The Connection Between Mental Health & Car Accidents

The Trauma of a Car Collision Is Not Always Physical

If you’ve been in a traumatic car accident, you may be suffering from psychological trauma that lasts long after your physical wounds are healed. It is not uncommon for accident victims to have anxiety, depression, accident-related phobias and PTSD. These mental and emotional effects can persist and cost accident victims hundreds or thousands of dollars in health care services. Why should you have to pay for treatment of trauma that was not your fault? You need the help of our team at Eliot Reiner, APLC. Our Sacramento car accident lawyer is backed by over 15 years of experience fighting for clients’ rights to fair compensation.

Contact our team to discuss the trauma you are suffering from your car accident.

Psychological Effects of Car Accidents

Mental and emotional distress after a car accident is nothing to be ashamed of. If you are suffering from any of the following conditions, speak with your physician and discuss your diagnosis with our friendly team.

Trauma from a car accident may look like:

  • Flashbacks of the accident marked by involuntary, recurring and intense memories
  • Nightmares
  • Withdrawal from friends or society
  • Depression
  • Self-harm
  • Lack of focus
  • Avoidance of vehicles or driving
  • Irritability/uneasiness
  • Anxiety

Experiencing any of these symptoms may be an indication of accident-induced psychological trauma that is compensable in a personal injury case.
