Accidents with large trucks and their causes

Accidents with large trucks are as common on the roads of West Virginia as they are in the rest of America. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration records statistics on the number of fatalities that occur every year as a result of accidents involving large commercial vehicles, and they indicate that the danger is real and increasing.

Avoiding whiplash injuries

West Virginia drivers might know that rear-end collisions could cause whiplash injuries to vehicle occupants. As a result, victims might experience chronic or short-term pain that interferes with work and routine tasks. However, understanding the mechanics and necessary response to a hyperextension injury may help.

Is post-traumatic stress disorder possible after a car accident?

In a word, yes. West Virginia residents who are involved in car accidents might respond with feelings such as fear, anxiety and anger. These feelings usually dissipate as time passes and people return to their normal activities. However, for some, the trauma of an accident may become all-consuming and long-term to such a degree that it inhibits their ability to fully participate in life going forward. In such a case, the victim may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
