Being involved in a motor vehicle accident (MVA) can lead to many significant changes in your life. While the physical effects are easy to identify, the psychological effects are not as visible and are often neglected and left untreated. This is unfortunate because the symptoms that you may experience can be significantly reduced with support, guidance and specific psychological treatment.
Some of the psychological changes or symptoms that may arise after you have been in an automobile accident include:
- Feeling numb
- Disturbing recollections of the event
- Anxiety or avoidance regarding vehicles or the accident site
- Withdrawal from events you previously enjoyed
- Low libido and interest in intimacy
- Feeling constantly uneasy
- Worries about the future
- Angry outbursts
- Isolating yourself
Many people are unaware that their automobile insurance often covers psychological rehabilitation in addition to physical rehabilitation, without a referral from their doctor.
