Dealing with emotions after a drunk driving accident
In our previous post, we discussed the death rate of drunk driving accidents in Alabama. That post was a real wake-up call for some people and a source of sadness for others. No matter which side of the fence you are on, the fact is that drunk driving accidents are devastating — even when there aren’t any deaths. We understand how devastating these accidents can be and are here to help victims take action.
Victums of Drunk Driving Accidents
Victims who survive drunk driving accidents can face a variety of injuries. The physical injuries are usually painful, but the emotional and mental trauma can often be even worse. In some cases, the victim might suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. This can make it difficult for them to handle normal life events, such as riding in a car. They might be too nervous to drive after the accident. As you can imagine, PTSD can impact every area of their life.
Another way that a drunk driving accident can impact lives is through survivor’s guilt. If you were involved in a drunk driving accident that claimed the life of a friend or loved one, you might feel guilty that you survived. We know that can also have a profound impact on the rest of your life.
