“Were you hurt?” is usually the first question you are asked when you tell someone about your automobile accident. Depending on the type of vehicles involved, the speed the cars were traveling, and many other variables, injuries go hand in hand with car collisions. When you are hurt in an accident and perhaps cannot work right away, you may also need treatment, transportation to get treatment, and help making your financial responsibilities. Contact a personal injury attorney immediately to learn more about how to recover your financial losses and gain compensation for your injuries when someone else caused the accident.
Car accident injuries vary broadly. You might have localized pain, or many different bruises or fractures. Or, you may have suffered mental and emotional distress and are having many symptoms from the experience. It is even possible you have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD. Each will require its own type of treatment to help promote recovery.

When a catastrophic event occurs such as a car accident, everyone reacts differently. Some people are immediately resilient while others are impacted severely. Witnessing an accident can be traumatic but witnessing a vehicle accident as it happening to you may cause shock, anxiety, or depression—immediately or weeks or months later. PTSD is very common among car accident victims and can bring many symptoms of anger, lack of sleep, eating disorders, fear of driving to mention a few.
