What is a Psychological Injury?

A psychological injury is a form of emotional trauma in which a person’s psyche is damaged. This trauma may lead to anxiety disorders, such as General Anxiety Disorder or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Physical Symptoms:

Emotional Symptoms:

  • Guilt/Self-blame

In order to alleviate your stress during this time, we will endeavor to help you receive the compensation you deserve.

Common Causes

Typically, there are at least a few reasons why some situations promote emotional trauma. Some of these reasons may include the following.

  • They were unexpected or unanticipated
  • You were unable to keep the event from taking place
  • You found the circumstances unmanageable

Furthermore, emotional trauma can arise from events including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Car accident
  • Death of a loved one
  • Extremely disheartening incident
  • Finding out about a life-threatening disease
  • Undergoing an amputation
  • Becoming paralyzed
  • Natural disasters
  • Physical assaults/abuse (i.e. rape, molestation, domestic abuse, or incest)


Unfortunately, if you do not seek medical help, your phobias and anxieties may linger for many years, and the physical and emotional symptoms listed above will potentially become worse. Consequently, we believe it is imperative for you to receive psychological treatment.

Treatment begins by addressing some of the behavioral issues associated with a psychological injury. Stress reduction techniques are used in order to help you prevent a full-scale attack of stress symptoms. Additionally, psychotherapy has proven to be beneficial for people in many cases. However, in most instances, there is no need for comprehensive psychotherapy as most people, with a little help, are able to overcome their psychological trauma. If necessary, you may be prescribed anti-anxiety medications.
