Personal injury claims should also account for psychological injuries

On behalf of Hyland Law Firm, LLC posted in Car Accidents on Wednesday, October 1, 2014.

A serious auto accident can result not only in painful physical injuries; many people are left psychologically traumatized. It's not uncommon for crash victims to experience extreme anxiety and fear whenever they try to drive again. In other cases, an unexpected set of circumstances could trigger a crash-related panic attack, and some people develop insomnia after an auto accident.

Attorneys at Hyland Law Firm, LLC, understand what car accident victims go through, While we work to maximize compensation for physical and psychological injuries, we also simplify the legal process for our clients by providing them with straightforward advice that is easy to understand.

To obtain the maximum amount of compensation, it is important to accurately assess the long- and short-term costs of an injury. These costs may not be obvious at first glance, and you can be assured that an insurance company will do what it can to limit or even deny compensation for the full range expenses.

A personal injury attorney can thoroughly investigate your case and account for all of the damages resulting from the accident, including the cost of any physical rehabilitation and psychiatric care that may be necessary. In addition, an attorney can negotiate with the insurance company and fight for the full measure of coverage. It is therefore important that injury victims do not agree to accept an initial insurance settlement, even if it seems attractive at first glance.
