Motorcycle accidents are terrifying events, and emotional trauma can easily develop in the aftermath. To get the compensation you need for your recovery, discuss your legal options with a Boise motorcycle accident PTSD lawyer.

Motorcycle accidents can cause a wide range of injuries, both physical and mental. While injuries like broken bones, lacerations, and brain damage are common, many victims find themselves experiencing emotional trauma, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), after accidents that are particularly severe.

If this is your situation, a Boise motorcycle accident PTSD lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates can help you seek the compensation you need to pay for your PTSD-related losses and damages.


Proving the PTSD-Accident Link

It isn’t always easy to prove that PTSD is connected to or caused by a motorcycle accident, which is just one of the reasons why working with a lawyer can be so beneficial. In order for your case to succeed, you must be able to demonstrate beyond reasonable doubt that your emotional trauma was directly caused by the accident.

If you had PTSD before the accident or if you have a history of mental illness, this can become quite difficult. Add to this the inherent stress, anxiety, and depression experienced while suffering from emotional trauma, and your legal challenges could intrude into and interfere with your recovery. Although proving this connection can be difficult, it is not impossible as long as you have a qualified legal team helping you.


The Damage Caused by Emotional Trauma

PTSD—and any other form of emotional trauma—can have a dramatic impact upon your life. The disorder could make it impossible for you to get back onto a bike or even get into a car. This can make it incredibly difficult to get to work, much less attend to daily living activities.

Your quality of life can decrease in other ways, as well. Your PTSD could be triggered by sights, sounds, and locations that remind you of the motorcycle accident, snapping you back to that point in time. This can interfere with every aspect of your life, and could even put you into a situation that results in a physical injury.

Your personal relationships might suffer, as well. This is a noneconomic loss known as “loss of consortium.” And of course, you’ll experience financial damages related to your treatment, such as medication and therapy costs. All of these damages—whether financial or noneconomic—should be included in your financial settlement, and with our help, you’ll know that your compensation is fair.
