Identifying Symptoms of PTSD after a Construction Accident in PA

The common symptoms indicative of PTSD after a serious injury or tragic accident include
(but are not limited to): 

  • Repeatedly experiencing the accident - Those suffering from PTSD may "re-live" a traumatic episode through flashbacks, hallucinations, or nightmares.
  • Aversion of certain things related to the accident - PTSD sufferers are prone to avoiding places, situations, or even people that are reminiscent of their accident. This behavior often leads to isolation and detachment.
  • Increased irritability and anxiety - Injured victims with PTSD may become irritable, aggressive, nervous, jumpy, or anti-social after the accident, and particularly with regard to things reminding them of the accident.
  • Physical symptoms - Increased blood pressure and heart rate, muscle tension or spasms, hyperventilation or respiratory agitation, nausea, and diarrhea are all symptomatic of PTSD after a traumatizing accident.

I knew a few guys who suffered from this after an on site accident back in 2008. They never got help and are still a wreck because of it. No joke, get the help you need it, for your friends and family.
