Sometimes, such accidents alter the life of the victims drastically. If they have been physically affected by the accident, like rendered disabled or confined to a wheelchair, they find it even more difficult to deal with it. If a life is lost, it weighs a heavy burden on the shoulders of the survivors, with extreme emotions of anger, irritability, fear, guilt, etc. They also exhibit symptoms like sleep problems, weight changes, loss of appetite, social withdrawal, excessive crying, etc. Remember that it is difficult, but not impossible to get over post-accident depression.
