Mental and Emotional Injuries
People often don’t pay nearly as much attention to their mental and emotional injuries from car accidents as they should. Reactions such as shock, stress, disorientation may be written off as non-trauma-related reasons, but in reality, car accidents and the resulting injuries regularly cause mental trauma to victims that needs proper treatment—just like physical injuries do.
PTSD can manifest through many symptoms that can derail your life at work and home. These can include:
- Sudden, involuntary flashbacks of the accident
- Blackouts after violent flashbacks
- Terrifying and realistic nightmares
- Intense distress if you encounter any reminder of the crash
- Irrational fears of non-harmful events or objects
- Avoidance of any reminder of the crash, including cars themselves
- Withdrawal from family, friends, and coworkers
- Depression and anxiety
It is also common for PTSD sufferers to develop other mental conditions. Research also shows that of the car accident survivors in treatment for PTSD, 15 percent suffered from a debilitating phobia of driving, and 27 percent suffered from anxiety disorder due to their crashes. These conditions often will not go away on their own.
Treating Your Mental Trauma
Most people wouldn’t fracture a leg and refuse to go to the doctor—so why are so many people reluctant to treat mental injuries? Unfortunately, society often attaches a stigma to mental and emotional treatments—when in reality it is just another type of medical treatment that you may need in order to heal injuries you cannot see with the eye. Here at Maida Law Firm, we can help.
The following treatments can help PTSD and mental trauma sufferers:
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing
- Exposure therapy
