Side Effects from Personal Injury

If you have ever been in an accident, bitten by a dog, hit by a car, or had a mistake during surgery, it is probably an incident you would not easily forget. And isn't this the problem? Getting bad things out of our minds is one of the things that lead us down troubled roads and poor mental health.

While a person may be able to fully recover from their neck injury from when that semi hit them, getting over the fear of driving on the highway next to other semis might take longer to get over. If you are bit by a dog, you may be afraid of dogs and avoid them at any chance you get. This is a natural instinct to a traumatic event, but it is a symptom of more serious side effects that may arise.

Some serious side effect that can arise from personal injury accidents can include:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Severe Depression
  • Downward spiraling of mental and physical health

If a person you know has become withdrawn after a serious accident and is acting depressed and unlike their regular self, you should confront them and take them to a doctor. It is estimated that of all personal injury victims, more than twenty percent experience adverse mental symptoms that cannot be treated without the help of a doctor.
