    Pontarddulais compensation


    Personal Injury Solicitors in Pontarddulais

    An accident can cause huge problems in your life, not just in terms of the physical impacts, but also the mental. That’s why it’s always important to let people know about any mental issues you might be experiencing. That’s why, if you live in Pontarddulais compensation claims can be about much more than just how badly you’ve been hurt.

    Pontarddulais compensation

    When you’ve been injured in an accident one of the things that the courts will take into account when deciding whether or not to award compensation is how badly you’ve been injured. To do this they will look at the severity of the injury and how much effect it has had on your day to day life.

    If they find in your favour they will use this assessment to come up with a figure. Part of it will be based on how bad the injury is – so anything which causes long term damage will probably bring about a larger compensation payment than something which healed within a few weeks. The other part will be on the financial cost of those problems which includes any medical treatment, travel costs or lost earnings.

    When you consult with your lawyer the chances are that you’ll spend time going through every aspect of your injuries, working out how much damage has been done. More often than not most people will only focus on the physical aspects – so, if you’ve broken your leg they might look at how long it takes to heal, time off work and any physiotherapy that they’ve paid for.

    All in the mind

    But one thing almost everyone overlooks is the mental and psychological issues caused by these injuries and that’s a big problem because the mental effects can be even more damaging than the physical, partly because it’s hard to connect them to the accident and often more difficult to solve. These issues can be anything from sleeplessness to anxiety attacks and much more.

    If you’ve been consulting a therapist then you may well have to pay and that should be taken account of. And while psychological issues might not stop you from working, they can linger with you for an indeterminate amount of time.

    A national problem

    Here in the UK we’re a stoical bunch of people and we do not always know how to confront any psychological issues we have. But they can be much more damaging than the physical so it’s important that if you live in Pontarddulais compensation claims should always take account of the full range of physical and mental issues that you’ve experienced. Always tell your lawyer about all the problems you’re facing day to day – it might not be easy to quantity, but let that be our problem.
