Post-traumatic stress disorder is a typical response to consequences of road accidents. Despite the existence of a post-traumatic theory, psychological manifestations in people who suffered road accidents with various consequences for their life and health are still poorly studied. In the context of a theory of stress, a psychological trauma is considered to be a special form of general response to external factors, including road accidents. Traumatic stress is quite intense and subjects psychological, physiological and adaptive capabilities of a person to additional load, destroys psychological defenses, causes anxiety and often results in deterioration of somatic health.
