Every year in the United States, there are around three million serious car accidents, which result in serious injuries and emotional trauma. Recently, the APA (American Psychological Association) released a study that shows 45 percent of people injured in automobile accidents end up being diagnosed with PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). Most of us realize the depth of physical injury a serious car crash can cause, but many are unaware of  the debilitating effects of PTSD, which can severely and sometimes permanently diminish the victim’s quality of life.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a profound psychological condition that can require years of professional therapy and prescription drugs to overcome. Sometimes, victims of automobile crashes are reluctant to acknowledge the trauma even though they have quit driving and feel anxious when riding in any motorized vehicle. Clearly, PTSD can change lives forever.Below are some common symptoms of PTSD.

  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Reluctance to acknowledge the accident
  • Anxiety when others discuss the accident
