Psychiatric Injuries

Psychiatric Injuries

As one of the most vulnerable parties on the road, cyclists can be involved in traumatic accidents and need psychological, as well as physical, rehabilitation.

One possible psychiatric disorder that you could suffer from, as a victim of a cycling accident, would be post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

PTSD is usually triggered by a very disturbing event in which the sufferer feared for their life. This could be the moments before a serious road collision.

Symptoms, such as nightmares or flashbacks, can emerge straight after an accident or within months or even years. You may have trouble sleeping or concentrating which can affect your work-life and future. PTSD could persist for years after you have recovered from your physical injuries, so it should be factored in separately to other treatment provision.

What we do

At Vélo Law, our friendly team will arrange for you to be independently assessed to determine how serious your psychiatric injury is, how long you are likely to suffer, or whether your symptoms will have a life-long affect. We will use this expert information to ensure that any expert treatment is adequately funded to help you to recover as quickly as possible.

What our clients say…

“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Velo to any individual that requires dedicated legal assistance with their claim for personal injury compensation”.
