DBA Lawyer Obtains Benefits For Workers Diagnosed With PTSD As A Result Of Working In Iraq Or Afghanistan
If you have been diagnosed with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder ) 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 any questions about your benefits under the Defense Base Act, please contact Clifford R. Mermell, Esq.
