even impact your future mental health.

    Some people who have consulted a personal injury solicitor in Canterbury due to psychological symptoms following a car accident started off feeling ‘shocked’ straight after the accident. Then they found that they were dwelling on the accident for several weeks or months. Some people even dreamt about the accident several times a week and had ‘flashback’ type images. As a result they had problems sleeping.
