Psychological Injury Claims

Psychological Injury Claims

Too often people have been involved in life threatening accidents, however, they do not endure physical injury and therefore they will not get fully assessed by a medical professional. In many cases, victims of personal injuries experience delayed psychological injury after the accident; they may experience severe financial costs to treat this injury by seeking psychological therapies, cognitive-behavioural therapy sessions, support groups and medication. It is important to know that you may proceed with a claim in Northern Ireland for this if the accident happened within the past three years or two years for the Republic of Ireland.

What will I receive compensation for in a psychological injury claim and how much will I receive?

In psychological injury claims, compensation is sought for the emotional and psychological harm you have suffered due to the negligent or wrongful actions of another party. The specific compensation you may receive can vary depending on the circumstances of the case, the severity of the psychological injuries, and the liability of the parties involved.

Here are some common types of compensation that may be sought in psychological injury claims:

  • Medical Expenses: You can typically seek compensation for reasonable and necessary medical expenses related to the diagnosis and treatment of your psychological injuries. This may include therapy, counselling, and medication costs.

  • Lost Wages: If your psychological injuries have resulted in missed work, reduced earning capacity, or the inability to work, you may be entitled to compensation for your lost wages and future earning potential.

  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for the emotional and psychological pain and suffering related to your injuries is a significant part of a psychological injuries claim. The value assigned to pain and suffering can vary based on the severity of your condition and its impact on your life.

  • Counselling and Therapy Costs: In cases where ongoing counselling or therapy is required to recover from the psychological injuries, compensation may be available for these expenses.

  • Prescription Medications: If your treatment includes prescription medications to manage your psychological condition, you can seek compensation for the cost of these medications.

  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life: Compensation may be available for the impact of your psychological injuries on your ability to enjoy activities and experiences you previously enjoyed.

  • Loss of Consortium: This pertains to compensation for the loss of companionship, care, and support that your family members may experience due to your psychological injuries.

The specific compensation you receive will depend on the facts of your case, the available insurance coverage, the extent of your psychological injuries, and other relevant factors. To estimate potential compensation accurately, consult our personal injury solicitors at P.A. Duffy & Co. They can assess the details of your case, negotiate with insurance companies, and help you navigate the legal process effectively.
