Emotional Effects of Car Accidents
There are many ways that a car accident can affect those involved. This depends a lot on the type of accident, personality of the individuals involved, history of previous trauma, and current life activities and stress levels. However, it is not uncommon for those who have been in a car accident to experience some of the following as a result of that event:
- Overwhelming stress and anxiety
- Avoidance of cars or driving
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
Sometimes the emotional suffering after an accident is focused on feelings related to cars and driving, but sometimes it affects other parts of one’s life as well. Also, it is easy to understand how difficulty with driving or being in cars could cause difficulty in many other parts of one’s life.
