Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
After a very serious accident caused by another person’s negligence, there are a number of different problems that may continue to affect the victim. Emotional pain and psychological disorders related to traumatic incidents can become symptomatic weeks or even months after the accident.
Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is one psychological disorder that is fairly common among victims of serious accidents. PTSD is an anxiety disorder that is caused by instances of intense trauma.
