Emotional Effects of Car Accidents
Many people tend to focus on the physical trauma, both to themselves and their vehicles, which is associated with a car accident. However, the emotional or psychological effects of an automobile accident can also prove to be severe and long lasting. In fact, according to a study conducted by British researcher Richard Mayou, nearly one-third of people are still suffering from a wide range of psychological trauma from a car accident one year after the event.
The emotional effects of a car accident can be hard to understand and overcome as it may take years of therapy before a person is truly recovered. At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. our Lake Geneva car accident lawyers will work diligently to help you seek financial compensation for emotional trauma in addition to your physical concerns if you have been hurt in an accident caused by another.

Common Emotional Side Effects
Regardless of whether or not a person was physically injured in a car accident, they can suffer from a host of emotional side effects in the aftermath of their accident, including:
- Increased continual stress
- Fear of driving
- Panic attacks
- Loss of self-esteem
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
Unfortunately, many people do not seek treatment for their psychological health, as they believe the treatment may not be covered and will be expensive. A successful civil lawsuit can help one to obtain the financial resources that they will need to pay for treatment without subjecting them to additional financial burdens.
