EXPERIENCED LEGAL REPRESENTATION FOR POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER (PTSD) LAWSUITS
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a serious mental health disorder that develops after experiencing or witnessing a terrifying event. If you are suffering from PTSD there is a chance that you have a case and could be entitled to a settlement. PTSD Lawyer Tim Moynahan can help you through this difficult time, and help you to get the settlement you deserve.
Symptoms of PTSD may include intrusive flashbacks, nightmares of the event, severe emotional distress, avoidance, feelings of hopelessness, depression, self-destructive behavior, irritability, hyperarousal, and angry outbursts. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder disrupts one’s daily life—personal relationships, work, sleep—and it may bring about alcoholism and/or drug addiction.
PTSD symptoms typically ensue directly after the incident but these symptoms can also be delayed for months. Here are three different types of PTSD:
- Acute: symptoms have lasted for < than three months
- Chronic: symptoms have lasted for > than three months
- Delayed: PTSD is delayed when it takes six months or more for the symptoms to develop
If you have been struggling with these symptoms for longer than four weeks, you should see a doctor who can diagnose and provide treatment.
PTSD is commonly associated with:
- war veterans
- serious vehicle accidents
- gun violence (eg: public shooting)
- rape, molestation, and abuse
- traumatic events like dog bites
If you have been diagnosed with PTSD, you may be able to receive compensation as part of a personal injury law suit or an injury-related insurance claim.
