A Louisville automobile accident can drastically affect your life, seemingly in an instant. Your minor injuries will heal over time, vehicles can be replaced, but whether you were injured or not the emotional ramifications of an accident can take a long time to heal.
After your Louisville automobile accident, you may experience any number of the following emotions, including:
- Mood swings
- Difficulty concentrating
You may also experience physical symptoms of emotional distress, which can include:
- Racing heartbeat
- Muscle tension
The emotional impact of your Louisville automobile accident will heal over time, but if you are still experiencing some symptoms after a few months, you may want to make an appointment with your health care provider to get a referral for a therapist, or consider a course of medication to help your emotional recovery.
These feelings are just as relevant to your Louisville Personal Injury Attorney as your physical trauma is, and can impact your case. Keep a journal and share your feelings with your Louisville Personal Injury Attorney (and your health care provider).
There are no “wrong” feelings following an accident, but do be aware if these symptoms increase in severity. Talk to your family and friends, join a support group, whatever you do, don’t go through this alone. Remember, unlike your physical injuries that are easy to see, your loved ones may not be aware of the emotional turmoil you’re experiencing.
