Do I need a lawyer if I was mentally affected by my accident?

If you’re suffering from the psychological effects of a sudden accident, you need a determined attorney to help you seek for the compensation you deserve. Don’t let someone else’s negligence ruin your life. Traumatic events can cause insomnia and restless sleep that limits your productivity at work. Difficulty concentrating, perpetual tiredness, and anxiety can even lead to losing your job and falling behind on rent, credit card bills and more. More severe cases of P.T.S.D. can have serious, lifelong ramifications, and can make you feel trapped inside a painful memory that won’t go away. You may require years of expensive counseling to deal with these mental issues. At Ellis Law, we can fight for damages that will cover the costs of therapist visits, missed paychecks, and other financial hardships you may endure while you recover.
