IL injury lawyerBeing involved in a serious car accident can be a very traumatic experience to go through. Emotional and psychological injuries caused by a car accident can be just as severe as physical injuries. Car accident victims may suffer from flashbacks, nightmares, anxiety, depression, and a number of other psychological problems. These problems can heavily interfere with a car accident victim’s ability to work and complete everyday responsibilities. If you were involved in a serious auto accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your psychological, emotional, or mental injuries.

Car Accident Trauma Symptoms

Studies show that nearly 40 percent of car accident victims develop post-traumatic stress disorder. Even if a person is not physically injured in an accident, they can be deeply affected by the experience. This is especially true if they witnessed another person be severely injured or killed in the accident or if they came close to death themselves. A car accident can lead to psychological problems such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Nightmares
  • Flashbacks
  • Mood swings
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Depressed mood
  • Compulsive or obsessive behaviors
  • Phobias
  • Hypervigilance
  • Loss of appetite
  • Insomnia or hypersomnia

These symptoms can have a profound impact on a person’s life.
