Psychological Injury Lawyer
Written by Joseph A. Nagy
My name is Joseph A. Nagy, and I am an experienced psychological injury lawyer (PTSD lawyer). My firm is located in Edmonton and serves psychological injury victims in central and northern Alberta. I specialize in injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents.
By far the most common psychological injury I see is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The amount of compensation you might be entitled to receive for PTSD varies widely and depends upon the circumstances of your accident.

Joe took my case after I was dropped by my previous lawyer of almost 5 yrs. Joe explained the challenges my case was facing and how to best proceed, I feel he was honest with his assessment of my case and I appreciated his straight to the point attitude. I am very pleased to say he and Nicole (his assistant) always treated me with respect and never made me feel like any question or concerns I had were stupid were or bothersome. Much to my surprise my phone calls and emails were always answered in a very timely fashion. Nicole played a very big part in the smooth process of getting this case settled . Joe and Nicole are a great team and I highly recommend Joe if you are looking for a no nonsense straight to the point lawyer who gets things done.
Thank you for settling my case so promptly.Lisa Bishop

PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) is common for those who have witnessed or have been victims of traumatic events such as a motor vehicle collision. Re-living the experience in your mind causes anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, nightmares, nervousness, and physiological responses like sweating. Common behavioral responses include:
- avoiding places, people, and circumstances that remind you of the traumatic event, for example, avoiding the scene of an automobile accident
- alcohol consumption, particularly common in cases of severe PTSD.
- fear, horror, anger, guilt or shame are common reactions to survivors of motor vehicle accidents when family members have perished (survivor’s guilt).
I urge you to seek help if you need it and consider talking with a qualified psychological injury lawyer (PTSD injury lawyer). Each case is specific. Your psychological injury lawyer should be able to involve the necessary personal injury experts to help prove your case.
