Mental and Emotional Suffering after a Car Accident

Car accidents are usually a sudden, violent event. This can result in emotional trauma for those involved. There can be a complex emotional and mental reaction to a car accident that can include spiritual or existential questions, grief and loss, and difficulty coping. These are all part of our psyches’ natural inclination to try to make sense of an unimaginable event.

Types of Emotional Suffering

You may have a general sense that you are not doing well since your accident, but it can be quite difficult for some people to have an outside perspective on what is happening with them. The following are just a few of the common ways that people might struggle emotionally after an accident:

  • Stress
  • Fear
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Humiliation
  • Embarrassment
  • Loss of dignity
  • Shock
  • Anger

If these feelings are ongoing and difficult for you to control, you might be suffering emotionally from the trauma of your accident. Sometimes these reactions to trauma manifest as diagnosable disorders, such as generalized anxiety, depression, or PTSD. However, you are the expert on your own emotional state and mental health. You know if you are suffering, and if you are, we want to help.
