PTSD & The DBA - - What is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)?

“Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.” Spencer Johnson

Defense Base Act and PTSD

Truth Matters

When handling your DBA case, nothing matters more then the honest truth. Nothing. You must be straight forward and honest about your case. I have seen many instances where a client will sugar coat their injury and the courts throw out the case. Why? All because they were not honest from the get-go.

The DBA insurance company is not on your side. They have traps laying around for you to fall in. And bet on it, if you do not follow the proper steps with your DBA case, you will fall right in.

The Next Step

Remember the DBA insurance company is not your friend. I strongly suggest you order a free copy of my book, Win Your Defense Base Act Case: The Ultimate Straight Talk Roadmap To The Medical Treatment and Money You and Your Family Deserve. Trust me. My only goal here is to make sure honest hard working folks like you, do not get ripped off by these companies.

The book has plenty of great reviews on Amazon, and it is a guide to only help you succeed in your case.

Also you can check out my podcast at DBAradio.com where i cover important DBA issues.

What is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)?

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.

Get Treatment As Soon As Possible

Getting treatment as soon as possible after post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms develop may prevent long-term post-traumatic stress disorder.

The Stress Of It All

If you are a DBA worker that worked in Iraq and/or Afghanistan (and other stressful countries) then you may have trouble dealing with the aftermath. If so, you aren't alone. Many, many DBA workers suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, have severe stress, anxiety and the like.

The symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder include nightmares, flashbacks, mood swings, crying spells, difficulty sleeping, irritability, depression, feelings of helplessness or hopelessness, anger and anxiety. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can be very disabling.

What To Do?

First and foremost you need to get medical treatment in order to get better. Second, you need to hire the best Defense Base Act Lawyer you can find.  The Defense Base Act system is very, very slow.  The system has been overwhelmed by DBA workers just like you.  Based upon the calls we get, you are not alone.  

You deserve compensation for the way PTSD has destroyed your life. Filing a claim will help you get the compensation you need to help put your life back together.
