PTSD after a work-related traffic accident

People are hurt while working in many ways, some of which may occur on the road. It is important to bear in mind that the consequences of work-related traffic collisions may extend beyond immediate financial challenges (hospital bills and lost wages) as well as injuries and physical pain. In some instances, a worker who is involved in a crash while carrying out his or her job responsibilities may develop post-traumatic stress disorder. PTSD can be particularly hard for injured workers and those they love, which is why this part of workplace accidents should not be overlooked.

Sometimes, the consequences of post-traumatic stress brought on by a job-related traffic collision can be especially damaging. For example, someone whose job regularly involves driving, (such as a trucker, a delivery driver, a taxi driver, etc.) may find that they are unable to continue working in their field. Sometimes, people think that PTSD only affects those who have served in combat, and while many people with PTSD have suffered in this manner, it can affect people who have experienced other types of traumatic incidents as well.

Depending on the nature of the accident and the unique details surrounding the collision, different courses of action may be advisable. Sometimes, a worker who was hurt on the road may pursue a workers’ comp claim, while others may file suit. Either way, doing everything possible to recover is critical.

A work-related crash can be incredibly hard, but victims of these accidents should not give up hope. Head to our injury page to read more on work-related accidents.
