When most of us think about claims for personal injury compensation, we imagine physical injuries such as broken bones and head injuries. But in this day and age, psychological injuries can be just as common, and if you have suffered this type of injury due to somebody else’s negligence, you might find yourself wondering what you can do about it.
Psychological injuries can include things like PTSD, stress or anxiety and depression, and they are not always the most simple injuries to diagnose. But with the help of Accident Advice Helpline, you could make a claim for compensation if you have been the victim of somebody else’s negligence.
How do psychological injuries happen?
Stress is one of the main reasons people claim compensation for psychological injuries. For example if your employer has been putting you under unnecessary stress at work then you might become ill with stress and need to take time off. Stress can lead to other complications such as anxiety and depression, even physical illness, and here at Accident Advice Helpline we take this type of claim very seriously.
In fact, we’ve been helping people claim compensation for stress since 2000. If you have served in the military, you may suffer from PTSD in the future, and you may find you’re eligible to claim compensation. There’s a three-year time limit in place for all claims, so get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline today to find out if you could make a claim.
