Can I get Pain and Suffering – Emotional damage – Trauma PTSD – For My Car Being a Lemon

Few people do not enjoy the thrill of purchasing a brand-new car. The smell of a new car, the newness of it and knowing that you are the first person to “break it in,” are all part of the epitome of a new car experience. But there is a definite downside to buying a new car. This is especially true, when the car turns out to be a lemon vehicle. The issue of a car being defective, not working properly and creating stress for the owner may bring up emotional damage that can trigger the owner to have or develop post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD.

What Is PTSD?

Post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD is a mental condition that affects individuals, who have lived through some type of trauma and are triggered by everyday events to relive that trauma again. The diagnosis of PTSD is made by a medical doctor. Many people who have PTSD have had to take time off of work and have severe emotional issues as a result of past trauma experiences.

Individuals who suffer from PTSD also experience many different debilitating symptoms in their daily life, that can serve to reduce their quality of life. These symptoms can include:

  • Triggering and recurrent memories of a past traumatic and stressful event
  • Reliving the traumatic event as if it is happening now
  • Flashbacks of a prior traumatic and stressful event
  • Upsetting dreams regarding a past traumatic event
  • Severe emotional distress over a past traumatic event
  • Physical reactions to stressful events that remind you of a past traumatic event
  • Nausea
  • Shaking
  • Feeling overwhelmed
  • Unable to move
  • Brain fog
  • Feeling helpless about the future
  • Memory issues
  • Negative thoughts
  • Forgetfulness
  • Lack of interest in former fun activities
  • Difficulty finding positive emotions
  • Feeling down
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Trouble concentrating on daily tasks
  • Irritability
  • Angry outbursts
  • Aggressive behaviors
  • Overwhelming guilt
  • Feelings of unfounded shame
  • Re-enacting traumatic events in your head
  • Frightening dreams and night terrors
  • Feeling numb emotionally
  • Feeling detached from life
  • Being easily startled
  • Feeling frightened or afraid all the time
  • Using self-destructive behaviors to self-soothe
  • Feeling detached from close relationships

The stress of having to have your car put into the shop for repairs on a manufacturer’s defect can possibly be the reason for triggering emotions related to PTSD. If this is the case, then the car having a manufacturer’s defect can trigger PTSD in someone who may have been previously diagnosed with this disorder.
