Psychological trauma or injury can be caused by accident, illness or even intentionally (in the case of assault). As a society we have come a long way in understanding the depth and severity of psychological issues and mood disorders, and in treating and preventing them. We still have a long way to go.
Psychological conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety, are much more commonly diagnosed and better understood than they were even twenty-five years ago. These conditions can be caused directly by an accident or an assault, or they arise after the fact as a response to pain and disability. In either case, these kinds of conditions present real challenges for the people who suffer from them, for their treating health care providers (such as doctors and psychologists) and for their families and friends. Psychological injuries and conditions such as depression and anxiety also present special challenges for lawyers in dealing with the complex legal and insurance issues that frequently arise.
