A psychological injury can occur if you have been exposed to a traumatic event, such as a road accident, accident at work or a military incident. Psychological illnesses include post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or depression and symptoms can range from low mood and irritability to flashbacks and nightmares. They can also include feelings of grief, guilt, anger, and extreme anxiety.

Can I Make a Claim for Psychological Injuries?

Where no physical injury has been suffered the psychological injury must be more than the normal upset and emotion expected from such an event, it must be a recognisable and diagnosed psychological illness (such as PTSD).

As awareness of PTSD and other types of psychological injury increase, more people are successfully claiming for very real and potentially devastating psychiatric conditions. We are experts in securing compensation for clients who have suffered psychological injuries as a result of events or accidents that were not their fault, to pay for therapies, medicines and financial losses as well as compensating them for the psychological injury that they have sustained.

Treatment of Psychological Injuries

Psychological injuries differ from physical injuries in the fact that they may not be immediately apparent or diagnosable. Symptoms such as anxiety, depression and mood swings take time to develop, diagnose and treat. The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends cognitive behavioural therapy as one of the treatments for PTSD.

Some professions are more likely to be exposed to the risk of psychological injury than others. Members of the armed forces and emergency services will frequently come face to face with shocking scenes.

At Spencers Solicitors we have a highly experienced personal injury team who are able to offer the highest level of legal expertise in PTSD claims and claims for other psychological injuries.

We'll work with medical professionals to establish immediate and ongoing needs to create a comprehensive claim that covers the cost of all current and future care for therapies, medicines, and financial losses.
