As psychiatric injuries are very personal they can flow from any type of accident, even following an accident that someone independent may feel was not serious enough to result in psychiatric injury.Psychiatric injuries are complex and difficult to deal with even with medical assistance.

If you are unfortunate enough to suffer a psychiatric injury following an accident that was not your fault (or was partially your fault) then you could be entitled to make a compensation claim against the negligent party.

The most common accidents that result in psychiatric injury are as follows:
•    Car Accidents
•    Falls from Heights
•    Accidents at Work
•    Surgical Errors
•    Sporting Accidents

There are a number of psychiatric injuries that could follow an accident and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is probably the most common. If you are not sure whether you, a friend or a family is suffering from a psychiatric injury following an accident then you should consider whether any of the following symptoms are present: avoidance behaviour, sleeplessness, nightmares, flashbacks, becoming easily upset and depression.

Make a Claim for a Psychiatric Injury

The amount of compensation that will be awarded following a psychiatric injury will vary depending on the individual’s state of mind, the amount that has been awarded in previous cases and government guidelines. In addition to compensation for the psychiatric injury, there could also be a claim for physical injuries and any consequential loss to the victim which would include damage to property, loss of income, travel expanses and medical bills.

If you would like to make a compensation claim following a psychiatric injury then you should ensure that you appoint one of our experienced personal injury solicitors** Wakefield to deal with your claim as soon as possible. In any event, they should be appointed well within three years of the date of the accident that resulted in the psychiatric injury. Any claim brought more than three years after the date of the accident (or three years from their 18th birthday in the case of a child) may become statute barred under the Limitation Act 1980.
