Even The Smallest Car Accident Can Lead to Anxiety, Frustration, and Depression and the Loss of Life’s Pleasures
It never ceases to amaze me when dealing with defendants and insurance companies after a car accident and I suggest a loss of life’s pleasures, the representative or attorney on the other side seems to suggest that most people have the ability to walk away unaffected despite the fact that there may not be “hard core” objective findings of broken bones. Certainly it goes without saying that a car accident is a traumatic incident that produces anxiety, frustration, and depression in most individuals. While each individual is unique, even a minor injury can impact an individual’s ability to function as they did prior to the accident according to studies. You don’t need to sustain “broken bones” to be severely affected or injured in a car accident.
Over the last thirty years as an experienced Philadelphia car accident attorney, I have been able to effectively demonstrate through objective testing that victims of car accidents scored lower in cognitive function testing and lagged behind healthy peers in a work or educational environment, suggesting that anxiety, frustration, or depression associated with getting hurt can explain the lower scoring. A Pennsylvania car accident victim is entitled to receive compensatory damages against a defendant who is liable for his or her negligence or harm. An experienced Philadelphia car accident lawyer should aggressively pursue financial compensation for various out-of-pocket expenses including but not limited to medical costs, property damage, lost wages, and loss of life’s enjoyment and pleasures.
