Emotional and physical trauma suffered after a car crash or other accident can be devastating. For some accident victims, suffering continues for months or years after their physical injuries have healed. Psychological injuries, such as anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, can cause intense suffering and interfere with the accident victim’s ability to work.
Victims of negligent accidents are entitled to compensation for financial losses and suffering resulting from psychological injuries. However, insurance companies often resist paying fair compensation, claiming that no objective evidence exists that attests to the existence of psychological injuries.
Advocates For Accident Victims
For more than two decades, the attorneys at Rizio Law Firm have been representing victims of car accidents, truck accidents, crimes, and other negligent and intentional acts. During that time, we have successfully represented many clients who have suffered psychological injuries. Our goal when representing you will be to obtain maximum compensation for all of your medical costs, the costs of psychological counseling and prescription medications, lost income, and pain and suffering.
Post-Traumatic Stress Following An Accident (PTSD)
While there is no physiological evidence of a psychological injury, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, the existence of that injury can be demonstrated by other means. Our lawyers work with psychiatrists, psychologists and other mental health professionals to understand the suffering of our clients and to develop evidence that can withstand the scrutiny of juries.
The good news for people who have suffered psychologically traumatic events is that help is available. Counseling by mental health professionals can make a significant difference in the lives of accident victims, as can prescription medications. Rizio Law Firm is committed to helping our clients obtain the medical care and compensation they need to rebuild their lives. We will be your strong advocate, working tirelessly to obtain the best possible result for you.
