When to seek psychological help after a road accident

Dealing with the fallout after a road accident can be stressful, and there are bound to be certain emotional struggles during the time that you are recovering both physically and financially from your accident and injuries.

However, you should seek psychiatric help after your accident if you feel that you are unable to make a full recovery on your own, and that you are in danger of becoming depressed or suffering from an anxiety disorder as the result of your accident.

One of the ways you can find closure from your accident is to look into whiplash injury claims in Sheffield and think about making a claim for compensation from the driver at fault in your accident. A whiplash injury can last a long time and cause you financial difficulty as well as physical problems, and in this case whiplash injury claims in Sheffield may help you to feel some form of vindication for what you have suffered.

If some time has passed since your accident, you have gone ahead with whiplash injury claims in Sheffield and still feel no better, it may be time to consider seeing your GP and asking for emotional support. The signs that you should be looking into this include:

Symptoms persisting for a long time

Depending on how bad your accident was, it can take weeks or even months for you to feel ‘back to normal’ after your accident. However, this does come with a time limit, and after several months of struggling psychologically with the impact of your accident, it may be time to seek help.

Difficulty functioning in day to day life

If you are struggling to move on with your life, attend work or school and deal with the normal struggles of your everyday life, you should consider seeing a doctor about your mental state as soon as possible. In many cases, these symptoms may get worse if you leave the for too long, and being unable to cope with your everyday life can lead to further issues which you will then feel unable to deal with as well.

Turning to drink or drugs

Many people dealing with a trauma will turn to alcohol or drugs in order to cope with how they feel after the accident. Although this can be excused for a few days or weeks, this could turn into a debilitating problem if not dealt with sooner rather than later.
