Victims of mental injuries caused by someone else are just as entitled to make personal injury claims in Monmouthshire as someone who has sustained physical injuries in an accident that was not their fault. Mental injuries can be a temporary situation, or they can have a permanent effect and change victims lives forever.
Mental injuries that cause personal injury claims in Monmouthshire
Mental injuries can happen in many ways but usually occur because of a traumatic experience or undue stress. The sorts of things that may cause a mental problem are:
- Being in an accident
- Witnessing an accident
- Drastic unwanted changes in your job
- Self image after a scarring injury
- Undue pressure from employers to work harder and longer
- Bullying, most often in the workplace but not always
- Being the victim of a violent crime
- Witnessing a violent crime, particularly if the victim is someone close
- Following a period of abuse, mental or physical
Whether you call it stress, anxiety, trauma, depression or anything else, mental injuries can cause untold misery for the victim, and if someone else has caused it, the victim should consider making personal injury claims in Monmouthshire.
Making a claim for a mental injury
Mental injuries need a medical report confirming your condition, and as with many injuries, you my need to have an independent medical assessment. This will probably be the last thing you want to go through if you are suffering mentally, but a medical assessment can really help your claim.
If you do not feel up to dealing with the claim yourself, get someone close to contact us on your behalf. It helps if you are handy to help with the answers to questions, but you should not lose out just because you are not up to making the claim yourself.
Once we have the details of your mental injury, a specialist lawyer would be assigned to your case. We have lawyers who specialise in different types of claims, and mental injury specialists are among them.
