If you’ve been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault and it’s had a impact on you, you might be able to claim compensation.
Whether you’re experiencing anxiety, panic attacks or (PTSD) - these issues can be an isolating and overwhelming experience.

Mental health issues are complex. From workplace stress to personal injuries, the consequences can be profound and life-altering.
Some of the most common situations leading to mental health compensation claims include:
Beyond the immediate emotional impact, mental health issues can affect all aspects of your life, from your ability to work to your relationships with others. The financial burden can also be significant, with therapy costs, medication and potential loss of earnings if you're unable to work. Making a compensation claim can help you to recover these costs and will be financial recompense for your suffering.
A injury refers to any mental or emotional harm that happens as a result of a traumatic event, act of negligence or intentional misconduct. Unlike physical injuries, which are often visible and easily diagnosed, injuries can be more subtle but equally serious. They can affect your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, impacting your ability to function normally in daily life.
injuries can manifest in various forms, such as anxiety, depression, (PTSD), and emotional distress. These conditions can result from a range of situations, including workplace harassment, accidents, medical negligence, or witnessing a traumatic event.
It's important to note that injuries are not just “in your head”. They are real, diagnosable conditions that can have long-term, debilitating consequences on your wellbeing. Treatment often involves therapy, medication and ongoing support, which can be both time-consuming and costly.
At Switalskis, we understand the complexities of injuries and are committed to helping you navigate the legal process for claiming the compensation you deserve. We approach each case with empathy and expertise, making sure you get the support you need every step of the way.
