Emotional Trauma Sustained in a Rollover Accident

In a rollover accident, a driver loses complete control of the vehicle, sometimes causing the vehicle to roll repeatedly. Not only can this cause extensive physical injuries, but it can also cause severe and debilitating emotional or psychological trauma. Sadly, as our team at the Willis Law Firm sees too often, many rollover accident victims suffer from a great deal of emotional trauma after being involved in an accident. Depending on the accident and the person, in addition to other factors, the type of emotional trauma a victim suffers from after a rollover can vary substantially.

Distressing Forms of Emotional Trauma Caused by Rollover Accidents

Emotional trauma will manifest in different ways, as every person reacts differently to a traumatic situation. However, some of the more common manifestations of emotional trauma include:

  • Unpredictable mood swings
  • Nightmares
  • Fear / paranoia
  • Depression
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Feeling guilty
  • Loss of self-worth
  • Resistance toward social interaction

These side effects of emotional trauma can dramatically change a person’s life, causing them to need extensive therapy and help to overcome the consequences.

Unfortunately, many people who have emotional trauma after a rollover accident do not have the finances to afford the care they need after a rollover accident. However, when these accidents are the fault of another driver or a car manufacturer, it might actually be that party’s responsibility to pay for the costs of the accident.
