Psychological Injuries After a Catastrophic Accident

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 you deserve.
