Personal injury cases can be profoundly overwhelming and devastating. They continuously reassure a fact of life, which is that sometimes regardless of our choices, some things are simply out of our control, and that life can always take an unexpected turn. Losing a loved one is always a distressing occurrence, to say the least, but losing them due to the irresponsibility of someone else can be particularly upsetting and traumatizing. And it is in these scenarios, that we can most rely on the help of a personal injury attorney in Jackson, Mississippi.

The Effects of Personal Injury & How an Attorney Can Help

Besides the fact that preventable personal injury accidents are responsible for stealing entire lives and futures, these accidents rob mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters the opportunity of sharing life with the person they love. This trauma generated by tragic accidents, such as vehicular accidents, medical malpractice accidents, airplane accidents, and others often end up causing extreme emotional and psychological wounds. While some of these wounds heal with time, others must be professionally treated and dealt with throughout the entire adult life of the individual. The Center for Treatment of Anxiety and Mood Disorders for instance argues this exact point, saying that “the death of a loved one can create numerous psychological issues, including PTSD, particularly if the loss was tragic and unexpected.” Their article goes on to say that some of the ways to treat the negative emotional and psychological effects of loss is through “cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).” But the point is that regardless of whether you choose to utilize one of these treatment technics or you opt for traditional therapy, both counseling and other kinds of needed treatments come at a cost, and depending on your case, it could be reasonably argued that the financial burden of this and other costs linked to the accident, should be put on the at-fault party.

Personal injury attorneys understand that you are at a particularly vulnerable and difficult moment in your life, and that you are reeling from the loss of someone you loved deeply, but they also understand that having to bear the brunt for the financial responsibilities generated by the accident will not help ease your stress and frustration instead it will add to it. This is why according to The Balance Careers, injury attorneys work tirelessly to “help plaintiffs receive compensation for their losses, including loss of earning capacity due to an inability to work, pain and suffering, reasonable medical expenses, both present and expected, emotional distress, loss of consortium or companionship, and legal costs and attorney fees.” So if you have recently been faced with the loss of a loved one due to a negligent and irresponsible party, we recommend contacting a personal injury at Ballard Law at (769) 572-5111.
