Waldorf Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Lawyers
You May Be Entitled to Compensation
Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a serious psychological condition, often associated with military service members who have returned from combat. However, PTSD can affect anyone who has been through a traumatic event, such as physical or sexual abuse/assault, an animal attack, motor vehicle accident, or any other catastrophic event.
PTSD is serious but, with proper treatment, those afflicted with the condition can utilize tools to manage their PTSD and move forward with their lives. However, the costs associated with treatment can be overwhelming for many people. At the Law Office of James E. Farmer, LLC, we believe that, when the accident that caused your PTSD resulted from someone else’s careless or reckless actions, you should not have to face these consequences on your own.
Understanding Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
PTSD is technically classified as a type of anxiety disorder. It has been known and studied within the medical community for many decades. Originally called “shell shock,” PTSD is most often associated with veterans who experienced active combat and other violence, however, PTSD can and does affect all types of people who have gone through traumatic experiences.
PTSD can develop in the weeks, months, or even years following a traumatic event (or series of events). Generally speaking, the trauma itself and the victim’s reaction can create changes in the brain that allow PTSD to develop.
Some of the most common symptoms of PTSD include:
- Re-living or re-experiencing the triggering event
- Avoidance of situations/places associated with the event
- Feelings of “numbness” or lack of emotions
- Hyper-vigilance, irritability, and/or being quick to anger
- Loss of interest in activities the victim once found enjoyable
- Difficulties sleeping (insomnia)
- Lack of concentration/inability to concentrate
- Panic attacks and general anxiety
- Inability to remember the event/trouble recalling details of the event
In order to cope with the extreme stress caused by these symptoms, PTSD sufferers may turn to harmful behaviors, such as excessive alcohol consumption and/or the use of illicit substances. They may struggle to obtain or keep a job and they may have trouble maintaining healthy relationships with family members, friends, and loved ones. In essence, PTSD can—and often does—affect every aspect of a person’s life.
