A car accident victim may experience a range of worrisome thoughts and emotions that could last even after the car has been repaired, and the physical wounds have healed. It is not uncommon for crash survivors to be emotionally traumatized by the accident. Many survivors report suffering from stress, insomnia, nightmares, and even bouts of depression.  Many victims also report phobias such as being unable to drive their cars.  If left untreated, this phobia may worsen and in extreme cases render the patient housebound. Some patients may also develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after a car crash.  A proper diagnosis is essential to ensure the proper treatment and well- being of the patient.

"Let me guess.  The insurance company already tried to rip you off with respect to the value of your vehicle and now you're wondering if you need an experienced Richmond Personal Injury Attorney to take over the handling of your case."
