Panic disorders can arise from traumatic car accidents

One of the most common causes of serious injuries in the United States is being involved in a car accident. Car accidents can lead to a wide range of physical injuries, some of the most serious being spinal cord injuries and brain damage. However, what is often overlooked is the psychological damage that car accidents can cause.

Panic disorders and panic attacks are relatively common forms of anxiety in the general public. While it is common for people to suffer from such conditions without any obvious reason, they can be brought on after a traumatic event.

Those with no previous history of a panic disorder may start experiencing such symptoms after they were involved in a car accident. In this situation, they will need to seek professional guidance to start their journey in recovering fully.

What is a panic disorder?

A panic disorder is a broad term to describe the condition of a person who is suffering from frequent and unexpected panic attacks. Sufferers may also exhibit avoidance, meaning that they prevent themselves from going to certain places where they easily experience a panic attack. This can mean that their life becomes very limited, and they may suffer from constant states of fear and worry.

Can I make a claim due to my panic disorder?

It is important that you acknowledge the emotional damages that you have suffered as a result of being involved in a car accident. It is common for car accident victims to focus on the ways that they have been injured physically rather than emotionally. This can cause them to lose out on gaining the monetary damages that they deserve.

When making a car accident claim for damages, you should take the time to reflect on the ways that your life has changed since the incident. All negative changes to your emotional, physical and financial state can count as damages, and all treatment that you seek should be covered by your claim.

Make sure that you take the time to understand the law in Texas when considering making a car accident claim. Having legal knowledge can empower you to take the right actions and to get the damages that you deserve.
