Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can easily set in after a catastrophic South Dakota car accident. If this has happened to you or a loved one, we strongly urge that you get professional help and contact a lawyer to attempt to recover damages for related costs.

PTSD, the psychological condition well known for its effect on soldiers who have returned from battle, is a natural extension of any trauma that throws someone's world into chaos. PTSD is the result of feeling as though your safety can never be guaranteed or taken for granted again.

PTSD can set in after a wide range of traumatic events. These include, but are certainly not limited to:

  • Plane crashes
  • Car accidents
  • Natural disasters
  • Sudden death of a loved one
  • Kidnapping
  • Sexual abuse

For those suffering from PTSD after a car accident, the experience of worry, fear, and depression can seem overwhelming. The accident may play continually in your head, and it may feel like the world will never be safe and secure again. These experiences can have serious consequences in your professional and personal lives.

However, the good news is that PTSD can be treated. There is no way that you can ever forget about the initial event, as it will likely stick with you forever, but you can integrate the experience. With time and treatment, the fear and overall effect will lessen, allowing you to get on with your life.
