In the United States, two to three million people are injured in automobile accidents yearly. Stress, rage, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are common reactions to automotive accidents’ financial, physical, and emotional costs.
The victim’s suffering is compounded by the fact that they may have to spend weeks in the hospital having extensive medical care. Awful injuries, emotional upheaval, and mounting financial commitments don’t help matters.
