Are you suffering from PTSD or anxiety after a car accident?

A car accident can leave emotional scars just as impactful as physical injuries, with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety often emerging in the aftermath of an accident.

PTSD can develop after a traumatic event, such as a car accident, where individuals experience intense fear, helplessness, or horror. Anxiety, a common symptom associated with PTSD, can show as heightened nervousness, restlessness, and persistent worry.

Symptoms of PTSD and anxiety after a car accident may include flashbacks, nightmares, avoidance of reminders, irritability, and difficulty concentrating. These symptoms can surface immediately or manifest over time, impacting daily life and overall well-being.
