The Impact of Trauma on Your Peace of Mind

Posted By Todd Miner Law || Jan 22, 2015

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.
