Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Following a serious accident, victims may suffer from a number of injuries. While most people initially address physical injuries, it is important to also consider the possibility for psychological damage. Oftentimes, this type of damage can haunt victims long after their physical injuries have been resolved. Post traumatic stress disorder (or PTSD) is a common psychological condition that may manifest in a number of ways.
