When you think of injuries from a Kansas City car crash, you may think of common car accident injuries like broken arms and legs, brain injuries, or facial injuries.  Sometimes one of the lesser-known car crash injuries can be some of the most devastating.  If you have been the victim of a car crash, get your copy of Don’t Wreck Your Injury Claim.  The book is free and contains valuable information for Kansas City car crash victims.

Emotional injuries caused by post-traumatic stress disorder or even traumatic brain injury can bring on symptoms that may not even be recognized as stemming from the accident.  Unlike cuts and scrapes and broken bones that are easily identified, emotional wounds are not as easily seen and attributed to a car crash.

The symptoms of emotional injuries can present themselves in many ways.  These symptoms can be difficult to pin down.  Anxiety, changes in personality, difficulty sleeping, and other issues cause problems in all areas of life.  In fact, some emotional injuries can impair the victim’s ability to work, maintain relationships, and otherwise function in daily life. 

Other indications of an emotional injury can include:

  1.  Emotionally charged reactions to memories of the car crash
  2. Feeling of high anxiety in vehicles
  3. Insomnia
  4. Difficulty calming down or being still
  5. Loss of appetite
  6. Self-medicating through substance abuse
  7. Reactions to loud noises
  8. Withdrawal from family and friends
  9. Changes in temper
  10. Uncharacteristic outburst
  11. Depression

Emotional injuries can be devastating, causing life altering changes to the rest of your life.  Treatments for the injuries are required in order to get back to life as normal.  Treatments can be lengthy and quite costly.
