PTSD Claims

Defense Base Act Attorneys in Texas

Although more attention has been devoted in recent years to raising public awareness about PTSD among military service members, U.S. government contractors working overseas in warzones are often overlooked, despite the fact that overseas contractors must work in high-risk situations that can cause PTSD.

What Is PTSD?

PTSD is a mental health problem caused by environmental stress or a traumatic event that leaves a lasting psychological impact. The symptoms of PTSD are not always apparent, which means some people neglect or delay treatment without realizing the severity of their condition.

Contractors working in military zones are confronted with many life-threatening situations, from roadside bombs to kidnappings. The following are some of the symptoms of PTSD:

  • Nightmares or flashbacks of the traumatic event
  • Avoiding things that trigger traumatic memories, such as crowds, driving, and loud noises
  • Avoiding talking about the traumatic event
  • Depression
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Inability to relax
  • Hypervigilance
