Toronto Psychological Injuries Lawyer

Many individuals do not typically consider the psychological effects of a serious accident such as a car accident, dog bite attack or other type of traumatic event. However, the psychological injuries these incidents can cause may be just as debilitating as any physical injury.

Serving Clients In Ontario: Lawyer For Depression/Anxiety Disorders Caused By Serious Accidents

Yermus & Associates, and his legal team seek comprehensive coverage for all of their clients’ needs. If you or a loved one has suffered psychological injuries as a result of an accident caused by another’s negligence, you may be eligible to make a claim for not only any physical injuries but also the psychological ones. Led by Toronto psychological injuries lawyer Michael A. Yermus, our team of legal professionals can help you.

Understanding The Effect Of Psychological Injuries

Individuals who have suffered catastrophic injury in an accident can be at a higher risk for developing psychological conditions that may augment an already stressful situation. Typical conditions include:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Anxiety or panic disorders
  • Chronic physical pain due to prolonged mental stress
  • Depression

These conditions, while perhaps evident to a family member or close friend, can be difficult to prove. If complicating psychological issues are a part of your personal injury case or that of a loved one, we can engage qualified psychologists and mental health experts if necessary to assess your condition and evaluate its potential effect on your recovery.

Resolving Insurance Disputes

Recovering compensation for psychological stress can be difficult, even with solid preparations. If your claim has been denied, we can evaluate other channels for recovering benefits to which you may have access to provide needed financial support for psychological counselling or income replacement.
