You Are Not Alone, Let Our Personal Injury Lawyers Help

Physical injuries are usually easy to see: broken bones, scars, burns, and disabilities are clear signs of a person’s physical distress and pain. However, the psychological conditions that come after an accident aren’t always obvious. Not everyone recognizes or understands the behavioral changes that can be observed when someone they know is suffering from a mental or psychological injury. We meet with people whose lives have been turned upside down because they are suffering the after effects of an accident.

Our lawyers understand that an accident can alter your personality.

The appearance of casts, braces, scars, and disfiguration can stir profound feelings of self-consciousness. This can lead to the diagnosis of more complex psychological conditions, including anxiety, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), depression, lethargy, loss of libido, avoidance behaviors and even phobias of everyday activities, such as driving or leaving the home. If left untreated, mental illness can become more severe or even produce serious physiological effects such as seizures, aneurisms and psychotic episodes.
