Being in a car accident can have serious consequences on your life. Many of these consequences can impact your health. Here are some of the ways that a car accident can affect you.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

One study showed that nearly a third of people suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following a car accident. Many people were still suffering from stress even one year after the accident. This is more likely to occur if you were a passenger in the accident. The condition was demonstrated by being anxious or being afraid to drive. You may be suffering from depression or a generalized feeling of anxiety. This can make it more difficult for you to accomplish your day to day tasks.

Short Term Injuries

Depending on the severity of the collision, you may have been injured. This can lead to a painful recovery or even hospitalization. You may miss work because of your injuries. It can also cause you to miss out on other events in your life. Your injuries will eventually heal, but it may take several months to fully recover. This can lead to you having financial problems even after you do return to work. Your financial hardships may not be fully covered by your insurance.

Lingering Pain

Many people that were involved in a severe accident find that they have lingering issues. Some of these issues may include spinal cord or brain injuries. You may even have suffered an amputation injury. This can seriously impact your life. You may not be able to hold a job because of your persistent pain. If you don’t have disability insurance, you may not be able to pay your bills. This can have long term consequences for you and your family.

Quality of Life

Injuries and PTSD can impact the quality of your life. Your relationships with others can suffer as a result of the accident. There may have been the death of a loved one because of the car accident. All of this trauma can impact your physiological wellbeing. It can make it more difficult for you to get out of the house. You may even find that you can’t do the other things that you love. The quality of your life has been greatly diminished as a result of the car accident.

Being involved in a car accident can have lasting implications for your health. You may need to hire an attorney to help you get your life back together as much as possible.
