As you know, being involved in a serious car accident can lead to a multitude of injuries. However, did you know that an auto accident can also lead to posttraumatic stress disorder?

You may be like a lot of Americans who have heard that term, but are unsure of what it really is. Mayoclinic.com has defined posttraumatic stress disorder as “a type of anxiety disorder that’s triggered by a traumatic event.”

Though, many car accident victims only suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder for only a short period of time, others are left to deal with the disorder for years. Imagine the impact that this can have on your family life, as well as your job performance.

As a car accident victim, you need to be aware of the symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder. The can include regular flashbacks of the event, nightmares, and can cause you to become angry and irritable, to name a few. For a complete list of symptoms, refer to the article titled Ten Signs That Could Indicate Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.
