Have you suffered psychological harm?
Unfortunately, people often experience emotional harm as a result of a physical injury or illness. If you’ve been in a life-threatening incident, for example, you could experience shock immediately afterwards. In some cases, however, emotional trauma can last for a long time and have numerous symptoms.
If you experience anxiety after an accident, for example, this could be a form of emotional harm coming to the surface. Reluctance to travel by car after a collision may be normal for some time but, at some point, you should feel able to return to the road.
Obtaining medical help is important after an accident but you shouldn’t just seek medical assistance for your physical injuries. If you’ve suffered emotional harm as well, you should certainly request medical help for this too.
