The Emotional and Psychological Impact of Car Accidents: How Lawyers Can Provide Support

After a car accident, many seek a law firm’s assistance to help them recover damages. But did you know that, in addition to helping clients recover fair compensation, lawyers can help in various other ways as well?

Car accident victims may suffer from emotional trauma or severe injuries that leave them unable to think clearly. With a lawyer by their side, they can properly deal with the emotional and psychological impact of a car accident. For more information about how our car accident attorneys can provide victims with legal support after a car crash, contact us today at KJT Law Group.

Personal Injury Lawyers Provide Support While Car Accident Victims Recover

Law firms such as KJT Law Group offer free consultations to car accident victims and work on a contingency basis. No one should have their life upended because of someone else’s negligence. Knowing that a personal injury lawyer will be free of charge unless they win compensation for their client can help victims feel more comfortable seeking support.

Recovering From Physical Injuries After a Car Wreck

After a car accident, life can be overwhelming. Injury victims should follow their doctors’ instructions to recover as quickly as possible.

After hiring a car accident lawyer, a patient can take all the time they need to recover. Their lawyer will work on their behalf, compiling evidence, speaking with insurance companies, and fighting to get the settlement they deserve. The lawyer may ask questions about the accident, but the client will never have to choose between their recovery and their personal injury claim.

Recovering From Car Accident Emotional Trauma and Psychological Injury

In addition to physical injuries, many car accident victims suffer emotional trauma following a crash, leading to reduced quality of life. Commonly diagnosed forms of trauma include: 

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Newly developed phobias
  • Panic attacks
  • Severe anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia and other sleep issues

Anyone suffering from one or more of these mental health conditions following a car accident should seek help from a medical professional. Treatment will allow them to get the care they need to aid in their recovery and improve their daily life.

Like with physical injuries, lawyers will work on behalf of their clients while they undergo car accident emotional rehabilitation.

Car Accident Lawyers Can Account for All Compensable Damages

The liable party’s insurance company will often contact those involved in a car accident in the days following the crash. During these conversations, insurance adjusters will ask questions to gather information about how the accident took place and who was injured. They will use the answers they receive to determine the settlement offer they provide. They may even offer a quick settlement offer that sounds tempting. 

However, insurance companies often aim to pay as little as possible following a car accident. The first offer a victim receives may seem like a great deal, but there is a good chance it will not cover all their economic and non-economic damages.

A Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help With Insurance Negotiations

If a settlement offer covers the medical bills you’ve received so far, it may seem like a great offer. However, we recommend contacting a lawyer before accepting any offer. 

A lawyer can assist with determining whether a settlement offer is fair and negotiate on your behalf. Lawyers can gather information and ensure that you don’t overlook any damages that you may be entitled to. In addition to medical bills, you may qualify to receive other economic and non-economic damages, including: 

  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional and psychological distress
  • Mental anguish
  • Lost enjoyment of life

While your lawyer negotiates with the insurance company, you can take the time to recover physically and emotionally while a legal professional fights for your rights.

Car Accident Lawyers Can Help Reduce Stress

A lawyer can provide the necessary support to help reduce stress during a difficult time. While your car accident attorney will fight to ensure you receive the financial compensation you deserve, they can also provide support and advice to give you peace of mind.

Your Lawyer Will Fight for Your Best Interests

It is understandable for motor vehicle accident victims to be concerned about their financial well-being and future. However, with a lawyer working on their behalf, they can rest assured knowing someone is fighting for their best interests throughout the legal process.

Your lawyers will never do anything to harm your recovery. They will constantly fight on your behalf to ensure the insurance company treats you fairly and compile evidence to ensure you seek fair compensation to cover all your current and future losses.

Representing Clients in Court

If your lawyer cannot negotiate an appropriate settlement, it may be necessary to go to trial. Our lawyers at KJT Law Group gladly represent our clients in court to fight for the compensation they deserve.

While it may seem stressful to go to court to obtain compensation, you can relax knowing that a legal professional will be by your side throughout the legal process.
