After an accident, the injured party needs time for physical ailments to heal. But, what about the suffering that isn’t visible? Those wounds also have an impact on a person who has been hurt in an accident, even if they aren’t seen in their physical appearance. When an accident happens, there are emotional long-term effects that impact a person on a day-to-day basis and plays a role in how they are able to live. When a case is brought in front of a judge or jury, a Personal Injury lawyer can use his skills to show the emotional and psychological toll the accident has had on their client. Furthermore, your personal injury lawyer can explain why an injured party should be compensated for the suffering they’ve endured.
Emotional Effects Related to an Accident
The way people are emotionally impacted by an accident can vary from person to person. Generally, these effects change the way a person functions in different aspects of their lives. A few examples of long-standing outcomes include:
- Emotional distress
- Changes in appetite
- Crying outbursts
- Feeling embarrassed
- Changes in weight
- Becoming withdrawn
- Changes in sleep pattern
These effects, and more, have a tremendous influence on a person’s quality of life and their interactions. When a person seeks to explain this to an insurance company or in court themselves, without knowledge of the law, they may not appear to be very credible.
