What is post-traumatic stress disorder?

PTSD is a condition that a victim develops after experiencing a dangerous or frightening event. Many car accident victims experience the “fight or flight” response immediately following a crash. The majority will quickly recover from that response, however, there are also some victims who still feel the fear long after the crash. These victims will often feel afraid or stressed, even when there is no danger present. This is PTSD.
