    The long term effects of PTSD


    Are you suffering the long term effects of PTSD?

    As someone who has been involved in a serious accident, or has witnessed a serious accident, you may have been left to deal with the long term effects of PTSD. While some might consider the condition to be nothing to worry about, for those suffering from the condition it can be debilitating and life changing.

    At Accident Advice Helpline we understand the seriousness of the long term effects of PTSD and can help you secure compensation if you have been left to suffer from the condition after an accident. We have helped many PTSD sufferers since our inception back in 2000.

    Your life is not the same

    Before your accident you will have been an outgoing, happy individual who had lots of friends and enjoyed nothing more than socialising with friends and family. After the accident, however, it will have seemed as though your life has been turned inside out.

    Many suffers of PTSD have experienced feelings of dread, anxiety, depression and had suicidal tendencies. A large number have self-harmed as a way of releasing their anxiety while others have tried to take their own lives.

    Your accident won’t have been your fault but the effects of it will have to be dealt with by you, and most likely you alone. While your family and friends will try to understand, it will be difficult for them to empathise with what you are going through.

    PTSD sufferers often need the help of a psychologist or counsellor who can talk through their thoughts and feelings and help them readjust to their life in the aftermath of an accident. While this is a good thing, these services cost money and can result in lost time at work.

    For some sufferers, it may prove impossible for them to even return to work after their accident because of their emotional state. While the physical wounds may heal well, the emotional scars can remain raw for a long time.
