Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Disability Claims


What is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?


Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) occurs when an individual has experienced or yet witnessed severe trauma that involves the threat of violence or danger to life or physical wellbeing. Some of the situations include physical and sexual abuse, serious accident, assault, and exposure to military combat.

Fascinatingly, PTSD will develop immediately after an inciting incident, or it may lay dormant for months or years before emerging and affecting your functionality.

The symptoms of PTSD are categorized into four based on a specific set of symptoms that include:


Intrusive Memories


Negative Changes in Thoughts and Mood


Changes in Physical and Emotional Reactions
