Psychological Injury Claims

If you have been psychologically affected by the negligent actions of somebody else during an accident, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.

At YouClaim, we understand that the emotional impact of a stressful incident can be just as damaging as any physical injury. Often, someone who has suffered in an accident will experience some kind of emotional trauma, whether in addition to, or instead of, physical pain. If you find yourself in this situation, you can use compensation to help with your recovery.

About psychological injuries

For individuals suffering from serious injuries and scarring, emotional distress can be as consuming or life-changing as physical pain. Emotional distress can lead to severe stress, anxiety and depression, as well as triggering further psychological disorders. Often, it impacts significantly on that individual’s daily life, affecting their ability to work, their family life and their social life. Without the right treatment and support, psychological conditions can worsen, which is why securing the right treatment is often such a vital part of dealing with any psychological condition.

Common causes of psychological trauma

Psychological trauma can be triggered by a wide range of issues, and can happen at any time in someone’s life. However, some common causes for emotional distress include:

  • Witnessing or being involved in a traumatic event (e.g. a fire, an assault or witnessing a horrific accident)
  • Living with scarring/amputation after another accident
  • Post traumatic stress disorder
  • Traumatic birth/surgery that has caused long-term problems

If you think your emotional pain is the result of another person’s negligence, we can help you make a claim for compensation. Our team is experienced in dealing with such sensitive cases and can provide professional advice and guidance throughout the process.
