Accepting the Possibility of Psychological Injury

Like many members of the Iowa workforce, you are probably more likely to keep your head down and focus on the task at hand than you are to speak up about emotional distress. At the Law Offices of Gallner & Pattermann, P.C., we believe in focus and determination: These attributes have the potential to support people through many hardships. However, we also believe that staying silent is not always the best option. Sometimes, it is better to speak up about how you feel.

We often find that our clients— especially those with life-altering injuries— have corresponding or derivative psychological damage. If you are like many Midwesterners, it might be difficult to even imagine admitting to feelings symptomatic of anxiety, depression or other severe emotional trauma. We find that our clients' resistance to admission is often compounded by the potential for argument by the opposing party in an injury lawsuit. You might imagine the stress of having your feelings debated in open court. However, we have seen many people reclaim their lives after receiving the compensation they need to obtain psychological therapy.

We see it as our duty to save our clients the embarrassment of having defendants belittle their psychological distress. To this end, we employ reliable and credible medical consultants to confer with our clients before making any legal claims. Since we know that individuals might be reluctant or unable to acknowledge psychological injury in themselves, we often suggest a consultation the moment we notice a decline in our clients' emotional health. It is in this way that we are able to give each of our clients every opportunity for full recompense— for the totality of their injuries. To learn more, please continue to our main site.
