When we think about injuries sustained in an accident at work especially an injury that lead to a Sheffield accident at work claim we often think of a long list of physical injuries such as: broken bones, spinal injuries, head injuries, damaged ear drums, eye injuries, cuts and bruises, torn ligaments, pulled muscles, sprains and many many more. However one of the most common injuries that we do not think about is emotional trauma. Emotional trauma can be the aftermath of a physical injury or brought on through the stress of a job.
Can you claim compensation for emotional trauma?
People suffering from emotional trauma are just as much within their rights to make a personal injury claim such as a Sheffield accident at work claim for compensation as someone with a broken leg.
A victim of emotional trauma may not want to go out and feel very depressed. They can be suffering from serious anxiety, loss of appetite and loss of sleep. Losing your appetite can sometimes cause a person to develop an eating disorder and a lack of sleep can make a person very depressed with unusual mood swings.
Someone suffering from emotional trauma may not even be able to spot the symptoms themselves but need to get medical treatment, so if you are feeling any of the mentioned symptoms or you know of someone who could be suffering from emotional trauma then you need to get help right away. Once you have had medical help you may feel more confident about making a Sheffield accident at work claim for the suffering you have endured.
