Get support after a serious personal injury

A personal injury has the potential to change the trajectory of your life. Whether you were once hoping to be a runner but have an amputation from a car crash or you were a skilled artist who is now paralyzed from the shoulders down, it can be a life-changing experience to go through a major injury.

For some people who suffer from personal injuries, the real challenge becomes anxiety and depression. There are a few reasons these mental health issues could arise. Some include:

  • Head injuries that change the way the brain works
  • Depression from trying to cope with or understand an injury
  • Familial pressures

...and so on. It is very important for anyone who has gone through a life-altering injury to also have a mental health exam as they recover. It's totally normal to deal with issues such as anxiety about how you're going to support yourself, depression over losing the ability to do things you love or frustration with an injury. Some people may develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as well, which may need clinical support and intervention.

What should you do if you're depressed following an injury?

Don't wait to seek support. You may have injuries that have changed what you can or cannot do right now, but you can adapt and heal over time. It's important for you to have the medical and social supports you need to focus on your recovery. Your attorney will take steps to help recover compensation for your losses so that you can move forward and focus on your health and family.
