We have recovered tens of millions of dollars for injured clients throughout Southern California.

Depression And PTSD Often Accompany Accidents And Physical Injuries

Psychological injuries can result in a number of ways. In the workplace, stress can give rise to a claim of a psychological injury. The employer in question will try to deny coverage for these claims by arguing that the stress was in response to good faith personnel actions. They may deny the employees the need for compensation. We know how to challenge their argument.

In addition to workplace claims related to stress-induced injuries and psychological suffering, a psychological claim can also arise from the stress associated with a physical injury resulting from an accident. This additional suffering may justify seeking additional recompense from the individual or entity that caused the initial trauma.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can arise after a traumatic event, and our firm has a very good understanding of the science behind the diagnosis of such a claim. Our legal team also has relationships with physicians treating this disorder. In negotiations for settlement, we are highly successful. And if a trial is necessary, Patrick is a seasoned trial attorney who prepares diligently and presents evidence persuasively.
