The personal injury attorneys at Winston-Salem’s Nagle & Associates, P.A. have pursued thousands of insurance claims resulting from car, truck, and motorcycle accidents on behalf of their clients. While many North Carolina personal injury law firms focus solely on the physical injuries suffered by their clients, our veteran staff recognizes the fact that the mental and emotional effects of a traumatic vehicle crash also requires compensation. If you have been injured in an accident, you may experience anything from a feeling of anxiety when you have to drive to more serious conditions, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Fortunately, most collisions will not cause lasting emotional or psychological injury. However, pain from physical injuries coupled with sleep loss and physical limitation can cause clinical depression. Most victims of serious accidents face bouts of moderate to severe depression as they try to recuperate. If you have sustained physical injuries in a vehicle collision, you should be paid for all suffering associated with the physical injuries. Beyond this, you are also entitled to additional payment for your mental trauma and emotional suffering.
Developing a Psychological Injury Case in the State of North Carolina
Psychological injuries can be the result of a physical wound to the brain or other parts of the neurological system. However, they can also be caused by an individual’s response to a sudden, frightening event, like a car, truck, or motorcycle accident. It’s even possible for the victim to have avoided physical injury and still sustain psychological damage.
At Nagle & Associates, our personal injury lawyers are familiar with what it takes to collect money damages in a psychological injury case. In order to present a viable case, we look for diagnostic reports from top tier forensic psychologists and neurologists. We help to interview family members and friends about the effects of the event, and we will also ensure that extensive testing is performed to objectively measure and prove the scope and severity of a closed-head injury. Before we approach an insurer or at fault party, we will have a comprehensive post-accident psychological profile. We will not settle for anything less than full and fair compensation for every aspect of your emotional injury and lost cognitive function.
