Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
"Can the victim of an Atlanta car accident sue for post-traumatic stress disorder?"
Yes. After a car accident, victims can be traumatized, reliving the incident over and over again. When this happens, a person is known to be suffering from a condition called post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD can interfere with a person's job, personal life, sleep, and day-to-day functioning. Victims of PTSD can have nightmares that keep them awake at night or flashbacks during the day that make them distracted at work. PTSD can make a person worried or anxious, and is a natural result of experiencing a traumatic event, such as a serious car accident.
People who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder have a harder time functioning in society, as they are unable to forget their fears and worries related to their accident. If you suffer from PTSD following a car crash that was caused by a careless driver, you need to contact Kalka & Baer LLC to find out your rights and what financial compensation you may be able to receive.
