Perhaps you were navigating your daily, morning commute to work in or around New Orleans when another vehicle slammed into your bumper at a red light. The driver might have been one of hundreds of motorists in the state who take their eyes off the road to read text messages. Maybe your collision occurred because another driver failed to yield the right-of-way when merging on an interstate. Then again, you might be among those in Louisiana who suffered injuries after a collision in an intersection.
Whatever the details happen to be regarding the events that led to the crash, what you do and say, as well as where you seek support in the days and weeks that follow can have significant impact on your ability to recover, especially if your injuries were moderate to severe. The emotional trauma of being involved in a collision can't be overstated either. In fact, you might show signs of post-traumatic stress disorder, which is a common after-effect of motor vehicle collisions.
