Psychiatric injuries do not quite get the same attention and focus that come with physical injuries and as a result most people do not know that if you suffer a psychiatric injury following an accident that was not your fault then you can make a compensation claim both for the physical injuries and the psychiatric injuries.

Psychiatric injuries are a very personal thing and therefore any accident can result in a psychological injury regardless of whether it is an accident at work, a road traffic accident or caused by clinical / medical negligence. The most common psychiatric injury is post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which usually follows an accident where there was a risk of serious injury or death. Symptoms of PTSD include anxiety, nightmares and flashbacks. Other psychiatric injuries include phobias and depression.

Psychological Injury Accident Claims

The amount of compensation that will be awarded following an accident that results in psychiatric injury will depend on the seriousness of the injury. Whilst in most cases psychiatric injuries are short term they can, because they are so personal, result in serious long term problems and as a result a large compensation claim. In addition to compensation for the psychological injury and the physical injury you can also make a claim for subsequent loss such as medical expenses (likely to include some form of behavioural therapy), travel expenses, care costs and loss of income.

Psychological injuries can be complex and as a result you should ensure that you appoint one of our experienced personal injury solicitors** in Bristol to deal with your case. They will help you to gather evidence, establish liability and negotiate a settlement on your behalf. Furthermore, all this work will be conducted on a no win no fee* basis which means that you will not have to worry about paying expensive legal bills when you make a claim.

If you would like to make a claim for psychiatric injury compensation then you should bring your case to court within three years of the date of the accident otherwise you may be barred from doing so.
