Health is More than What’s on the Surface
Though physical injuries do receive the most immediate attention after a car accident (as they should), the most damaging injuries can be the invisible ones. Whether you sustained any physical injuries or not, the mental and emotional trauma you experience following a car accident is legitimate and worthy of help. Too often, accident survivors can feel lost and alone as they deal with the emotional fallout of an accident. These emotional scars can be made worse by feeling as though your psychological trauma isn’t “enough” to justify seeking justice following an accident when, in reality, that just isn’t true. Your mental and emotional injuries are very real, and they should be both treated by a professional and taken into consideration if you choose to pursue legal action.
It can be difficult to take the step to get treatment if you were traumatized by a car accident, but it is highly advisable to seek out a professional who can help you process what happened. If you’re not sure about where to start, it’s a good idea to speak to your insurance provider about the mental health resources they cover. If you do not have insurance or your insurance does not cover mental health treatment, look into affordable options in your community. If you are already in counseling to help deal with trauma after being in an accident, remember that you can seek justice to cover these costs.
