People can suffer serious injuries in car accidents, but physical injuries are not the only ones to be concerned with. Many come away from an accident with mental health issues, including anxiety. You can actually sue over this, and a Corpus Christi, Texas car accident lawyer can help you build a case.

What Are Some Common Anxiety Symptoms?

Anxiety can show up in many different ways. You and another person involved in the accident could both end up with anxiety even if you do not have the same exact symptoms. Most victims end up suffering from:

  • Trouble sleeping
  • Thoughts of self-harm
  • Flashbacks or nightmares of the accident
  • An inability to stick to their routine
  • A loss of enjoyment of activities they once loved
  • Addiction issues
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Paranoia

Our lawyers can help you get evaluated by a mental health professional. They can then testify on your behalf, strengthening your case and making a strong argument for why another driver should be sued over your anxiety.

When Can I Sue For Anxiety?

When you sue for anxiety you have to be sure of two things. First, you have to show that your mental health issues were caused by the crash. Second, you need to have been physically injured in the crash. So it’s not usually possible to sue if you were involved in a minor fender bender with no injuries, even though that can be a stressful situation for some.

A lawyer can help you build a case and show how your physical injuries and psychological injuries are both important. You deserve to be compensated for both.

How Long Do I Have to Sue For Anxiety?

Texas gives you two years to sue after a car accident. This can seem like a long time, but we recommend acting quickly. You do not want to miss your chance to pursue compensation. Plus, getting an early start can make it easier for your lawyer to secure important evidence.
