Accident Trauma

Accident traumaWhether it is a plane, train, or automobile accident, some people are seriously affected after an accident and suffer from trauma. While centered around a particular accident, the effects of this type of trauma can last months or years after the event that caused its onset. There are many symptoms that will appear, including physical signs and those that are more emotional. Because some people may have trouble getting to treatment because of a fear of transportation, we offer online therapy for accident trauma here at GoMentor.com. This is helpful for many people. We care about getting people the help they need to overcome accident trauma.

Causes of Accident Trauma 

As suggested by the name, this type of trauma comes about as the result of a serious, life-threatening accident. This could be a car crash, a wreck in a plane, or one of many other types of accidents. The intense shock of the accident may trigger chemical changes in the brain that result in the symptoms of trauma appearing. When a person ignores the problem, hoping it will go away, it usually ends up getting worse. This is why looking for the symptoms is important.

Symptoms and Dangers of Accident Trauma 

Some people may go too far extremes after an accident, changing their lifestyle or habits. For example, people in a serious car accident may be hesitant to get in a car. When they do, it may cause extreme anxiety or a panic attack. A constant fear centered around the accident is also common for people suffering from accident trauma. As with other types of trauma, some people have difficulties sleeping as well. Many of the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder may appear as well. If left untreated, PTSD or other serious mental disorders may develop as a result of the accident. A person's social and work life may be affected as well because of fears that arise.

Typical signs of a person with trauma caused by an accident:

  • Memory loss
  • Life changes centered around cause of accident
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Panic attacks
  • Fearfulness
