Psychological injury lawyers in Toronto help secure financial compensation and insurance benefits for people who have suffered trauma or emotional impairment from accidents, injuries, and other incidents.
Accidents, injuries, and negligent behavior can cause physical harm and disability. When someone has suffered a physical injury, they are often entitled to compensation to help cover medical expenses, loss of income, and emotional suffering.
However, psychological injuries can be just as damaging as physical ones. People who have suffered from psychological injury, trauma, or impairment can also experience loss of income, medical expenses, and difficulty supporting themselves.
It is common for psychological injuries to not be taken as seriously as their physical counterparts, even though the impact can often be the same. Insurance providers may deny coverage or downplay the link between an accident and resulting trauma.
Psychological injury lawyers can help clients secure the compensation and insurance benefits that they are entitled to, assisting them in resuming a normal life.
What Is a Psychological Injury?
A psychological injury is an impairment of the mind (but not a brain injury). Psychological injuries include a wide range of psychiatric conditions and impairments that can result from traumatic accidents or incidents.
While these injuries may not be as visible as a physical injury, they can be just as debilitating. Psychological injuries can cause symptoms including fatigue, lack of focus/attention, difficulty sleeping, and suicidal thoughts. Sufferers can have trouble earning income, supporting themselves, or dealing with aspects of day-to-day life.
There is still a stigma surrounding psychological injuries. Often, insurance providers downplay the impact of these injures or deny claims. People with these injuries are at risk of being taken advantage of. Mental injury lawyers can help ensure that the proper compensation, entitlements, and benefits are received.
