When you suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder due to a traumatic event, treatment is a must. At Cueria Law Firm, we have assisted many clients with filing for just compensation after experiencing PTSD due to accidents or traumatic events caused by other negligent individuals. When you are a witness or experience a traumatic event firsthand, you may experience PTSD on a variety of levels. Being diagnosed and seeking treatment is the first step in reclaiming your life. 

Causes and Symptoms of PTSD

PTSD can be caused by a variety of reasons including being involved in a car accident, being subject to physical or sexual abuse as well as sustaining a major injury or seeing someone critically injured. It is important to learn the causes and symptoms of PTSD so that you can recognize if you are affected and seek treatment as well as legal counsel. 

Symptoms of the condition can include reliving the event time and time again. Some people will relive the incident during sleep or while awake. Triggers can occur that will lead to reliving the event and feeling anxious as well as scared. Individuals with PTSD can begin to avoid loved ones or certain situations that remind them of the traumatic event. This can lead to disruptions in daily life. 

The affected individual may also experience emotional detachment as well as hyperarousal. The patient may not react the same to family members or friends, detaching themselves emotionally from their loved ones. The individual may also be quick to anger or fear based on certain situations. 

Treatment Types for PTSD

Treatment is essential for dealing with PTSD. There are three main categories of treatment with the first being cognitive behavioral therapy. Also known as CBT, this treatment type will help the individual learn how to reinterpret and re-evaluate situations, thoughts, and behaviors. The goal is to help the individual to learn how to cope with emotions as well as reduce any avoidance behavior. 

With CBT, patients may be offered Exposure therapy, stress inoculation training or cognitive processing therapy. With exposure therapy, the patient will be exposed to triggers to help reduce anxiety and fear associated with the action or situation. 

With stress inoculation training, the individual learns how to deal with fear and anxiety associated with any reminders of the trauma. The patient learns how to become aware of triggers and then recognize signs and symptoms and cope accordingly. 

The last CBT option, cognitive processing therapy, was developed for individuals who have been sexually assaulted. The program has 12 steps and will focus on negative emotions along with the trauma that occurred. 

A second category type is Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing. With EMDR, the patient works through stages to address the traumatic experience and learns coping mechanisms to learn how to stop PTSD behaviors. 

Medication is a third option for PTSD patients. Drug therapy can work and includes several medication types including anxiolytics, antidepressants, and antipsychotics. Medications commonly used include: 

  • Zoloft
  • Wellbutrin
  • Paxil
  • Prozac
  • Lexapro
  • Xanax
  • Zyprexa 
  • And more

PTSD can be disabling. If you or a loved one have been in an accident or traumatic event and suffer from PTSD, give our Louisiana personal injury attorneys a call. We can schedule you a consultation to review your individual circumstances and help you file a claim for compensation.
