What Is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)?
Post-traumatic stress disorder, often referred to as PTSD, is a type of mental suffering that results from being in a traumatic event. Many people think of PTSD as only something that happens to war veterans after experiencing war trauma, but others can experience PTSD as well.
Any traumatic event can cause PTSD. You can suffer from nightmares, difficulty sleeping, restlessness, agitation, fear, and anxiety. All of these symptoms can negatively impact you, decreasing your quality of life. Your ABQ PTSD attorney will work hard to see that you are compensated for your mental suffering.
Can You Receive Monetary Compensation for PTSD?
You can add mental trauma to your injury claim, and you can receive compensation for this form of suffering. You can also be compensated for other nonphysical injuries, such as pain, stress, anguish, and the loss of life happiness.
Types of Accidents That Could Cause Post-Traumatic Stress in Injury Victims
Any accident can cause post-traumatic stress; in fact, it could be argued that all people suffer a small degree of trauma following an accident of any kind. The more serious your accident is, the more extensive the trauma could be for you.
For instance, a serious car accident can result in great trauma, fear of getting into a vehicle, and fear of leaving the house.
The following accidents could result in PTSD for the victims:
- Motorcycle wrecks
- Trucking collisions
- Falls from a great height
- Nursing home abuse
- Car accidents
- Product injuries
- Medical malpractice
