Understanding Auto Accidents Find Out If You May Be Entitled to Compensation

Car Accidents May Trigger PTSD

Have you ever attempted to fall asleep at night only to be disturbed by a vision that you can't erase from your mind? Imagine if you relived a tragic memory every time that you tried to sleep or, for that matter, every moment of the day. Such is possible for those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

PTSD can affect someone who goes through a horrible event or disaster. Also, an individual who is not injured but still witnesses the tragic event or death of someone else can suffer from this disorder. Accordingly, PTSD can wreak havoc on both those directly and indirectly involved in a car accident in Georgia.

Several signs of PTSD include:

  • Anxiety and worry
  • Discomfort in social situations
  • Lack of emotion
  • Fear
  • Flashbacks
  • Nightmares and insomnia
  • Inability to concentrate on work

If someone exhibits these symptoms, then he or she may be a victim of post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of a car crash. Sometimes, victims cannot let go of a past traumatic experience that frightened them, leaving them with anxiety and fears for their own safety. Living through a horrible car wreck can trigger PTSD.

When this occurs, a victim needs to get therapy immediately, as this disorder can be treatable. If you, a spouse, or another loved one has suffered post-traumatic stress disorder after a Georgia car crash that was caused by a careless driver, you may be able to recover damages for medical bills, therapy, and lost wages.
