Nervous shock claims arise when a person suffers a psychiatric injury after witnessing or hearing about the death or critical injuries suffered by a loved one in an accident. These injuries can be severe and can result in claims for pain and suffering, current and future lost income and medical and treatment expenses. If such a situation has occurred, you may be entitled to file a compensation claim Brisbane or in Queensland.
The classic example of a nervous shock claim would be travelling in a motor vehicle behind a loved one and witnessing an accident caused through the fault of another driver. Other examples would be arriving at the accident scene or being told of the death at a later time. Nervous shock claims can arise in many ways including motor vehicle accidents, incidents at work, public place accidents and medical negligence.
