Sometimes, the difficulties we face after a personal injury, such as a car accident, are not purely physical. Sometimes, victims of accidents also experience psychological distress. For example, they may experience recurring nightmares related the accident, avoid areas where the accident took place, and/or experience a general onset of depression or anxiety. These feelings can interfere with daily life and can lead to isolation from family members and friends. It is important to seek medical advice in these situations in order to come up with a treatment plan and strategies to manage these feelings.
