Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

PTSD AccidentOftentimes those who have been to war suffer from PTSD. But it is not only combat veterans that suffer from PTSD. Many times it can be a horrific or terrifying accident that can bring about this condition. Usually, the more severe the accident, the more likely it is that PTSD can and will result.

Most personal injury accidents don’t result in substantial mental trauma. However, there are accidents that do leave lasting mental and psychological damage on a victim. PTSD can happen to someone that directly experiences trauma, but can also happen to anyone that witnesses someone else experience trauma.

An example of such damage is post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. Sometimes dealing with the psychological challenges brought about by an accident can be more challenging than dealing with the physical injuries that were suffered. A Boston PTSD accident lawyer, I have helped many such people collect fair compensation for this devastating injury following an accident. This is a very serious and debilitating condition that many innocent people suffer from.

What is PTSD?

Post-traumatic stress disorder is an anxiety disorder brought about by a terrifying event. Any type of terrifying event can cause PTSD. Sometimes it is experienced immediately after the event, and sometimes its onset is delayed. It can happen to anyone at any age. It happens to women more often than men, and about 7-8% of the population experience this. Its symptoms include flashbacks, nightmares, nausea, and trembling.

PTSD Treatment includes psychotherapy, medication, or both in conjunction. Sometimes PTSF can be healed in a brief amount of time, while other times it can take years to fully and adequately address. Treatment can sometimes last only a brief time, but can also last an entire lifetime. Oftentimes medication becomes necessary for the victim to take as part of a treatment regimen.

What Types of Personal Injury Accidents Cause PTSD?

In the world of personal injury law, any kind of accident can cause PTSD. Typically the more devastating the accident, the more likely it is that PTSD may develop.

For example, if someone is involved in a horrific motor vehicle accident, that person may develop PTSD. Also, if someone is savagely bitten and attacked by a dog, that person may develop PTSD. The more traumatic the accident, the more likely it is that PTSD will develop.
