Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a serious condition that can develop after a frightening event harms or threatens to harm you or another person, especially if it is a loved one.

If you experienced a traumatic event at work that has caused changes in your behavior or ability to work, you can gain workers’ compensation benefits. Moebes Law, LLC specializes in gaining workers’ compensation for those facing PTSD.
Am I suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder from the Workplace?
Dangerous events can cause PTS Disorder in people of all ages. These traumatic occasions can include being victim of or witnessing an injury, robbery, car accident, natural disaster, or any other traumatic event. If a dangerous or traumatic event occurs in the workplace, it can be hard for employees to return to their job-site without triggering symptoms of PTSD. Some of the symptoms of PTS Disorder include:
- Re-experiencing symptoms
- Bad Dreams
- Frightening thoughts
- Avoidance symptoms
- Avoiding places, objects, or events that remind you of the experience
- Feeling emotionally numb, guilty, depressed, or worried
- Difficulty remembering the traumatic event
- Losing interest in hobbies and events that used to be enjoyable
- Hyper-arousal symptoms
- Being easily startled
- Feeling tense or anxious
- Difficulty sleeping or concentrating
- Experiencing outbursts of anger
People suffering Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder may experience symptoms immediately, or up to a few months after the traumatizing situation. Some patients suffering PTSD recover within 6 months, while others experience chronic symptoms. If your onset of PTSD was due to workplace conditions, it may be difficult to return to work or perform tasks required by your job. A loss of income may add to your stress and further your risk of experiencing PTSD symptoms.
