    Can you claim compensation for psychological injuries?

    When accidents occur, there are many ways in which they can cause people to sustain psychological harm. Sometimes, merely witnessing a serious accident is enough to cause people to suffer from severe emotional distress and they may go on to develop some form of post-traumatic stress disorder.

    When people are involved in accidents, or affected by them, the effects can be profound. Sometimes, the unexpected nature of the accident causes people to be fearful that something bad will happen again. As a result, they may develop generalised anxiety disorder or phobias of some kind.

    Alternatively, if someone has suffered life-altering injuries, they may go through a period of depression or stress as they adjust to their injuries and their new way of life.

    Although this is completely normal, people should always seek help for any psychological suffering they’re going through and they may also be able to take legal action.
