Can I claim PTSD after a car accident?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can affect anyone who suffers from a traumatic event, such as a car crash. During such a traumatic event, a victim may undergo a stress-related reaction or feel they have no control over what is happening. If those feelings or reactions do not subside or continue disrupt someone's life, it is possible they suffer from PTSD.

Although the condition must be diagnosed by a healthcare professional, some common symptoms include reliving the event, negative changes in beliefs and feelings, concentration problems, trouble sleeping, amongst others. When injured victims have developed PTSD due to a crash, they should seek help from a professional to obtain appropriate treatment.

Anyone involved in a motor vehicle collision that develops PTSD as a result of another's negligent driving may be entitled to relief from the at-fault party. Oftentimes, PTSD can affect an individual's ability to return to work and incur significant medical expenses as a result of their necessary treatment. The injured victim may be entitled to receive payment for medical expenses and necessary therapies. The victim may also be entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering or mental anguish it has caused them.
