Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

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 Farmer & Klopfer, 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.


To learn more about how our Waldorf PTSD lawyers can help you seek justice and a fair recovery, call (301) 265-2220. Your initial consultation is completely free and confidential. 


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.

  • Kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable

    “I couldn’t be happier with the service I received from this law firm. I felt comfortable from the minute I first walked through the door. I had less than two weeks before the expiration of my personal injury filing date and was overwhelmed. My first appointment was with Elizabeth who took my huge stack of papers with a smile and said, “Let me take care of this for you.” Although all of the staff that I encountered were wonderful, my main experience was with Mr. Farmer and Elizabeth who were both kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable. My case was handled professionally and in a timely fashion. My case was recently concluded and I am very happy with the outcome and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to my friends and family in the future. Need a good law firm, no need to look further.”
