The Psychological Impact of a Car Crash

Most of us have been involved in a minor fender bender at some point in our lives. We pull over, exchange information with the other party and go about our business.

Unfortunately, in some of these minor crashes there are soft tissue injuries such as sprains, strains and contusions for which medical treatment is required. In other cases injuries can be catastrophic such as multiple bone fractures, head trauma and spinal cord injuries. But what about the psychological impact of a car crash? You might expect to have some anxiety or fear of driving or being a passenger for a few weeks following the crash. But what if the anxiety doesn’t go away?

Being involved in a car crash can be very stressful. Not only are you coping with physical and emotional pain, but you must also deal with medical bills. If you go to the emergency room after the crash, you will likely receive several bills for that one emergency room visit. You will get a bill from the hospital, but also from the ER physician, the laboratory department, and the radiology department, to name a few. If you are admitted and consult with any type of specialty doctor, such as a neurologist or orthopedic doctor, or if surgery is required, you will receive additional bills for the cost of those services.
