Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD is a side effect of any serious injury-causing accident. PTSD causes anxiety or flashbacks of a traumatic accident, which might affect your mental health. Every year about 8 million people will suffer from PTSD in the United states.
PTSD after a car accident is very common. Researchers said that about 30% of crash survivors suffer from it. Additionally, it is very important that people understand what it is and what the symptoms are and what their treatment options are. It is also vital that victims know their legal rights to no-fault benefits to pay for the outcome of their collision-related expenses. Here is what you should do if you are suffering from PTSD:
Washington D.C is a no-fault district. Regardless of who caused the accident, you are able to use your personal injury protection (PIP) or no-fault insurance to obtain compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages. It is usually better to bring a claim against the other driver if they were at fault because PIP does not cover pain and suffering. Lastly, you can only use your no-fault benefits and file a claim against the other driver under limited circumstances.
