Struggling With Emotional Trauma After An Accident
It is difficult to know how your life will be affected after an accident. Missing work or struggling to get out of bed or to get back behind the wheel can make your old way of life seem foreign. The emotional trauma can linger for months, even years, before you realize how your personal life has been impacted.
What Is Considered Emotional Trauma?
You can file a personal injury claim if you are struggling with emotional trauma after an accident. At Klaiman Edmonds LLP in Toronto, our lawyers will guide you through the process of pursuing a claim to recover benefits so you can start to cope with your injuries.
Emotional trauma can come in many forms and affect each person’s life in a different way. Emotional trauma can include:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Even if you have a pre-existing health concern like depression or anxiety, you still may be able to make a claim if your condition has worsened due to an accident.
