Maritime accidents and mental trauma

There are a number of ways in which people make a living at sea, whether they work on a cruise ship or are employed in the fishing industry. Unfortunately, there are many things that can go wrong in these environments and job-related injuries occur far too often. Not only can these accidents result in a significant amount of physical pain and financial hardship, but they can also cause other difficulties which may be more difficult to detect, such as mental trauma. Those recovering from a maritime accident may suffer from depression or anxiety, and these mental challenges can be very debilitating.

In some instances, those involved in a maritime accident may develop post-traumatic stress disorder. In fact, the mental and emotional toll of a maritime accident may be so serious that someone is not able to continue working in a particular field, prompting them to look for a new line of work that pays less. These mental difficulties can create all sorts of other problems in someone's life, whether they lead to the breakdown of a marriage or changes to one's personality. Sometimes, mental trauma is not apparent right away, and people do not fully realize the mental toll of an accident until a later time.

If you were involved in a maritime accident and are struggling with mental trauma, please consider all of the resources that could be available to help you recover. We discuss many other topics that are related to the consequences of accidents at sea throughout our site.
