By Martins Straume Last updated Apr 17, 2020 0 Share Even a minor car accident can be a traumatic event for the people involved, and the potential trauma only becomes greater with the severity of the accident. There are different kinds of trauma when it comes to car accidents. There is the emotional trauma as the shock of the accident can have devastating psychological effects. There is also the financial trauma as you will likely be worried about medical expenses, repair bills, and other expenses caused by the accident. However, the most profound and immediate type of trauma is the physical. A car accident can cause serious and debilitating injuries to the driver and to any passengers in the vehicle. Even what seems like a minor fender-bender can cause an injury.
