Everyone is always looking at the physical injuries when it comes to accidents whether they are car accidents or accidents in the workplace. We all worry about what bone has been broken, how immobile is the person, how serious are the injuries and so on. We do not ever really think about the emotional scars and injuries leading to emotional trauma that many people can suffer after an accident.
Emotional trauma can be life changing and long lasting. A victim may not want to go out and feel very depressed. This can lead to anxiety, loss of appetite and loss of sleep. Losing your appetite can sometimes even lead to eating disorders and a lack of sleep can add to the depression and make a person have mood swings.
If you know someone who is showing these symptoms or you yourself are displaying them you should speak to a medical professional immediately as the sooner you get help the quicker you can recover and hopefully get your life back on track. If the injury was sustained at work and was someone else’s fault not yours then you may also want to look into making a Southend-on-Sea accident at work compensation claim for what you have been through.
You may be thinking that by making a personal injury claim you will only add to your stress and anxiety but this will not be the case if you use Accident Advice Helpline. They will take all the stress away by dealing with everything for you; they will aim to work as quickly and effectively as possible.
Their service works on the ‘no win, no fee’ basis which also means it will not cost you anything to get your claim started or if your claim is lost taking away any financial worries too. To make a claim you will need to fit these criteria. The accident must not have been your fault, the injuries you incurred have to have been treated by a medical professional and the accident must have happened in the last three years.
Making a Southend-on-Sea accident at work compensation claim for emotional trauma is in our eyes just as valid as a personal injury claim for a physical injury. By making a claim you have nothing to lose and maybe a lot to gain.
