What you need to know about PTSD and car accidents

Posted on July 4, 2015 11:14 am under Car Accidents

An individual can get post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) a few weeks or months after being exposed to a traumatic ordeal, such as a car accident. In the U.S., it is estimated that approximately 5.2 million people, or roughly 3.6% of the adult population, are suffering from this condition.

PTSD can profoundly impact the way a person lives. People with PTSD may find that they are not able to do things they previously did with ease. Some people with this condition find it hard to sustain steady personal and social relationships, while others may find it difficult to earn a living. Some can even have suicidal thoughts that may endanger their lives.
