Psychological Trauma Caused by Car Accidents

Many people tend to not acknowledge the serious psychological problems that a car accident can cause, but rather focus on the physical damage to themselves and their property. However, psychological trauma is just as serious of a health problem for car accident victims and can often have a greater impact on a person. Many people take much longer to recover from the psychological effects than the physical effects of a car accident and about one-third are still suffering from the effects at least one year later, according to a recent study.

It is essential to get treated for both the physical and emotional trauma that a car accident causes. Unfortunately, this treatment can be very expensive, causing many people to neglect psychological treatment as a result. However, victims of car accidents caused by others may be eligible to pursue compensation for their medical expenses. Contact the Kenosha car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C today at 800-242-2874 to learn more about how you may be able to get the compensation you need to afford any medical or psychological treatment which may be necessary.

Psychological Effects

When a person is involved in a car accident, the sheer trauma and stress of the accident may cause them to suffer from a number of debilitating psychological effects in the aftermath, including:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Depression
  • Panic attacks
  • Fear of driving or getting in cars

Not only can these emotional effects cause a person to have greater stress and a decreased quality of life, but they can lead to many other serious problems and even manifest physically.
