What are the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder?
Many different accidents that carry the threat of injury or death can cause an individual to develop post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. Automobile accidents are a frequent cause of PTSD in the U.S. Symptoms of PTSD include having flashbacks or “reliving” the event in response to certain triggers, having nightmares, feeling emotionally numb, losing interest in normal activities, startling easily, having angry outbursts, and more. The symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder vary from person to person. According to research, it appears that some individuals are more likely to develop PTSD after an accident than others, though the reasons are not well known.
If you were involved in an accident that has caused you to have emotional distress or symptoms of PTSD, you may be entitled to compensation for the cost of treatment as well as the pain and suffering the event has caused you.
