Do All Personal Injury Cases Involve Physical Injury?

A personal injury in Austin, or elsewhere in Texas, need not involve just physical injury but can also involve some of the following: 

  • Emotional trauma resulting from accidents
  • Sexual harassment
  • Civil rights violations
  • Defamation of character
  • Damaging a professional reputation

If you are a victim of these or other areas where you feel a personal injury case is warranted, consult an experienced injury attorney in Austin.

Emotional scars can run deep

Even if you walked away from an accident without a scratch, emotional traumas can linger and continue to affect your everyday life. Some of the most common emotional injuries that an attorney can help you with are:

  • Being fearful of work areas or equipment involved in your accident
  • Suffering panic attacks while driving or when thinking about driving
  • Having fears of large vehicles when driving
  • Being unable to perform everyday tasks due to phobias

Emotional scars can last far longer than physical ones and the costs to correct them can be large.  Attorneys can help you recover fair compensation if you have suffered this type of injury.

Work-related personal injury cases

Many types of nonphysical personal injury cases result from on-the-job stresses and situations.  While today an attorney can specialize in any one of these areas, they are essentially personal injury cases.

Sexual Harassment

This common type of work-related personal injury case can also be the most varied.  While incidents can involve unwanted sexual advances from a male to a female co-worker, sexual harassment can also take the form of unwanted advances among the same sex, creating a hostile working environment through the telling of sexually-related jokes, or simply displaying items of sexual nature where a worker can take offense.

Civil Rights

Like sexual harassment, this type of on-the-job personal injury can take several forms. Civil rights violations can include creating a hostile work environment due to jokes, behavior, or displays that denigrate employees due to their race, ethnic background, language, or cultural identity.  Such an action can be brought by anyone of any race or background.

Damaging your reputation

Personal scores or vendettas can affect your employment.  Being badmouthed or blacklisted by a previous employer can affect your chances of getting another job in your chosen field.
