We all know – or can guess – that being involved in an accident must be painful; there are physical injuries that can not only take a long time to heal, but leave scars too. They can also change our lives for ever.
But there is a scar that many people fail to see, simply because it is not visible. However, our lawyers know it is there because they have ‘seen’ it before; they have worked with many claimants, like you, who bear this unseen scar.
The emotional impact of an accident can be huge; it can take over your every thought, from waking moments to plaguing your dreams, turning them into unwanted nightmares.
You can become worried and anxious about being placed back into the same position or situation you were in when you had the accident – you may find it difficult for example, to be a passenger in a car on a motorway or you may decide that you cannot and will not travel on a coach or bus again.
Our lawyers also know that it can be easy to avoid these situations, hence there is no need to deal with them. But, they also know that in order for life to return to some form of pre-accident ‘normality’, the emotional impact of an accident needs dealing with.
Counselling and other kinds of therapy are some ways that people choose to deal with these deep seated emotional issues, from outright fear to anxiety. The flashbacks that they experience, in both waking and sleeping moments, are the mind’s way of coping or trying to deal with all the emotions associated with an accident.
You may not have been responsible for the accident, but yet, somehow, you spend days after the accident carry a heavy burden on guilt. Some people have an anger that bubbles below the surface, railing against the injustice and unfairness of it all.
Just as life was going great, something or somebody came along and took that away. Our lawyers understand this emotional impact of your accident and takes time, care and sensitivity in dealing with compensation claims that, as part of the case, include details of the emotional on you.
Claiming compensation might not rid you of the emotions or post-traumatic stress related to the accident but imagine the specialist advice and treatment you could get with the compensation you could be entitled to.
