Can I claim for emotional suffering with help from a specialist injury solicitor in Mattersey?
When someone suffers a physical injury, they can often have a very strong emotional reaction as well. Whilst we are often quick to help them obtain medical help for their physical injuries, they may find it harder to seek help for any emotional trauma they’ve suffered.
After a serious or life-threatening incident, people may suffer flashbacks, anxiety or even panic attacks. Even though their physical injuries may have healed, the emotional impact can go on for months, or even years, after the incident.
When you make a claim for compensation with a specialist injury solicitor in Mattersey, you don’t just have to claim for the physical injuries that you’ve suffered. If you’ve been emotionally affected by the incident, your specialist injury solicitor in Mattersey could argue that your compensation award should be increased to reflect this.
Help with your compensation claim
Whilst your compensation award will reflect the physical injuries you’ve suffered, it can also be increased to reflect any financial loss you’ve suffered, any on-going care you may require and the emotional impact that the incident had on you.
Unfortunately, some people can feel embarrassed about struggling emotionally after an incident and some people find it hard to talk about this aspect of their injuries. However, by letting your injury solicitor in Mattersey know, they can ensure that this is taken into account when you make your claim.
