Qualified Psychological Injury Lawyer in Toronto
Are you or a loved one suffering emotional distress and trauma after an accident that was caused by another person’s negligent actions? Unlike physical injuries, psychological injuries are never readily apparent. However, they are just as debilitating to victims as severe physical injuries. Psychological injuries can result in long-lasting trauma that affects the victim’s quality of life forever. These injuries can limit a person’s ability to function and enjoy life. If this happens, it’s important to work with a catastrophic injury lawyer in Toronto to help demonstrate how the injuries are related to the accident in question and secure compensation for damages incurred. At Grillo Law, we understand all possible options for victims of psychological disorders to access the compensation they deserve. We will fight for your negligent-related case and ensure you get a fair settlement.
Types of Psychological Injuries
Traumatic accidents such as car accidents can lead to a range of emotional symptoms including feelings of anger, guilt, and even hopelessness. Victims may experience flashbacks of traumatic events, nightmares, difficulty in concentrating, and even deprived sleep. If these feelings aren’t professionally managed, they may lead to a range of psychiatric disorders. These psychological disorders include:
PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)
These psychological injuries can take months or even years of therapy and consistent medication in order to fully recover from. In some cases, victims may never fully recover.
Proving That a Psychological Injury Occurred
The most difficult aspect when handling a psychological injury claim is proving that the injury occurred as a result of the accident. Most of the time, insurance companies want to prove that the victim is malingering in order to minimize the claim. They want to show that the symptoms of psychological injury aren’t as severe as is being reported by the victim. This makes it even more difficult for victims to prove their claim. That’s why it’s especially important to work with an experienced psychological injury lawyer in Toronto.
If you sustain psychological injuries that either developed or were made worse by an accident or disability, Grillo Law can help you file a claim for your damages. We will help in gathering adequate evidence to support the injuries including working with medical experts to prove the severity of symptoms. We’ll gather medical records and testimonies from medical experts as well as other witnesses to substantiate your psychological injuries. If you have a personal journal where you document the condition, this can also help in substantiating the claim.
