    Personal Injury Solicitors in Rother

    Rother ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors

    When they think of personal injury and the compensation which Rother ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors could obtain for them if they were injured in an accident, most people immediately consider physical pain or injury. They might forget or not acknowledge that psychological pain and trauma are just as likely to be the after effects of an accident and furthermore just as likely to have long lasting consequences.

    Claiming for Psychological Damages Through Rother ‘no win, no fee*’ Solicitors

    Although claims for psychological damage are common, they are less so than physical injuries. This is largely because people dislike talking about psychological pain and suffering, much less being diagnosed or discussing their prognosis and also because the effects of a psychological trauma are difficult to see and can be difficult to diagnose.

    However, that’s not to say that it is impossible to make a claim and as a specialist in these matters, Accident Advice Helpline offer a 30 second test which can establish the validity of a claim before it is pursued.

    Psychological trauma can often follow an accident or incident which leaves the victim in a state of shock. It’s not uncommon for victims of car accidents, burns or violent incidents to suffer psychological after-effects. However, there are some incidents where a victim’s existing condition or well being might have an effect on how likely they are to suffer after-effects.

    For example, if a person already suffered with agoraphobia and became trapped in a lift, they might suffer as a direct result. Their existing condition might be a factor in them developing trauma but this would not affect the depth of such trauma and as a result, if it can be shown that their entrapment was due to a fault in the lift caused either by the manufacturer or the company responsible for the lift maintenance, the victim would be entitled to make a claim for compensation through Rother no win no fee* solicitors.

    In order to make a successful claim, Rother ‘no win, no fee*’ practitioners would have to prove that the accident which led to the psychological damage was not the fault of the victim of the damage. This could either be because a third party was responsible for an accident either through negligence or dangerous actions or, as has been mentioned above, a company or organisation responsible for maintaining a property or piece of equipment failed to do so to a high standard.

    Levels of Damage

    Just as physical ailments tend to have varying levels of severity, as do psychological ailments. Whilst a broken leg might be painful, it is also likely to heal in time whilst spinal damage could have far lengthier recovery times.

    Psychological trauma is very similar and whilst the effects of shock might fade quickly, post traumatic stress disorder could leave a victim unable to resume their normal life. In either case, Rother ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors can seek damages for a victim of an accident or incident they were not responsible for.
