If you’ve been in a car that was involved in a police pursuit crash, or if a vehicle involved in a police pursuit crashed into you or your family member, it’s likely that you’ve experienced lasting physical and emotional effects following the incident. Whether you were at fault and running from the police or you were an innocent victim, it can be hard to figure out how to go on after a traumatic incident like a police car pursuit crash.
After being involved in a police car pursuit crash, it’s possible that you’ll deal with far-reaching emotions that can make it hard to get through your day-to-day life. You may experience flashbacks, nightmares, insomnia, anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues that can affect your job and your relationships. A qualified counselor can help you learn more about how the incident affected your mental health, and can work with you to develop a treatment plan that supports your recovery.
Counseling can help with the lasting emotional effects that can follow a police pursuit car crash, but appointments can get expensive. This is especially true if you don’t have health insurance, or if your health insurance coverage does not include mental health care.
Of course, it’s also likely that you’ll experience lasting physical effects following a car crash due to a police car pursuit. After car accidents, many people experience head injuries (such as concussions) that can cause problems months or years into the future. With head injuries, it’s possible that victims will not even understand the scope of the problem until lifelong symptoms begin to set in.
You may also experience problems that cause you lasting pain, such as joint issues, back problems, and more. While some of these injuries require immediate treatment, others may require treatment that goes on long after the incident occurred. For example, you may need physical therapy to help you regain lost mobility following an accident, or you may need to have a cosmetic procedure to help get your body back to normal after a scar-causing injury has healed.
