Can PTSD occur as the result of a car accident?

Maryland residents may wonder if it is possible to develop post-traumatic stress after a car accident. The fact is that it can be common for an individual to develop symptoms of this medical condition whenever a traumatic event takes place. The emotional experiences of post-traumatic stress can often exaggerate the normal feelings that occur after a car accident, including shock that the event happened, difficulty accepting that it really did take place, anger about the situation or fear that it may happen again. Replaying the memories over and over again may also be an indicator that PTSD has developed.

On distracted driving

As many Maryland residents have already learned, distracted driving is a growing danger on the roads of America. The high-technology world of instant text and voice communication that we live in today has caused unforeseen side effects to those who operate motor vehicles and utilize the highways or streets. Even pedestrians and bicyclists are at greater risk than ever before because of the increasing prevalence of distracted driving.

Pedestrian critically injured by hit-and-run driver

On Nov. 23, a 24-year-old man in Maryland was injured after being struck by a hit-and-run driver. At the time of the accident, the victim and a friend were walking along the side of westbound Obrecht Road. At around 2:30 a.m., a 1996 Chevrolet Impala hit the victim from behind. Police say the driver of the Impala then continued to travel west without stopping. As is common with many car accidents, charges against the driver are pending review by the State Attorney's Office.

Fractures and broken bones result from bizarre police chase

In the course of the accident, three police officers and one person on a scooter were injured, with at least one suffering fractures and broken bones. The police were attempting to stop the man driving the scooter when, somehow, the two vehicles collided. The details of exactly how the collision occurred were not immediately clear.
