DBA Law Explained: What is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)? The DBA and PTSD

In My Opinion, PTSD Is An Injury

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder 

According to the Mayo Clinic, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is a mental health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.

Many people who go through traumatic events have difficulty adjusting and coping for a while. But with time and taking care of yourself, such traumatic reactions usually get better. In some cases, though, the symptoms can get worse or last for months or even years. Sometimes they may completely shake up your life. In a case such as this, you may have post-traumatic stress disorder.

My Best Advice

Nothing is more important when handling your case, then speaking the truth. People who believe if they sugarcoat their case, it will help them win their case. Wrong.

You have to be up-front, honest, and truthful to your attorney and the judge. If a judge suspects you're not telling the truth, you can say goodbye to your case. Count on it. I have seen it time and time again.
