As car accident injury lawyers, we see firsthand the impact that car accidents have on mental health and emotional well being. These injuries may be invisible to most, but to the victim the impact of a mental health injury can be catastrophic. While the physical injuries sustained in a car accident are often the focus of medical attention, it is important not to overlook the impact that car accidents can have on mental health and emotional well-being.
Here are some of the ways that car accidents can impact mental health and emotional well-being:
Even a car accident that does not cause any physical injuries can result in major emotional and mental health issues. If you have been involved in a car accident, and your noticing changes to your mood or emotions, it is important to seek medical attention. A mental health professional can help you process the trauma of the accident and develop coping strategies to manage the emotional injuries. If you know someone that was involved in a car accident, pay attention for signs of mental health injury and encourage your loved one to get appropriate help.
The good news is that, in many cases, mental health issues following a car accident can improve with psychological treatment. I recently sat down with a clinical psychologist, Dr. Jeremy Frank, to learn more about mental health after a car accident and options for victims to get better. The video is posted below or you can watch it on our YouTube channel or Podcast.
