How Victims of Sarasota Auto Accidents Suffer from PTSD
As Robin sat at the traffic light thinking about her blessed life—listening to her two kids in the back seat—she was suddenly jolted. Her car was launched forward, her children began crying, and she felt a sharp pain. She immediately turned her attention on her kids. She knew that if she had been hurt that they may have suffered worse injuries. While they all lived and received medical attention for their injuries, Robin kept thinking constantly about the crash. Not only was the collision consuming her waking thoughts, she also suffered bad dreams about the wreck, she couldn’t sleep very well, she was anxious, and she had a difficult time driving. What Robin experienced is posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Sadly, many victims of Sarasota auto accidents suffer from PTSD, which can flat-out ruin their lives in the following ways:
- Personal relationships – Victims may not be the same again, as they have trouble socializing, communicating their thoughts, and feeling understood following a crash. They also tend to distance themselves from others while they aren’t feeling like themselves.
- Health – Victims’ health often suffers following a collision due to their anxiety, worry, and fear. Also victims cannot get the proper rest they need since they have trouble sleeping due to nightmares relating to the crash.
- Job performance – Victims typically have a difficult time concentrating and working after an accident, which can lead to a slump in job performance.
Many sufferers of PTSD see serious downturns, as they often are left feeling anxious, fearful, and worried about their future.
