When somebody suffers through a horrifying event or accident, it can leave a terrible lasting touch on a person. Although having strong reactions to trauma is normal, some trauma is more severe and lasting. Often times when a person suffers through an event that is exceptionally shocking, they develop mental issues that are long-term and get in the way of living a normal life. If there is an irregular function of the normal defense systems following trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) might be the problem. By getting in touch with a San Diego post-traumatic stress disorder attorney, you may be able to receive compensation for your pain and suffering.
There are several ways in which a person displays symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. The victim may recollected the traumatic event and re-experience the distressing trauma. By bringing back memories and thoughts of the trauma, psychological distress will be brought back on. Another symptom a victim of post-traumatic stress disorder might display is persistent avoidance. This is when a person avoids trauma related thoughts, activities, and items. This avoidance could get in the way of leading a normal life. Another symptom is when the victim is in an increased state of arousal. This arousal may cause PTSD victims to suffer though outbursts of anger, sleep disturbances, difficulty concentrating, an exaggerated startle response when shocked, and irritability.
