Being involved in an accident, whether it is a road traffic accident, an accident at work or a trip or fall is upsetting and very stressful. You may find that you are in shock for some time afterwards and that you find it hard to come to terms with what has happened.
However, you may find that you are suffering from psychological injuries as a result of your accident, in addition to any physical injuries you have.
What Are Psychological Injuries?
There are many things which can affect you psychologically after an accident, including:
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD
- Adjustment Disorder
In addition to these conditions, there may other problems you face such as travel anxiety, insomnia and fear of going to the scene of your accident.
You may feel that you are alone in facing these types of injuries, but at least 25% of people suffer some sort of psychological injury following a traumatic accident.
