The Law Offices of Vincent J. Ciecka Represents Claims from the One Injury Not Visible: Psychiatric Injury


Pennsauken, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/08/2018 -- The Law Offices of Vincent J. Ciecka aren't just the premier slip and fall attorneys in NJ, but they also provide the area's most professional psychiatric injury claims as well. The last few months have seen recent breakthroughs in the medical field that may have consequential effects for the legal community regarding claims for psychiatric injuries. For instance, a new blood test designed by Banyan Biomarkers to help doctors to diagnose traumatic brain injuries has won U.S. government approval.

This move opens the door for the biotech industry's rush to find a way to quickly and accurately diagnose concussions. The test works by detecting two proteins present in the brain cells that can leak into the bloodstream following a blow to the head. This can help doctors determine who needs urgent care when suspected of brain bleeding and has far-reaching potential to be used in sporting activities and on battlefields across the world when dealing with traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).

The neuropsychological deficits associated with a TBI can include diminished memory, reasoning skills, and inhibitory control, and others. Consequently, psychiatric disorders following a TBI are a frequent occurrence. However, these psychiatric injuries can occur as a result of any stimulus, including from the workplace. They can be due to emotional shock, even without any apparent physical harm.

For instance, an employee who witnesses an accident or is exposed to trauma at the workplace may be deemed to have suffered a psychiatric injury. While for some this may be a sudden and unexpected event, for others it can be a prolonged and chronic situation that develops over time. Either way, this is a severe condition which can be debilitative to those who are affected by it.

Psychiatric claims aren't limited to those directly involved in these events. It's also possible to have a psychiatric claim from family members who have witnessed horrific events. These claims are for negligent or intentional infliction of emotional distress. This type of claim occurs when one person engages in behavior that causes the severe mental anguish of another person.

In this situation, a wrongdoer is subject to laws regarding their responsibility of action by extremely, outrageously, recklessly committing an act that causes mental distress in another person.
