Wisconsin PTSD Claims Attorneys
Milwaukee Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Lawyers
Because most of the personal injury cases that we litigate involve a sudden moment of violent traumatic injury, ranging from an animal attack to a disabling injury in a serious workplace accident, it should come as no surprise that many of our plaintiff clients present symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder or acute stress disorder.
Contact an experienced Milwaukee post-traumatic stress claim lawyer at Domnitz & Skemp if you or anyone in your family has suffered a serious personal injury and is showing several or more of certain known and specific PTSD symptoms, such as the following:
- exaggerated startle response
- avoidance of the dangerous circumstance, such as a car accident survivor refusing to drive
- sleeplessness or recurrent nightmare
- social withdrawal
- chronic pain problems, such as headache or arthritis, that are unrelated to the injury
- signs of moderate or severe depression
- avoidance of thoughts, feelings, and conversations about the trauma
Stress disorders can be acute, chronic, or delayed onset, depending on how soon after the traumatic experience they began, and how quickly they are resolved. The symptoms in children are somewhat different and can involve repetitive play, disorganized behavior, or regression to a previous stage of development.
PTSD needs to be considered and, if present, included as an aspect of damages in any personal injury lawsuit. For example, if you've settled any type of liability claim, whether it be an auto or truck accident, a slip and fall case, a product liability case or an animal attack, before a complete workup by a neuropsychologist for a potential PTSD claim, you may be denying yourself full compensation. It takes a law firm experienced in detecting symptoms of PTSD to handle these cases with proper awareness of the need for early detection of symptoms. If your symptoms are not detected in time, you probably can't go back and claim compensation for the costs of treating the condition, regardless of how serious it may be.
To make sure that the full range of your damages in any accident are taken fully into account in settlement negotiations or a jury verdict, you need experienced civil trial attorneys who know how to analyze all of your damages at the earliest possible stages of the litigation.
