When a New Jersey Construction Accident Leads to Depression

It's not uncommon for workers who've suffered an injury to experience depression after an industrial or construction accident. In New Jersey, you can pursue financial compensation for not only your physical damages, but your mental suffering as well, with the assistance of a New Jersey construction lawyer.

It's no wonder that the nature of a serious accident can lead to depression; the huge amount of medical bills you may face as well as lost work time can weigh heavily on someone.

When an accident causes mental pain and suffering due to an injury that was caused because of a business or property owner's negligence, you are within your legal rights to pursue compensation for your damages.

You'll first need to seek care from a mental healthcare provider. When your physician has diagnosed your condition and has written a statement of causation linking your injuries to your mental health, you and your attorney can use that information to make a claim for restitution.

Sometimes, even after receiving a proper diagnosis of depression after your construction accident, some New Jersey insurance companies may be reluctant to pay for your mental health treatment.

When this happens, it's best to consult an attorney in New Jersey. Our construction lawyers can assist workers in Pennsylvania and New Jersey in pursing financial compensation for any mental suffering and other damages attributed to your accident.
