Dealing with PTSD After an Accident

Many people are not even aware that victims of serious car and truck accidents will sometimes suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The truth is that it’s not uncommon for accident victims to suffer from PTSD, which is a psychological disorder that can cause depression, hopelessness, anxiety, panic attacks, hallucinations, insomnia, flashbacks and other significant symptoms.

Thankfully, there are treatments available that can often alleviate the symptoms of PTSD, including various types of psychological therapy as well as medications. That’s why it’s important that you consult a physician if you or a loved one begin suffering PTSD symptoms following an automobile accident. It’s also important to know that these symptoms may not be apparent for days, weeks, months or even years after the accident takes place.

In addition, if you have made an insurance claim or have filed a lawsuit over an automobile accident, you should let your attorney know if you are experiencing symptoms of PTSD. An experienced personal injury attorney will make sure that you are compensated properly for the mental anguish that can be caused by PTSD. Considering that the symptoms can persist for many years, you may be suffering them for a long time – and you may also be burdened by significant medical bills. Receiving proper compensation for all of this will be vital to your well-being in the years to come.
