Are you struggling to cope after a Kettering accident?
When a Kettering accident occurs, people often assume that it’s the physical injuries which are the most dangerous. If you’ve suffered a sudden or unexpected Kettering accident it is, of course, the physical injuries that pose the most immediate threat.
However, you may still be suffering even once your physical injuries have started to heal. In the immediate aftermath of a Kettering accident, people often try to access medical help as soon as possible. In many cases, they will call for an ambulance which will transport those badly hurt to hospital where they can receive further treatment.
If, for example, you suffer a broken bone, the doctors may reset the bone and place a cast on it in order to allow it to heal. If your injuries are very serious, they may perform surgery to repair the damage or they could simply provide you with medication and arrange a follow up appointment.
Whilst you may initially be relieved that your physical injuries have been treated, this relief may give way to feelings of panic or anxiety in the days and weeks after a Kettering accident. Although it’s common to suffer from shock straight after a Kettering accident, if this is on-going, you may want to seek further help.
Unfortunately, many people do suffer from issues such as anxiety, depression and insomnia after a Kettering accident so it’s important to seek help as soon as possible, rather than suffering in silence.
If you do have trouble coping after a Kettering accident, it may be possible for you to obtain compensation for your emotional suffering, as well as your physical injuries. If you’re making a claim against those responsible for the Kettering accident, your personal injury lawyers may request that your compensation award is increased to reflect the physiological burden the Kettering accident has placed on you.
