Many people experience anxiety following a car accident in Atlanta, then may have difficulty driving or riding in a vehicle. In extreme cases, anxiety can be debilitating and may decrease your quality of life, which is why there's an option to file a personal injury claim with your Atlanta injury law firm.

If you experience anxiety, rating your level of anxiety in a journal can be very helpful. You can share your rating with your doctor and/or therapist to get help with your serious condition.

A simple way to rate your anxiety level is to write down the thoughts or events that make you feel fear, worry, unease or panic. Then, on a scale of 1 to 10, rate the level of anxiety that you're experiencing.

The Zung Self-Rating Anxiety Scale can also help you rate your feelings of anxiety. Developed by psychologist William W.K. Zung, this scale consists of 20 questions used to gauge your anxiety rating. After answering the questions, you will receive a score on your anxiety level. A doctor or therapist can help you interpret your score and recommend treatment to alleviate the symptoms of anxiety.

If your anxiety was caused by a car accident in Atlanta, proving that you have the condition is crucial for your claim. By seeking help, you can help your personal injury claim and increase your chances of receiving compensation for anxiety.
