Even the smallest car accident is a scary and unpleasant experience that can impact not only physical but mental health as well. Many people need medical treatment after an accident for muscle pain and joint sprains, but for some there can also be emotional stress and anxiety that persists and becomes a problem. Some people may have difficulty driving in a car again or even riding in a car with someone else after a traumatic accident. This can greatly hinder a person’s ability to take care of themselves, fulfill their work obligations, and return to life as normal.
If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident that was not your fault, the insurance company is generally required to cover your necessary medical treatment. You may be wondering, though, whether you should seek mental counseling after an accident and whether that mental therapy will be covered. If you are struggling with anxiety or emotional distress that is interfering with your daily life, you should know that counseling treatment can be covered by the at-fault insurance company. The best way to move forward is to seek out a certified mental health specialist without delay.
To make sure that you know all of your rights and get the best advice on how your treatment can be covered, you should also consult with an attorney. We are happy to answer your questions, you can reach out to Tien Law Firm today for a free consultation about your accident case.
