You may have experienced a traumatic event and feel anxious as a result. Perhaps you heard about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and you are concerned that you may be suffering from it. Be assured, not all anxious feelings following a trauma necessarily mean you are suffering from PTSD. Anxiety on its own is not the same psychiatric disorder as PTSD. If you are suffering from PTSD in South Dakota, you should seek medical attention for a full evaluation.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder could be a life-threatening disorder. Seek medical attention if you believe you are suffering from PTSD.

After meeting with a doctor, call Zimmer, Duncan & Cole, LLP, to speak with a South Dakota personal injury attorney about your situation. Our experienced attorneys in Sioux Falls and Parker are here to assist you.
