A traumatic experience, whether it is at work, on the road, or at home,
can result in a variety of different problems. When you are involved in
a car accident or any other similar situation, it is a good idea to work
with an Orlando personal injury attorney who can help get you the compensation
you deserve for expenses related to the psychological impact from the accident.
Constantly Remembering the Event
In some cases, the chaos of a traumatic experience can result in a constant
replay of the event in your mind. You might remember the event whenever
you face any type of trigger.
The triggers that may cause memories to surface will vary based on the
traumatic experience. For example, memories of a severe car accident may
be triggered by looking at a similar vehicle, getting into a car or even
traffic lights and signs that were around at the time of the accident.
Anxiety or Increased Emotional States
Anxiety develops in many individuals, but it can take a variety of forms.
Some individuals may develop an inability to sleep easily at night or
may feel irritated and easily annoyed throughout the day. Other individuals
can develop severe phobias, concerns or feelings of doom, even if the
situation seems to be unrelated to the accident.
Lack of Emotions
Although some individuals can develop emotional challenges in the way of
feeling irritated, easily worried or easily annoyed, others develop a
feeling of numbness. That lack of emotional feeling can be as disturbing
to your peace of mind as the overwhelming sense of fear, dread or any
other emotional states that are triggered by a traumatic experience.
When it comes to injuries that occur from an accident, some problems are
not immediately apparent. In many cases, an accident can cause post-traumatic
stress disorder or symptoms that are similar, which impacts your peace
of mind. An Orlando personal injury lawyer can help in the process of
developing a case based on your symptoms and the care that you require.
