Anxiety After Car Accident | Speak to a Car Accident Lawyer Today

In a study done by the Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine, 55% of car accident victims that were injured in a car crash showed signs of moderate-severe anxiety and negative mental health issues. Female car accident victims reported higher levels of anxiety and decline in mental health when compared to males that were involved in car accidents.

In the U.S., 2.3 million people are injured or disabled in car accidents every year. If someone is injured or disabled in a car crash that is caused by another driver, in most states the injured driver can recover compensation for their damages from the at fault driver’s insurance company. Car accidents range in severity and can cause minor or more severe injuries in victims such as whiplash, anxiety, broken bones, and more. It is crucial to consult a lawyer as soon as possible after a car accident to give your claim the best chance of recovering the most damages.

Personal Injury and Car Accident Laws

Anxiety can present itself in many different ways after a car accident. Some car accident victims won’t experience any anxiety at all post-crash, but other victims may experience crippling anxiety or even Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). An estimated 9% of car accident victims suffer from PTSD in the U.S.

Pain and suffering damages can vary based on the type of anxiety symptoms that are involved. For example, if someone experiences minor mental distress for two months after an accident and another person sustains severe, permanent anxiety from a car accident, they would each receive different amounts of compensation. The driver that experienced higher levels of anxiety would be eligible to recover a higher amount of pain and suffering damages than the driver with semi-permanent injuries because of the severity of their injuries.

Anxiety After Car Accident Lawsuit

If a driver hurts or kills someone else in a car accident, they could be liable to pay for the injured party’s damages. Pain and suffering damages generally require proof of physical injuries from a car accident, but in some states this isn’t required. Damages for anxiety after an accident are calculated by the at fault driver’s insurance company using a complex formula. The formula varies from company to company, but involves multiplying monetary damages such as medical bills, lost wages, property damage by a multiplier betweem 2-5 to reach a total damages settlement. If you are confused about what type of damages you should include in your demand letter to the other party’s insurance company, a lawyer can determine what damages you’re eligible to claim and help you write the demand letter.

In most states in the U.S., if a driver injures or kills another driver in an accident, they may be responsible for reimbursing the injured driver for the following damages:

  • Pain and suffering for any mental or emotional distress caused by the crash
  • Present and future medical bills that occurred because of the accident
  • Lost income from the accident because of anxiety, PTSD or other injuries after the car accident
  • Property damages caused by the accident and any rental car costs
  • Burial or funeral expenses if the injured driver passes away from their injuries from the accident and their family has to pay out-of-pocket for these expenses
  • Any other out-of-pocket expenses that occurred as a result of the accident

Certain states in the U.S. have a damages cap in place for pain and suffering damages, or “non-economic damages.” Damage caps vary in amount from state to state. In some states, if a person’s damages surpass a certain threshold, they can recover the excess amount of damages for their claim from the at-fault driver. In other states, once the damages cap is hit, the injured party cannot recover more compensation for their non-economic damages.
