Do I Need A Psychological Trauma Lawyer?

Accidents not only injure people physically but can leave severe psychological repercussions. In our experience, psychological injuries can disable a person as much as some of the most extensive physical injuries. Through top psychiatrists and psychologists, we have assisted people suffering from severe PTSD (post- traumatic stress disorder), anxiety, major depression, adjustment disorder and somatic symptom disorder. 

It is important to us that we both understand your psychological injury and how it impacts your life.

A Psychological Trauma Lawyer Can Help You

When should I contact a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Retaining a lawyer as soon as possible post-accident is extremely important.  Richard Edwards will guide you through important first steps and provide critical guidance for the entire process.   You have a 2 year limitation from the date of the accident to file a claim against the other party involved in the accident.  

I was seriously injured in an accident but I can’t afford lawyer fees.  What should I do?

The initial consultation is always free of charge even if you decide not to proceed with opening a claim. We work on a contingency basis which means that we will deduct an agreed upon percentage of your settlement at the conclusion of your file.  We will never charge you for any lawyer fees or disbursements while we are working on your personal injury claim.

Should I report my injuries to my insurance company following the accident?

• Yes, you have "Section B" benefits through your insurance policy that will cover your treatment for two years following an accident.


• There are time limits on opening a Section B claim through your insurance provider, so make sure you contact them immediately following an accident if you have any injuries/symptoms.


• Your insurance company will require you to complete multiple forms, including the Notice of Loss and Proof of Claim and Treatment Plan forms.  They will also require written treatment recommendations from a doctor.


• When you retain Richard Edwards as your lawyer, he will help you through this process.

What is an Examination or Questioning?

• This is an important pre-trial step where lawyers will ask questions to the other parties to get a better understanding of the claim.


• Common questions include:

 - How did the accident happen?

 - What injuries did you sustain and how are they affecting your every-day life?

 - What treatment have you required since the accident?

 - How has the accident affected your employment/educational pursuits, etc.
