Dealing with an emotional, physical or mental injury can be profoundly overwhelming and draining. However, after a vehicular accident, many victims are often left with extensive and sometimes irrevocable damage either to their physical health or their emotional or mental wellbeing. As a consequence, they must obtain professional treatment from therapists, trauma doctors and other health specialists, all of which costs great amounts of money. If you or someone you know has recently been affected by a personal injury incident in which the other party acted in a neglectful manner, we recommend reaching out to a personal injury attorney in Omaha, Nebraska.
Suffering Physical Damage Due to a Personal Injury Accident
While physical injuries are not exclusive to vehicular accidents, some of the people who are left with the most damaging and life-altering injuries are those involved in truck, motorcycle and car accidents. Surviving a motorcycle or truck accident is a miracle as most tend to be fatal, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that the victims of such crashes can end up facing paralysis, disfiguration, third degree burns, loss of limbs, and other extensive and irreparable physical damage. According to Therapydia, “20-50 million people are injured or disabled due to car accidents each year. Most people who have been in a car crash don’t immediately feel symptoms like pain or immobility. Typically, symptoms won’t be felt until days or even weeks after the accident [but] seeking treatment as soon as possible is important to ensure that these pain symptoms do not become chronic.”
Emotional Trauma Resulting from a Personal Injury Accident
Per the Anxiety & Depression Association of America, “Following an accident, many people can experience emotional distress. It’s normal that during the healing process, you may begin to notice signs of increased stress such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, anguish, fearfulness, issues with sleep, reoccurring nightmares about the crash and more. These intense emotions can lead to avoidance. Some may avoid having to drive again by avoiding going to work, appointments, events, school, etc. due to fear of getting into another accident. When symptoms start getting in the way of day to day functioning it may be a sign to take action.” Psychiatric and psychological treatments to control the symptoms of PTSD come at cost, but as personal injury attorneys we believe that if you were not responsible for the causation of the accident you shouldn’t be left to take on the financial burden on top off the emotional trauma you’re already dealing with as a result of the accident. This is why we help ensure that you obtain the monetary compensation you need and deserve to cover any damages you have sustained as a consequence of the accident.
