Some people who have suffered injuries of some kind find that they can recover physically, but not mentally. It is very common to suffer flashbacks of the incident in which you were involved, however that incident may have occurred. For example, you might be involved in a car accident and keep seeing the other vehicle coming towards you. In another case, you may be injured at work and keep reliving that injury, causing flashbacks to occur.
Flashbacks are not always talked about in relation to injuries, but Accident Advice Helpline know that the mental side of things can potentially be just as bad if not worse than the physical side. In some situations, people have suffered long after their physical injuries have healed.
