Not all pain is visible to the naked eye, especially after a traumatic
event. If you survived a life-threatening experience, you know the mental
toll is just as debilitating as any physical injuries you may have sustained.
Sadly, you will have to go far to prove the severe psychological damage
you have endured as a result of another’s negligence or misconduct.
While everyone can attest to feeling shaken up after a slip and fall or
afraid to get behind the wheel after a fender bender, psychological injuries
are far more severe and long-lasting.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety, & More
PTSD is one of the most common forms of psychological damage and it can
take many unpredictable forms, including panic attacks, emotional detachment,
depressional suicidal thoughts, insomnia, etc. Though not always, PTSD
often develops after a physical injury. For example, a particularly horrible
car accident results in you losing a limb to amputation. This directly affects your
ability to fully enjoy life as you once did and may adversely affect your
career or future prospects.
Proving the extent of your psychological suffering can be complex as the
opposition may argue it is subjective and cannot equate to tangible, monetary
compensation. Nothing could be further from the truth. While it is harder
to substantiate these kinds of injuries, they are injuries one and the
same. A comprehensive medical examination will assess your mental state
and help your legal team build a stronger case for negotiating the settlement
