Psychological injuries and your serious road accident injury in Suffolk claim
A road traffic accident is a traumatic event. It may be the first time that you have ever been involved in an accident in your entire life. It is understandable that it may have an effect on your psychological well-being.
Some people feel very anxious after a road traffic accident. The anxiety may be specific – you may have a particular fear of getting back in a car. On the other hand – it can be much more general. You may feel anxious most of the time.
Other people feel depressed after a road traffic accident and this may last after the physical injuries have healed. The psychological symptoms can affect your sleep patterns and you may find it difficult to do the things that you used to enjoy. For some people, it is very difficult to get their life back on track and they cannot return to work.
