Psychological injury claims

Suffering a psychological injury may entitle you to claim criminal injury compensation if your injury was caused in an attack.

Psychological injuries can be the result of being exposed to traumatic events and incidents, such as accidents at work, whilst serving in the military or witnessing a road accident. Such scenarios can lead to depression, nightmares, flashbacks, anger, guilt and anxiety, and you may even find yourself suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Psychological injuries can be just as serious as their physical counterparts but can be hard to prove due to their invisible nature. Nonetheless, if you have been the victim of a psychological injury, we can help.

Dealing with Trauma

Psychological injuries can be long-lasting and your emotional state can be affected for the rest of your life unlike some physical injuries can heal and be treated with time. If you feel that your psychological injury occurred due to someone else’s negligence, we can help you put a case forward. Employers have a duty of care when it comes to nurturing good mental health and if health and safety guidelines haven’t been adhered to, accidents can leave permanent mental scars.

Covering Related Expenses

Costs attached to psychological injuries can mount up, but compensation can help you to cover them whilst reflecting your suffering. If you have suffered a psychological injury, you may have to take time off work and therefore miss out on earnings, you may need to pay for counselling to overcome the emotional damage suffered and you may also be faced with no option other than to change jobs.
