Sometimes a traumatic experience leaves a lasting impact on your life. It can leave so much of an impact, in fact, that you are unable to work, drive or do things you once enjoyed — like spend quality time with your family.
If you have been diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), you are not alone. At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., our legal team can help you hold negligent people accountable for the harm caused.
Located in New Haven, Connecticut, our clients are people who have experienced mental anguish in many different types of accidents, including motor vehicle accidents, accidents caused by fires or explosions and workplace accidents. Many are just people who witnessed a bad accident — like the wrongful death of a loved one. Their lives are forever changed.
Many people worry that it is not possible to take legal action, seeking compensation for psychological harm. This is not true. Courts have come to realize that psychological harm is just as real is physical harm. When a person experiences mental pain after an accident, courts allow psychologists and psychiatrists to testify as to psychological damages.
When someone’s negligence has caused emotional harm, jurors often award PTSD sufferers compensation, which gives victims the resources to get treatment and to move forward with their lives.
Any well-established law firm should be able to tell the story of its success by pointing to successful verdicts and settlements. At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we take professional pride in the results we have been able to achieve on behalf of our clients injured in accidents, assaults or as a result of medical malpractice. These results include million- and multimillion-dollar outcomes on behalf of personal injury victims throughout Connecticut.
At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we handle all Emotional Injuries & PTSD cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that we do not get paid unless and until you receive a settlement or a jury award.
