It takes the body time to heal, and there are no guarantees of a full recovery, as every body is different in how it will react to certain injuries. What people do not expect, however, are the psychological effects that car accidents can have on them. Post-traumatic stress disorder is a relatively common problem among those who survive severe collisions, whether they occur in New Mexico or elsewhere.
