Tips for Suing for Psychological Trauma Following a Fatal Auto Accident

Being in an auto accident is bad enough. But when someone dies in an accident and you witness it, you may have psychological trauma to deal with. Below are some tips that you can use when you want to sue for psychological trauma.

Seek help

The first thing that you want to do after you have been involved in a road traffic accident where someone died is to seek psychological help.  This is going to help you with the trauma you are experiencing and also help with your case. If you are not seeking help for the trauma, you are going to have trouble showing that you are experiencing trauma. So make sure that you find someone who you can talk to in order to show that you are experiencing psychological trauma because of the accident.

Start a diary

The second thing that you want to do is to make sure that you are writing down what you are feeling and experiencing after the accident. Again, this is going to help you psychologically but it’s also going to prove to the court that you are hurting and that you have been traumatized because of the accident. It’s very likely that the counselor that you are seeing will also make this suggestion as a part of your own recovery from the shock and trauma you experienced.

Get a lawyer

The third thing that you want to do is to make sure that you find a lawyer to help you with moving your psychological trauma claim forward. Make sure that your lawyer is experienced with psychological trauma claims and that they understand that you are getting counseling and keeping a diary. It’s also important that they understand what medications you are on and what you have lost because of the accident, such as time off from work and anything else that the accident has affected in your life.
