Invisible Wounds: Recognizing and Seeking Compensation for Mental Health in Personal Injury Cases – Barli & Associates
When we think of personal injury cases, physical injuries often take center stage. However, the impact of psychological injuries can be just as significant, if not more so. In this blog, Barli & Associates delves into the importance of recognizing and seeking compensation for mental health in personal injury cases, shedding light on the challenges and avenues available for obtaining the compensation you deserve.
The Impact of Psychological Injuries
Personal injuries can cause not only physical pain but also psychological trauma. From anxiety and depression to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the emotional toll of an injury can be long-lasting and debilitating. Unfortunately, these “invisible wounds” are often overlooked or downplayed, leading to a lack of appropriate compensation for the victim’s suffering.
Challenges in Proving Psychological Injuries
Proving psychological injuries in personal injury cases can be challenging. Unlike physical injuries, which are often visible and supported by medical evidence, psychological injuries may not be as readily apparent. Additionally, insurance companies and defense attorneys may attempt to discredit or minimize the severity of mental health issues, further complicating matters for the victim.

Despite the challenges, it is possible to seek compensation for mental health in personal injury cases.
