POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER (PTSD) IN PERSONAL INJURY CASES

Many people think of post-traumatic stress disorder as something that occurs in military contexts. They are familiar with the idea of military members and contract workers who have been injured in Iraq or Afghanistan as being at risk of PTSD. While it is true that many veterans struggle with PTSD, it is also true that many civilians who have been injured at home in "ordinary" car accidents and workplace accidents may also suffer from this disorder. PTSD, when it is present in a recovering accident victim, does not discriminate on the basis of where or how a traumatic injury occurred.

Have you, your doctors and your family been perplexed by your difficulty returning to a normal lifestyle after a car accident or workplace injury? You may experience symptoms such as apathy, depression, anxiety, tremors or a sleep disorder. You may find it difficult or impossible to let go of the memory of the trauma of the crash or serious accident. PTSD may leave you unable to hold down a 40-hour-a-week job or function well in your personal life.
