Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a type of injury that may develop after you have been through an extremely traumatic event in which you were in serious physical danger. Examples can include car accidents, military combat, and violent assaults causing personal injuries or psychological injuries. Recent studies show that between 25-33% of people in car accidents suffer some level of PTSD.

Symptoms of PTSD

These are all normal reactions to experiencing trauma, but they are considered PTSD when they don’t lessen or go away after one month.

  • Re-experiencing the original trauma(s) through flashbacks or nightmares
  • Avoidance of thoughts or people, places and things associated with the trauma
  • Negative changes in mood such as emotional numbness, hopelessness, inability to connect
  • Increased arousal – sleeplessness, anger, and hypervigilance

Early intervention is key

It’s important to be alert to the symptoms of PTSD and take action as soon as possible as early treatment will help you recover more quickly. But the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder usually appear within the first three months after a car accident but can show up years later.

This is a complex issue, and we can help you get medical and financial support so that you can avoid additional stress while you recovering from damages. If you are experiencing PTSD from a car accident, tell us your story – we can help.
