Claim for a psychological injury

In the aftermath of a traumatic event, it can be common for a victim’s mental well-being to be impacted. As the stigma around mental illness is lessening, the law is also showing greater recognition for psychological injuries. If you have endured a mental condition due to a traumatic accident or another incident, you could be eligible to make a claim for a psychological injury.

The deep and long-lasting impact of a difficult event can be hard to cope with for many victims, having a significant negative effect on their everyday lives. If you have been forced to suffer in this way due to negligence, your situation can feel even more unjust.

The daily toll of a psychological injury is something we take into account when pursuing compensation claims. We have been representing victims in relation to all kinds of injuries for years, fighting to ensure that they receive the compensation they are entitled to. To find out more about your potential compensation claim, please feel free to contact us today for free, no-obligation advice.

Types of psychological injuries

Psychological injuries can be caused in many ways and can come in different forms. As specialists in injury claims, we often help victims to claim for psychological injuries in cases where they have been involved in an accident, or where they have experienced medical negligence. In such cases, victims may have suffered physical injuries, but the psychological impact of the accident may also be placing a strain on their life.

A psychological injury could manifest itself in the following ways:

  • post-traumatic stress disorder;
  • depression;
  • anxiety;
  • insomnia or sleeping problems;
  • difficulties with motivation or concentration.

These are only a few examples of possible symptoms, but they could all make you eligible to claim for a psychological injury.

Making a claim for a psychological injury

When making a claim for a psychological injury, we can first of all be looking to establish that the injury was caused by the negligence of another. Once we can establish this, we can look to evaluate how the injury has affected your life. For example, if you have been unable to work due to your mental state, or if it has had an impact on your personal relationships, this could all be factored into a claim. Your compensation amount could, therefore, likely to increase according to the severity of the impact the injury has had on your life.

We will typically engage the services of a medical expert to evaluate your psychological injury, but we may also be able to help you access psychotherapy, then recover the costs as part of your claim.
