Children in Auto Accidents

Children in Auto Accidents

If you have been involved in auto accidents with the kids, even a minor accident, you want to hear the results of this study. According to doctors at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, children involved in motor vehicle crashes may show signs of Acute Stress Disorder, even if they experienced only minor cuts and scratches. The study has far reaching implications. Each year, more than 1.5 million children in the United States are involved in accidents. According to the researchers, almost 25, that’s one out of four children hospitalized with injuries, as well as their parents, are known to experience Acute Stress Disorder, or ASD syndrome; such as re-experiencing the trauma through intrusive thoughts or images and sleep difficulties. Children most likely to exhibit such symptoms were those injured in the crash and those that received medical care.
