Psychological Injuries

Psychological Injury

Besides the physical pain of injuries caused by a motor vehicle accident, some people are affected mentally. This can have a huge effect on all areas of a person’s life.

Fortunately, psychological injuries are an issue that can be addressed legally. If the injuries are caused by another person, you can pursue a claim for compensation. 

We are a team of lawyers with over 20 years of experience in personal injury law. We have represented and litigated psychological injury cases on behalf of many clients.

A psychological injury refers to an injury that affects the mind of a person. This is different from brain injuries. Traumatic brain injuries are caused by physical trauma. However, a psychological injury does not require any physical trauma. For example, a person who witnesses a tragic event involving a loved one may suffer from psychological injuries.

If you are involved in an accident that is traumatic, this may end up affecting your psychological functions. There are people who suffer burn injuries and live in fear of losing their life, which also causes psychological damage. If you or your loved one is facing similar challenges due to a motor vehicle accident, give us a call.

Signs of Psychological Damage

There are a number of signs that may indicate psychological injuries, which you can seek compensation for. Some of these symptoms include:

  • – Anger
  • – Mood swings
  • – Guilt
  • – Irritability
  • – Self-blame
  • – Hopelessness
  • – Sadness
  • – Poor concentration
  • – Fear
  • – Anxiety
  • – Nightmares
  •  
  • And the list goes on…

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-traumatic stress disorder is one of the most common psychological injuries. This is where a person feels helpless or is afraid after witnessing a traumatic event. This affects daily activities and the normal functions of the body. Victims of PTSD tend to suffer symptoms such as flashbacks, insomnia, emotional numbing, depression, and suicidal thoughts.

Some insurance companies might be dismissive of psychological injuries and may try to compensate you less than you deserve for the damages. As such, you should always ensure that you have a professional and experienced lawyer to handle such matters.

A defendant may claim that this is a faked injury and not genuine. However, we have aggressive lawyers who understand the damage that psychological injuries can cause.

Our managing lawyer, Dale Szakacs, has formerly represented insurance companies in defending personal injury claims. He knows how to deal with insurance companies to get you the best settlement. Talk to us today and allow us to review your case so we can help you get the compensation you deserve.

All positive reviews I had read before about Dale from SL came out to be true. Dale's long term service dealing with injured people and transacting with insurance companies has put him in the category of the best experienced lawyers in our society. After my car accident l suffered quite a bit including financial setbacks. I couldn't do my physical challenging jobs, and that meant bills pilling up on my bed side table. Then Dale got me a good settlement which paid all my bills, plus compensation for my prior injuries. I will, when given a chance, recommend Dale to my family and relatives including my friends.
