Depression After Construction Injury: How a Lawyer Can Help in the Bronx

Depression After Construction Injury

The physical pain of a construction accident can be debilitating, but the emotional and psychological toll can be just as severe. Many construction workers who suffer injuries experience symptoms of depression, which can significantly impact their lives and hinder their recovery. If you’re struggling with depression after a construction injury in the Bronx, know that you’re not alone and that legal help is available.

Understanding Depression After Construction Injuries:

The physical trauma of a construction accident can trigger a cascade of emotional and psychological challenges. Workers may face anxieties about returning to work, financial strain due to lost wages, and uncertainty about the future. These factors, combined with the pain and physical limitations caused by the injury, can create a breeding ground for depression.

Symptoms of Depression:

  • Persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or worthlessness
  • Loss of interest in activities previously enjoyed
  • Changes in appetite or sleep patterns
  • Fatigue and difficulty concentrating
  • Irritability, anger, or feelings of guilt
  • Suicidal thoughts or actions
