A car accident is a traumatic event that can leave a victim with significant injuries. These injuries—some of which are lasting or permanent—can throw a person’s life of the tracks and into a spiral. The negative changes in a person’s life and livelihood, post-traumatic stress disorder, the physical pain, the struggles of recovering, and the financial strains of personal injuries can take a severe toll on a victim’s mental health.
At Viloria, Oliphant, Oster & Aman L.L.P., our team takes a client-focused approach to personal injury claims. We strongly encourage our clients to fully utilize both physical care and mental health resources when recovering from serious injuries. Taking a comprehensive approach to your physical and emotional needs following an accident places you in your best position moving into the future.
Damages for Emotional Harm
Nevada’s personal injury laws allow victims to seek damages against those whose negligence or wrongful acts caused the injury. This includes recovering damages for lost wages, lost future earnings, pain, and suffering, loss of consortium, and medical expenses stemming from the injury.
When people think of medical expenses, they may envision costs of emergency care, hospital admissions, physician visits, specialists, surgical procedures, or physical therapy. Emotional injuries can be just as harsh and debilitating for a victim. Fortunately, personal injury damages also cover the expenses incurred for emotional harm caused by the injury. This includes psychological or psychiatric care, as well as counseling.
It takes strength to seek help. We have seen counseling help victims develop tools to cope with the adversity their injuries have caused. Your struggles should not be ignored and you deserve the opportunity to address your needs appropriately and thoughtfully. If you have suffered a serious injury, we encourage you to be mindful of your mental health and to consider counseling as part of your overall recovery.
