What Is PTSD?
PTSD or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a condition that afflicts victims of traumatic events including rape or car-accidents. It is prevalent in veterans who have experienced combat situations. Victims feel a sense of fear, helplessness or horror and often continue to relive the event that caused the initial trauma.
What Are Symptoms of PTSD?
Symptoms of PTSD include flashbacks, panic attacks, hyper-vigilance, anger and emotional outbursts. Victims feel fear, dread, helplessness and horror that causes them to react unpredictably or violently in response to seemingly harmless situations. They may have exaggerated responses to startling events, suffer from nightmares, or need to avoid situations that are similar to that of the accident. Many victims will also suffer memory loss of the event.
Is There Treatment for PTSD?
PTSD can be diagnosed with a relative degree of accuracy. After PTSD is diagnosed, there are treatment options available. Our firm will work with a team of experts who can help you and your family seek the appropriate treatment necessary after suffering a traumatic accident or injury. Treatment options include psychotropic medications and therapy. We work on representing you and your family’s interests throughout the legal process.
Obtaining Compensation in a PTSD Case
Your financial recovery after a PTSD injury depends significantly on our ability to demonstrate how the victim has changed because of the accident. We will take the time with both the victim and the family to be able to show the jury that the harm suffered is real and that the needed financial recovery is justified.
