Should you seek psychological care after a crash?

A personal injury is more than just physical. Sometimes, the injury impacts your psychological well-being, too. For example, if the accident was traumatic, you may suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression or anxiety.

If you've noticed changes in your behavior or the behaviors of loved ones who were involved in a traffic accident, then you may want to bring up the topic of psychological support. Post-traumatic stress after a traffic accident is common, and with millions of crashes in the U.S. each year, it just makes sense to consider the fact that psychological stresses could affect you, too.

What should you do if you struggle with PTSD after a crash?

If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, night terrors or other symptoms of PTSD, it's essential that you reach out to your medical provider. There are therapists who specialize in the treatment of PTSD. There are also medications that may help you relax as you recover.

Some common feelings after a crash include being angry, feeling guilty, being in shock and being uneasy. Don't think that you're alone if those feelings are something you're feeling, too. Sometimes, the feelings can be strong enough to make it hard or impossible to live a normal life, and that's where medical care should come in.

Your attorney will help you file a claim that covers any necessary physical or psychological support you need after a collision. The right settlement should take into consideration your need for medical care for physical and emotional needs. Make sure you get the right care, so you can fully heal.
