PTSD Symptoms

PTSD refers to the ongoing psychological trauma that many injury victims suffer. Some injury victims don’t immediately suffer PTSD after an accident. In fact, sometimes PTSD symptoms don’t emerge until months or years after the accident. If you’re suffering the following post-accident symptoms, you may have PTSD:

  • Flashbacks
  • Severe depression
  • Acute anxiety
  • Social isolation
  • Inattention
  • Insomnia
  • Anger

If you’re experiencing any of those PTSD symptoms, you should contact our Atlanta PTSD lawyers. We’ll collect information about the accident that injured you. Then, we’ll explain your symptoms to the insurance adjuster. That way, you can recover the compensation you deserve.

PTSD Treatment

PTSD victims should undergo counseling to improve their symptoms. Treatment for PTSD injuries often includes medications, as well. Most PTSD victims report improved symptoms when they undergo a combination of talk therapy and medications.

PTSD therapy is usually expensive. Your health insurance plan might not cover it. If so, don’t worry. We’ll help you find a therapist that will treat you on a lien basis. Thus, you don’t pay the therapist until our Atlanta PTSD lawyers settle your case.

Some injury victims don’t seek medical treatment because they think that their PTSD symptoms are temporary. Others are sometimes embarrassed to admit that they’re suffering from PTSD. We understand those concerns. However, your symptoms typically won’t improve if you avoid therapy.

Think of it this way: if you broke your legbone, you wouldn’t sit on your couch and wait for it to heal. The same is true with PTSD injuries. The accident disrupted your brain chemistry. Your brain won’t heal without proper medical treatment.

Also, if you don’t seek medical treatment for your distress, the insurance adjuster won’t pay you for your PTSD injury. Some adjusters even claim that PTSD injury victims are just “exaggerating” their injuries. Don’t give them an opportunity to insult your injuries.

Our Atlanta PTSD Lawyers Can Help You

Insurance adjusters often offer very little money to settle a victim’s emotional distress claim. Unfortunately, many personal injury lawyers don’t know how to properly explain emotional distress injuries.

In fact, attorneys that advertise on buses and billboards typically ignore injury victims’ emotional distress claims. They simply collect the victims’ medical bills. Then, they settle the case for the value of the medical bills.

That’s not how we operate at Graham Scofield Injury Lawyers. Here, we invest our time and money to maximize the value of each client’s claim. That means we’ll make sure that your PTSD injuries are fully evaluated and treated. Then, we’ll help you recover full compensation for your losses.

"When I felt all hope was lost, I contacted Graham Scofield to see if he could represent me. He immediately called me back and thoroughly reviewed with me the case. He was the most patient, kind, sympathetic and the upmost professional attorney throughout the entire process. He was also extremely knowledgeable about the law and was creative when the case worked through the twists and turns. He was also a heck of a fighter for me and got me more settlement than I was expecting. I only wish I called him sooner! Thank you so much Graham, you are an amazing lawyer!!"
