Emotional Distress & PTSD Lawyers

Emotional Distress & Post Traumatic Stress Attorneys in Sioux Falls

Being involved in a serious or fatal motor vehicle accident is among the most traumatic experiences a person can endure.

For many victims, the physical and emotional consequences endure long after a crash. In some cases, the consequences may not even be apparent in the immediate aftermath. A number of physical injuries, including soft tissue and ligament and muscle damage, may take days or weeks to become apparent, may worsen over time, or may not respond to treatment.

That’s one reason why we always encourage accident victims to reach out to an experienced Sioux Falls car accident attorney. You can gain access to the advice and resources of an experienced law firm without upfront cost. Because we work on a contingency fee basis, we are paid based on making a successful damage recovery on your behalf.

While investigating the facts and circumstances of your collision, and determining all of the parties responsible, is a primary task of your chosen law firm, a critical and often overlooked aspect is building a comprehensive claim that seeks to recover all of the damages to which you are entitled.

Economic and Non-Economic Damages

There are two types of damages:

  • Economic damages: Seek to reimburse you for actual expenses, such as medical bills, damage to your vehicle and lost wages. However, a complete damage claim must also take into account future expenses, including cost of rehabilitation, home care, reduced earning power and the likelihood of future medical complications and or disabilities that result from your collision.
  • Non-economic damages: Other compensable damages include physical and mental pain and suffering, emotional distress and other damages that result from your accident. Under South Dakota law, this category also includes physical impairment, mental anguish, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment, loss of companionship, services and consortium, and other

While victims are entitled to receive both types of compensation as a matter of law, there are certain types of economic and non-economic damages and medical care that insurance companies are most likely to challenge. This includes soft-tissue injuries such as neck or back pain and whiplash, as well as many types of emotional trauma, such as post-traumatic stress and anxiety.

Your chosen Sioux Falls car accident lawyer must have access to the medical and financial professionals that can build a comprehensive claim for all of the damages to which you are entitled, backed by solid evidence. Only with a solid case can you expect an at-fault insurance company to make a full and fair settlement offer, or for your chosen law firm to prevail at trial.
