Can Car Accidents Cause PTSD?
After a car accident, victims often have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Being diagnosed with this disorder can significantly impact the value of a resulting personal injury claim due to its potential long-term effects. High-speed impact car accidents or those that result in severe injuries tend to leave victims with PTSD that can alter their quality of life for months or years after the accident occurred. One of The Barnes Firm’s best car accident lawyers in Los Angeles provides valuable information that can influence your car accident claim if you’ve been in a car accident that resulted in PTSD.
