Understanding the Emotional Impacts of a Serious Injury

An accident causing serious injury can completely alter the course of a person’s life. Beyond the physical pain and the financial strain of serious injuries, the emotional impacts that come to those who suffer personal injuries cannot be overlooked. While these impacts may not be outwardly visible like physical injuries, the emotional effects of a personal injury can be completely debilitating and harmful. For example, a victim may suffer some combination of the following:

  • Mood Shifts
  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Phobia
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Personality changes
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Attention Disorders

These are all serious conditions and changes that can end relationships can change their ability to work and can lead to a long term decline in a person’s enjoyment or quality of life.

Damages for Emotional Distress

Nevada’s personal injury laws hold negligent people and companies liable for damages when their acts or omissions result in a person’s serious injury. This can include emotional pain or distress resulting from the negligence of another. Nevada law allows that person to pursue damages related to the emotional detriment sustained. This can apply to emotional injuries that derive from a physical injury or severe emotional injuries that manifest in physical conditions. Our personal injury attorneys can evaluate your situation to pursue maximum compensation for your claim.

Getting Help is Healthy

If you have been injured in an accident, you should always seek professional help. Just as you seek medical help for physical injuries, you should also seek professional help for the emotional pain, distress and suffering you are experiencing.
