While the details about this accident are still pending, one of the most common results of Tennessee car crashes is psychological harm. It might even sound surprising, but a publication by the American Psychological Association found that motor vehicle accidents are considered the leading cause of posttraumatic stress disorder in the general population. Car accidents can also leave victims facing other mental hardships including anxiety and depression. Even for people who do not experience these injuries, it is still common to experience a rush of challenging emotions in the immediate aftermath of a car crash. Some of the most common emotions that people experience after car crashes include shock, anger, irritability, denial, agitation, guilt, worry, difficulty sleeping, and difficulty concentrating. While many people understand that it is possible to obtain compensation for things like physical injuries after a car crash, it is also possible to pursue compensation for the emotional hardships faced after an accident.
