Signs of Psychological Harm

Psychological harm encompasses a number of disorders and conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In many cases, different forms of psychological harm involve similar symptoms. These symptoms may include:

  • The individual seeming emotionally distant
  • Difficulty focusing and paying attention
  • Mood swings and other behavioral changes
  • Flashbacks to the traumatic experience

Psychological harm often interferes with an individual’s everyday life, as these symptoms may arise at any time. For most forms of psychological harm, there is no cure. Individuals may be able to manage their disorders with therapy and medication, though this is often costly and time-consuming.

Individuals who suffer psychological harm may be entitled to financial compensation if the traumatic experience occurred because of another party’s negligence.
