We understand what you are going through

The aftermath of an accident can be life-changing. It is not uncommon for people who have been involved in an accident to suffer psychological injuries as a result of the trauma they have gone through. At Jackson Boyd we will regularly act on behalf of individuals who have suffered psychological injuries.

Here at Jackson Boyd we recognise that the consequences of being involved in an accident are not limited to physical injury. A psychological injury can affect your daily activities and can result in you having to take time of work. Following an accident you may suffer from increased anxiety, low mood or even from depression. It is not unusual for those involved in car accidents to develop a phobia of driving following their accident. The impact of this could be highly significant particularly if you drive for a living, live in a remote are or even depend on your car to look after elderly relatives. Our specialist lawyers have dealt with a number of claims just like yours and know not only what you are entitled to financially, but also the evidence required to support your claim. We will always ensure that your claim has the best chance of success by investigating all potential sources of evidence and making a claim for every aspect of your loss. We are also mindful of the types of treatment that can assist in helping you on your road to recovery and can arrange these on your behalf, at no cost to you.
Psychological or psychiatric injuries can have an effect not only on how you perceive yourself and your daily life, but can affect those around you who may then depend on for assistance. As Jackson Boyd is a firm of personal injury claim specialists, we deal with people in situations similar to yours on a regular basis. This has given us a developed and detailed understanding of how difficult psychological and psychiatric injuries can be for you. This means that you are dealing with a firm that truly looks after you every step of the way.

We will help you get your life back on track

When you contact Jackson Boyd’s specialist personal injury experts, we will always take special care and as much time as necessary to get to know you. It will also be necessary to seek as much information as possible from you regarding the circumstances relating to your psychological injuries and to find out exactly what impact it has had on you, your loved ones and your life as a whole. This will enable us to best represent you if you go ahead and make a personal injury claim. It will also mean that we can support and advise you throughout what is no doubt a difficult and challenging time in your life.

Once we have taken on your case, the team here at Jackson Boyd will handle everything for you, right through to the completion of your personal injury claim. In the first instance we will quickly intimate your claim to the other party, to ensure there is no delay. This will always be done in a sensitive and professional manner and we will make sure that you are kept fully up to date with every development. We will need to gather evidence to support your claim which may include; medical reports, pictures of the accident site, witness statements and police reports, as well as any other evidence we believe may improve your chances of securing maximum compensation.

If you have been unable to return to work we can recover loss of earnings until such time as you do return to work. If you are unlikely to be able to return to your previous occupation or indeed to any form of employment we will undertake the necessary investigations to allow us to calculate your long-term loss of income. We also aim to recover more than just compensation and can arrange for private rehabilitation treatment, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or Counselling to assist you with your recovery.
