    Can I Pursue Non-economic damages for PTSD?

    Yes. When someone experiences PTSD as a result of an accident caused by the negligence of another party, hiring a catastrophic injury lawyer can give their case the best possible chance of success. A lawyer can help you pursue compensation for your emotional, physical and financial damages, and negotiate with the insurance company for the fair settlement you deserve.

    They will begin by thoroughly investigating the circumstances surrounding the accident to establish liability, gathering and analyzing evidence that can help strengthen a claim.
    Once liability is established, an attorney will work diligently to prove the damages caused by the accident, including the resulting PTSD.


    How Can an Attorney Prove Psychological trauma?

    To prove non-economic damages, an attorney will collaborate with medical experts, such as psychologists or psychiatrists, who can evaluate and provide professional opinions regarding the psychological impact of the accident and its long-term effects on the individual's mental health. These expert opinions play an important role in demonstrating the connection between the accident and the development of PTSD.


    What Other Types of Damages Am I Entitled to After a Traumatic Accident?

    An attorney will investigate the incident to accurately value the claim and determine what other types of damages their client may be entitled to.

    Economic losses may include medical expenses, therapy costs, lost wages, and reduced earning capacity. Non-economic losses encompass pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and any other negative effects on the individual's overall well-being. An attorney will use evidence, such as medical bills, employment records, and testimonies from the affected person and their loved ones, to accurately quantify and present these damages


    Can an Attorney Negotiate With the Insurance company on My Behalf?

    A catastrophic accident lawyer at MVP Accident Attorneys knows how to skillfully negotiate with insurance companies to fight for a fair settlement that adequately compensates their client for PTSD-related damages. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, a lawyer will be prepared to take the case to court and present the case before a judge and jury.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
