Psychological Injuries: Common After Car Accidents
A little known fact about car accidents is that they almost always have a psychological component for those involved. From concussions and organic brain injuries caused by physical trauma to PTSD and driving anxiety caused by mental trauma, most motor vehicle accident victims deal with some type of psychological issue.
