Psychology and Personal Injury: What’s the connection?

When seeking legal assistance for a personal injury, it's important to consider various factors in selecting the right firm for you. While things like mental health and psychology might not initially seem like a factor to consider in your case, they actually intersect with nearly every stage of a personal injury claim!

At the beginning, an intake specialist is your first point of contact here at Brooks Injury Law. Their entire job is to make what can potentially be a very stressful and complicated process into something that's comfortable and easy to navigate, so a firm that has intake specialists that are empathetic and use a client-centered approach is something to look for.

What is a client-centered approach? Like the customer-centric business strategy, in psychology, a client-centered approach believes that you, the client, should have a say in all steps of a process, as you are the expert in your life and the expert in the pain and suffering your injury has caused you.

You should look for these same traits once a paralegal and attorney are involved, as they will be the main points of contact throughout your case. Personal injuries are just as mentally and emotionally traumatic as they can be physically, and for some clients, psychiatric or therapeutic treatment is vital in helping them not only process and heal the trauma of a personal injury but navigate the stress that comes with a personal injury case.

Focusing on your physical and mental health even comes into play when fully explaining your injuries - the long-term impact of serious physical injuries can be debilitating, and these unique factors can affect multiple aspects of your case, including how much your case may be worth. Consulting with an attorney that wants to know every single way your life has been impacted by what happened to you is incredibly beneficial to your personal injury case.

A client-centered approach is fundamental to a personal injury law firm. At Brooks Injury Law, our commitment goes beyond just helping you recover physically. Our experienced team is dedicated to understanding every detail and need you may have, no matter how insignificant it may seem to you. Our job is to stand by your side at every step and help you achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
