What’s a Psychological Injury?
A psychological injury refers to an impairment of mind. Psychological injuries include a broad range of impairments and psychiatric conditions, which can result from accidents or traumatic incidents. Although these injuries may not be as visible as physical injuries, they can be just as debilitating. Those suffering from psychological injuries can face difficulties looking for income to support themselves and their families or dealing with various aspects of daily life.

Individuals suffering from these injuries are at risk of insurers taking advantage of them.

Psychological Injury – Painful and Hurting
For many years, philosophers, scientists, scholars and curious individuals have been studying and researching about human psychological injuries. As the public becomes enlightened about how mental health affects financial and physical well-being, the magnitude of psychological injuries in a legal context is growing significantly. The psychological injury lawyers at our law firm have almost 30 years of experience in personal injury litigation’s and representing different victims in psychological injury cases. A psychological injury refers to an injury to a victim’s mind or psyche. Unlike traumatic brain injuries, where there’s an injury to a particular brain tissue, psychological injuries can develop without any physical trauma. For instance, witnessing a motor vehicle accident or motorcycle accident in which your loved one dies or seriously injured can cause psychological injuries. If you’re involved in a serious accident, sometimes the trauma triggers psychological damage- suffering severe burn injuries, losing a limb, becoming paralyzed or even just fearing for your life can cause psychological damage which could take several years to heal.
