A drunk driver car accident can leave destruction, injury, and tragedy in its wake, but not all of the damage done by a serious car accident caused by a drunk driver is visible. Some of it affects us in the place in which we are most vulnerable – our minds. If you have been involved in a serious accident that was caused by a drunk or otherwise negligent driver, reach out to a lawyer in Atlanta, GA who can help you reclaim your life.  

Car accidents can be particularly traumatic for children. Research has demonstrated that anywhere between 15% and 25% of children who are in car accidents develop symptoms of depression, although some don’t manifest for months.

However, a study published by the The Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health indicated that children who received some form of intervention within the first week or so after a serious car accident were less likely to develop depressive symptoms and behavioral issues within the next 6 months.

However, psychological care can come at a high financial cost, particularly for children who may need more care than adult counterparts.

To get the financial compensation from the driver who was responsible for your accident, speak with car accident attorney in Atlanta who can help.
