  • Psychological Injuries Following An Accident Suffered By Personal Injury Victims

    June 7, 2018

    Brampton Personal Injury Lawyers often deal with cases where people have suffered a variety of injuries following a serious accident. Canadian laws and courts recognize that both physical and psychological injuries can occur. Personal injury victims may experience extreme stress, adjustment disorder and undergo mood/personality changes with or without the presence of physical injuries. People who are involved in catastrophic accidents are at a very high risk of developing different psychological symptoms.  

    These symptoms can be evaluated and documented, and their effects on the individual’s life can be assessed by competent professionals. They include post traumatic stress disorder, depression, extended periods of stress and accompanying physical problems, sleep disturbances, extreme fear and panic attacks, anxiety etc. 

    Psychological injuries can affect the person’s ability to work and earn an income, just as physical injuries can. Typically, psychological injuries were linked to the physical ones and considered only in combination with them. However, courts are increasingly recognizing that these injuries have to be evaluated on their own. 

    An experienced car accident lawyer or slip and fall attorney can evaluate your claims. There are chances that your emotional distress and other symptoms can be linked to the accident. If the accident can be proved to have been caused by the at-fault party’s negligence or fault, you may have a valid claim. However, this requires a robust body of evidence, with medical/psychological evaluations by experts, a period of discovery and a strong rebuttal from the at-fault party.

    Your personal injury lawyer can give you the best advice about pursuing the claim or not.
