Any shattering life event can cause you trauma: physical assault, sexual abuse, war, natural disasters, or a car crash. It is normal for a person to deal with trauma for quite some time before they progressively recover. However, for people with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the situation may actually be in reverse. He or she may feel increasingly worse as time goes by.
The second reaction to PTSD is intrusive. Intrusive reactions to PTSD involve re-experiencing the traumatic event through flashbacks, nightmares, and distressing memories. During recollection, the person feels emotionally distressed, causing him or her to experience intense physical reactions, such as rapid heartbeat, nausea, muscle twitching, and difficulty breathing.
PTSD can affect you not just emotionally, but physically and financially as well. If you believe you have suffered from PTSD due to a traumatic car crash caused by another party, explore the possibility of filing a claim by speaking with our team personal injury attorneys at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®.
