The threat of post-traumatic stress disorder
Post-traumatic stress disorder is a serious medical condition that typically results from a threat of injury to a person. It is commonly used in the context of soldiers returning from war in the middle east.
However, the disorder can occur to many different people in many different circumstances. It frequently can occur in the home after domestic abuse, and signs of the disorder may not show for many months.
In personal injury lawsuits, post-traumatic stress disorder may be cause for additional damages. If you or anyone you know is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder after an accident, contact the Iowa personal injury lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at 877-327-2600.
