Emotional Trauma.

Ask anyone who has gone through a traumatic experience, near-death experiences can have a deep impact on your life and cause on-going emotional trauma and mental suffering.  San Diego is a bright and sunny place, until you experience an accident that turns your world dark.  It can take awhile for your brain to get over it and feel safe again.  You may often play frightening memories in your head or sense danger around every corner.  But treatment and support from family and friends can speed your recovery from emotional trauma.

If your emotional trauma came after an automobile accident that you didn’t cause, you should think about meeting with an experienced personal injury lawyer in San Diego.

  • Being startled easily
  • Racing heartbeat
  • Aches and pains
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Edginess and agitation
