Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Colorado Personal Injury Lawyer

Every year, nearly 5.2 million Americans will experience the terrible effects of post traumatic stress disorder. Worse yet, approximately one in every eight Americans will experience post traumatic stress disorder at some point in their lives. This disorder can affect nearly every aspect of a person’s life and can become debilitating if not treated effectively. After a traumatic event such as a car accident, dog bite injury or assault, victims can experience a variety of psychological symptoms that can linger for years. Victims can have panic attacks, night terrors, vivid and uncomfortable flashbacks, depression and even difficulty sleeping. These symptoms can literally take over their lives and prevent them from maintaining relationships, continuing work and even leaving the house. If you have been involved in a traumatic accident and suffer from post traumatic stress disorder, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. A qualified psychiatrist may be able to minimize the effects of post traumatic stress disorder by prescribing the appropriate anxiety or depression medications and beginning “talk therapy”. It is absolutely critical to seek help, so you can avoid serious and life threatening consequences. If left untreated, post traumatic stress disorder can lead to severe depression, alcohol addiction, drug addiction and even suicide. Children and the elderly are often at an increased risk for developing post traumatic stress disorder after a traumatic event and should be monitored closely for signs and symptoms. If your post traumatic stress disorder was caused by another person’s negligence or actions, you may be entitled to financial compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, psychiatric rehabilitation and even decreased quality of life. A veteran Colorado personal injury attorney will be able to obtain the compensation you need to get your life back on track. You do not have to live your life in fear—call a Colorado personal injury attorney today.
