Motor vehicle accidents can be traumatic. You may witness catastrophic injuries or be badly injured yourself. This may lead to depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other mental health issues.
- Symptoms and Treatment
Motor vehicle accident victims suffering from a psychological injury may experience fatigue, low mood levels, mood swings, difficulty sleeping, difficulty keeping up with work or school, nightmares, or flashbacks.
Some symptoms of psychological injury coincide with symptoms of traumatic brain injuries, and it is possible to have both of these types of injuries concurrently. It is important to ensure that you have the correct diagnosis.
Treatment for psychological injuries may include counselling with a psychologist or psychiatrist, or medications to control symptoms.
