After a serious drunk driver car accident, you may develop injuries that aren’t noticeable to the naked eye. Anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder; these are all possible psychological injuries that can be prompted by a severe accident. If you’ve been injured and are feeling less than yourself, speak to a lawyer in Atlanta GA who can help.

There are 3 different types of depression disorders that you or your loved one can develop after a drunk driver car accident
. The signs of depression vary based on the type of disorder that manifests, so it's useful to be able to differentiate between the 3 if you suspect that you or your loved one has developed a depressive disorder following a serious accident.

The 3 types of major depression are:
  • depression with psychotic features, which is hallmarked by depressed experiences and isolation from reality, delusions, or hallucinations;
  • depression with melancholic features, which is more common in those who are genetically predisposed towards depressive moods; and
  • depression with atypical features, in which most sufferers can experience improved mood from positive experiences in their environment. 

If you have been injured and are suffering from depression after a serious accident caused by a drunk driver, a car accident attorney in Atlanta may be able to help you recoup the damages and financial compensation you need to treat your injuries – all of them.
