Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a very serious and disabling psychiatric condition.  If you have been diagnosed with PTSD as a result of working in Iraq or Afghanistan, you may be entitled to valuable compensation and medical care under the Defense Base Act (DBA).  We have helped many injured workers who are returning from Iraq or Afghanistan who have been diagnosed with PTSD.  We have over 35 years of combined experience in handling this type of case. If you have not yet been diagnosed with PTSD but you have symptoms of this disorder, you may need to seek a psychiatric consultation.  The symptoms of PTSD can include nightmares, flashbacks, difficulty sleeping, irritability, depression, mood swings, crying spells, feelings of helplessness or hopelessness and anxiety.  These symptoms can be very disabling.  A psychiatrist may be able to help you diagnose and treat your condition to improve your emotional well being.  If you have this condition or these symptoms as a result of working in Iraq or Afghanistan, contact us so that we can steer you in the right direction to get the medical help you need and the compensation you deserve.
